E3 STUDIO 位于上海市长宁区中山公园东侧，拥有市中心最大的拍摄摄影棚，两千多平方米的场地，可塑性极强，即使是在内部重造出一个新的空间也不是不可能。超过六米的层高，除了满足拍摄对于层高的需求，局部还可以增加夹层，丰富空间，增加更多的使用面积。原先是一个游泳馆所带来的室内阻隔，我们全部拆除，空间在高敞中全然开阔。裸露着粗糙肌理的立柱和墙面，现浇水泥楼梯凌空而上，架起上下错落有致的空间结构。
Located on the east of Zhongshan Park in Changning District, Shanghai, E3 STUDIO has the largest shooting studio in the downtown. Its covering area is more than 2,000 square meters, which makes it extremely malleable and possible to recreate a new space inside. Its height is more than six meters, which not only meet the standard of the film’s shooting, but also can be divided to multiple stories, enriching the space and areas for usage. Originally there is an indoor barrier with a swimming pool kept the other side. Now we dismantled all barriers and the space was completely open to the air. The bare pillars and walls with rough texture are exposed, and the stairs made of cast-in-place concrete spring up high, leading to a whole orderly space.

The space between spaces is more meaningful than the space itself, but it is also easy to be unnoticed. It is precisely the diversity and complexity of “spaces between” and its uncertainty that make spaces potential with infinite possibilities. Six isolated shooting studios provide the comfort and freedom of the large space.
The design was inspired by the frame of the photographic camera. We saw the yin and yang through the frame, and the roundabout, squatting, cushioning, overflowing and blooming. Flowing thoughts and immovable architecture. Through these different sizes of frames, people still can see each other in different spaces and add up the fun. Natural lighting is also improved in the interior spaces.

Lighting is also the place where we made the most modifications of the entire interior renovation project. We add light without any traces, and all seems to be born like this.
▼增加采光而不露痕迹，bringing light in without any traces
Not a drop of paint was used in the renovation process, since we were afraid of destroying the original phase of the space. In other words, paint is not inconsistent with the original intention of sustainable and green renovation at low cost.
▼空间保持了原相，the initial conditions were remained through the design
▼室内细部，interior detailed view
The old wood sold in the second-hand market was cleaned and neatly arranged as the gates of the six studios. These half-worn woods seem to be born here naturally. They themselves are worn out because of numerous times of usage. Perhaps it is worthless for others, but those who use it again and appreciate it are interested in its past.

The amount of matter is measurable. However, the amount of the space and that of construction forms, whether it’s complex or simple, sometimes are the other way around. We should try to integrate the complicated functions of building and forms in detail; and everything seems to be simple without design, but with plenty of spaces at last. Let spaces reveal the beauty of contrast.
▼楼梯与光影，stairs in lights and shadows
We hope that every design will be restrained and exercised in an extremely simple way with simple materials, so that the building and space can be cleaner, more natural, more elegant, and more varied. Here, the spaces inside have infinite potential of changes.
