Text description provided by the architects. Introduction
From the fashion circle to the art circle, the word “MIX&MATCH” has surpassed the scope of “retro mixed industrial trend” or “art mixed with beast”; and in the field of architectural design, the diverse, mixed and crossover thoughts have also brought us plenty of surprises…
Traditionally, our impression about plant is simple and noisy. However, we hope to break the existing recognition of traditional plant in the design for the headquarter buildings of Inventronics Group, a hi-tech enterprise which stands out in LED. We try to combine the multiple collision thoughts in the age of internet, merger with diverse functional space, and make it into a mixed type headquarter building integrating production, office and scientific research.
Complex Building in New Age Background
The design starts from the demand for diverse functions. It integrates the diverse functional spaces, including the large dimension space for production, the dedicated space for R&D, ordinary office space for administrative use and the high-end club which represents the image of the enterprise headquarters. It also tries to blur the boundary among different functional blocks through complex and diverse functional organization, thus to break the barrier among different strata, to gather people of different working posts, and to create more collision possibility for people in it.
Architectural Dimension of Distinct White and Black
The design takes two groups of connected flowing dimensions as prototype, and incorporate the feeling and experience during temporal and spatial transformation, thus to have the relatively abstract architectural intension obtain concrete expression. The two blocks of distinct white and black engage and interweave with each other. White represents the first line production team which is of great vigor while the black is the down-to-earth R&D team which is sober and prudent. The transparent glass blocks among them are just like a kind of invisible adhesive, implicating the independence and connection of the two.
Flexible Space Organization
To meet different demands for future development of the enterprises, the design creates comfortable working environment for different groups with the organization mode of “functional mode + atrium space”. Together with diverse indoor environment, it ensures the close connection among different functions but also ensures the flexible and efficient organization relationship. Meanwhile, it also finds a new thought for the variability of future space.
Open and Shared Public Space
In the new buildings of the city, the design puts the compound functional diversity in the open space through multiple platforms and multi-layered public space such as the sunken garden and the 3D green slopes. Together with the large span space and tranquil pool at the entrance to the ground floor, it attracts the outside traffic with amiable posture while ensuring the proper privacy for internal use. In this way, it breaks the boundary between indoor and outdoor space and contributes to the city with its landscape, while introducing the vigor of the city into it. Each time when night falls, the boundless pool at the entrance reflects the sixth facade at the top and renders a picturesque scene for the city.
No one live in the city in isolation. It is also true with the architecture. We hope that we could put more vigorous space into it by resorting to the internet thoughts with the precondition of satisfying the diverse demands of hi-tech enterprise development. We hope to ignite different sparks among different group of people and to offer the city and different users with more kindness through this building.
