The project is located in the West of Chengdu High-tech Zone, Sichuan, with a total area of 40,000 square meters. The first production base is divided into two major functions: original medicine production and office&life supporting. The design takes production safety, humanism and green ecology as planning concept, breaks the traditional single-functional layout mode of factory buildings in spatial planning, follows the principle of project regional characteristics and enterprise uniqueness, and builds a modern and new life in production demonstration base of original medicines.

It’s important to create an efficient and rational working environment together with  a comfortable and vigorous office-living environment through rational planning and layout, at the same time highlighting the characteristics of innovative medicine  enterprises are the key issues of the design under the conditions of meeting the normal use of different functions such as production, office and related life support.

According to the demand of production technology, building orientation, wind direction and municipal pipeline network connection, clear functional zoning of the park is carried out, the production area is intensively located in the southwest of the land, the living office area is located in the northeast of the land, four volumes of the plant area are juxtaposed, intensive and efficient, and the process flow line is reasonable. The living office supporting system encloses the inner courtyard with double "L", forming the area independent of production. The two functional areas have their own independent entrances and exits to avoid the cross-interference of people flow and logistics.

The factory building design breaks the traditional rigid closed mode. On the premise of meeting the GMP technical specifications, it uses part of the public open space to promote the blending of the environment inside and outside the factory and construct a healthy and green production environment.

The auxiliary power center, sewage station and other equipment rooms attached to the factory area, combined with the ecological concept, are gathered into a whole, and concentrate on the southwest of the land with hidden landscaping design techniques, forming a green roof garden, and combining the exhaust chimney with the elevation texture of benzene ring molecular structure, forming the the factory area with a landmark the “chipscreen tower”.

The production plant breaks the rigid image of the traditional factory building by changing its elevation rhythmically, and forms a rational arrangement with the pipe corridors which are external horizontal and neat, two together endows with a new sense of industry and a rigorous spirit of order.

Office mode analysis
Office mode analysis

The design connects a series of public spaces such as meetings, training, exhibitions, sports, canteens and leisure bars in office and living areas through semi-enclosed shared courtyards, and combines with public space elements such as  waterscape, landscape steps, overhead corridors, activity platforms and leisure terraces to form three-dimensional, multi-level and lively space with active and interesting dynamic interface of community office life. The office space take no interest in the closed inner and outer corridor layout of traditional office buildings. By implanting green side courtyard and traffic atrium, the vertical flow of office space is formed, and permeates with the shared inner courtyard, thus creating a humanized office mode and a green dynamic space form.
