The Ledu City B1 is the first built edifice of the entire development.
2. Project characteristics, box concept interspersed in existing structures and spaces
SUD architect combines many existing experiences in Europe and the existing characteristics of the project site, proposes to retain all the main structures, and the facade has been adjusted and beautified. The opening height of the main entrance has been increased to accommodate the lobby requirements of the coworking office.
The interior space does not increase the partition wall as much as possible, making the interior lighting better and feeling more open. By wood materials and glass, the office space is warm and transparent.
The open atrium became a common living room in the building. In order to express the memory and respect for history, the metal trusses of industrial plants are preserved, while giving the space a flowing time shuttle atmosphere, while the existing functions are the characteristics of brand-new function as coworking office.
