This old factory in the 1960s along the Pearl River was formerly the largest Jinzhu River hydrogen peroxide water plant in South China. The repair traces of the wall silently announce the industrial history. Benlink Design transformed it into an office, going deep into the wild state to build a new order.
In the early stage of the project, the decorative surface of the original workshop is removed, and the space is like a white canvas. The ancient brick walls and columns are naturally revealed, and the new skin of the space together with the new decorative material. Natural time traces are coordinated in the collision. Also for the space such as the construction site like expression, stimulate the creation and thinking.
The facade is made of black adhesive stone, and the long opening is set in the whole black surface to break the solemn sense brought by the large area of black, and serve as the air outlet of internal and external circulation. And hide the lighting equipment in the opening, to meet the night lighting needs.
There is no publicity signboard on the door, the introduction and iron plate integration, the handwriting is naturally mottled with time. There are glass floor-to-ceiling Windows on one side, which forms an interaction between inside and outside. Standing in the street, you can see the inner front hall and guide the visitors to enter.
The spatial layout introduces the concept of oriental gardening. In the simple volume, the large gardening techniques of small medium connect different functional areas through three bridge forms, creating a space with broad vision and winding lines, bringing infinite and rich interesting experience.
The bridge body is like the corridor of the garden, with the form of the width and narrowness change, and has the functionality. At the same time, the link between the outside and the inside.
The front hall area, as the transition zone between outside and inside, is also the daily curation and activity area. The cable bridge body runs through the wall, the bottom shows an upward trend, and the light gradually changes from ceiling to the ground lamp, bringing a sense of introductory ritual on the senses. On both sides of the bridge, gravel to symbolize the primitive movement of the river. Natural and primitive form of expression, to create a garden-like atmosphere.
The bridge body in the working area is in the form of an island, connecting the office hall and the material manual area. As the main body of the space center, the middle island carries the daily discussion and interaction.
The two ends of the island are enclosed by the galvanized board display cabinet to naturally divide the area and form a back swimming line. The abstract display case block echoes the container on the bridge body, and achieves a harmonious state with the overall environment.
The ceiling is an inverted triangle, and the bridge cable is supported to form the bridge body. In the space where the original essence is the keynote, the furniture continues to continue the black of the facade, creating a mysterious and experimental sense of inclusiveness.
Deep in the space are partners' office and boardroom. The bridge shape here twists and turns through the middle, and surrounds the leisure space of the semi-outdoor courtyard. The water-absorbing stone is arranged in the details, which naturally absorbs water and grows moss, adding wild interest to the office scene.
Building a civilized order in the wild environment is a concise summary of the design process of the "Benlink Design" office space. It also shows the essential thinking of Benlink as a design company.
The word "wild" reveals the design context of Benlink. In the space of nature and wild interest, it constantly links the instant consciousness through communication and discussion and stimulates creativity.
The word "civilization", with a more rational attitude, conveys the essence of the direct attack and practices the long-term effect design concept. The design reserves the space for change, so as to fit the state of the user for a longer time, and expects to have a positive impact on both inside and outside.
On the local decorative material, the old brick wall and the brand new iron plate collide with each other, and constitute a harmonious state on the whole.
The collision between different ground materials, the use of details are natural spatial records.
The pillars of the original factory building reveal naturally and form a dialogue relationship with the new space.
I-steel as a local elevation of the ground closing way, the lamps and lanterns just hidden in the inside of I-steel, both lighting function and visual integration.
