“Architecture can become a landscape, meanwhile, landscape can also become a building. Before you enter the building space, you have already touched and experienced it. ”
发酵罐、工业管线、麦芽仓、煤仓、输煤廊、水塔、烟囱… 当置身于其中，已经被工业时代的庞然大物带来的历史感深深震慑，并沉浸其中。作为改革开放后中国第一家全面引进国外先进设备和工艺的现代化企业, 在城市化进程中，珠啤厂几乎见证了珠江两岸的变迁和整个城市产业的迭代更新。伴随着中轴线的南扩以及电商总部的进驻，珠啤厂已搬迁。城市的更新给闲置的厂房带来了新的机遇，原生产车间的构筑物被整体保留下来，新的功能被置入，封闭式的工业生产基地逐渐转变为开放的啤酒文化创意社区。
Fermentation tank, industrial pipeline, malt bin, coal bin, coal Gallery, water tower, chimney…. When you are in it, you have been deeply shocked by the sense of history brought by the giants of the industrial age and immersed in it. As the first modern enterprise in China to fully introduce advanced foreign equipment and technology after the reform and opening up, in the process of urbanization, Pearl River factory almost witnessed the changes on both sides of the Pearl River and the iterative renewal of the entire urban industry. With the South expansion of the central axis and the entry of e-commerce headquarters, the factory has been gradually relocated. The renewal of the city has brought new opportunities to the idle workshops. The structures of the original workshops have been preserved as a whole, new functions have been put in, and the closed industrial production base has gradually transformed into an open beer culture and creative community.

Located in the middle of the park, the project is a two-story square production workshop, which is almost surrounded by tall factories, Only the southwest corner is adjacent to the outdoor transportation pipeline corridor and connected with the external square. The newly implanted function is a new type of comprehensive club integrating office sharing, fitness, light catering, buyer’s shop, road show lecture and art exhibition. We hope to provide people with a new space for modern social activities, convey the new concept of healthy life, and reactivate this area through people’s participation.

When thinking about space in traditional philosophy, there is an unspoken premise: there is always space. They never ask “how does space exist”, but always ask “what is space”. In Heidegger’s view, space is not “what”, space is not an existence, space originally shows itself in our daily life, and only from this initial appearance, we can obtain knowledge about space itself; space is neither subjective nor objective.

We believe that every place has its own sense of time and space. Sense of time is the relationship between place function and human being in iteration and the social significance in a specific historical period. Sense of space is the landscape of the site, not the narrow sense landscape, which is a space segment with more extensive site characteristics. Sense of time and sense of space are not independent or obvious. It is usually necessary to dig deep into the potential of design, so that the value and energy of space itself can be brought into play, and it is appropriate.

It is a basic design strategy to use industrial sites as a ready-made landscape and to borrow them into the interior space. Through a large area of transparent glass facade in the southwest corner, the site landscape is introduced to weaken the building, and the visual focus is focused on the external industrial scene extended by the internal space. While the industrial landscape penetrates into the interior space, it also greatly integrates the integration of the outer activity square, corridor and interior space, so that the incoming people can have a continuous experience of the site from the outside to the inside, and hope to make the surrounding people’s participation in the site activities become a daily behavior.

The activities of the whole entrance are carried out around the site landscape. As a large ladder for art and road show activities, it connects the exhibition and front desk space on the first and second floors. The external square is equipped with stage devices and movable furniture for assembly activities. The flower pool in the industrial pipe corridor is designed as a step seat facing the building. Through the interaction of people and space, the place has a new nature of daily life and culture.

“scenery only appears when the eyes begin to move.” ——French philosopher Francois Julien
If the industrial site landscape is the first scene of entering the building, then next, the design hopes to bring the viewer into the second stage of experience. While retaining the original main structure, three courtyards are put into the interior of the building. As the core of the interior space, they create an internal landscape extending from the outside to the inside. With the movement of people in the space, from the external industrial sites to the internal bamboo garden, the light also changes from the side of the large French windows to the top of the courtyard skylight. The three courtyards connect the internal activity scenes. The fitness, salad bar, coffee bar and exhibition hall on the first floor and the shared office and sports area on the second floor are free to unfold around them. The wooden box planted on the south side is an independent office and buyer’s shop. Through a large area of glass and two wooden walls, the landscape of the external site is framed into the interior.

Landscape is the main body of space, and architecture is just the container of space, which presents the landscape from different angles.
Gravel and mirror stainless steel of the flower pools devices in the courtyard extend the external landscape slices, and also create an abstract landscape, so that the functions of each place are linked with the courtyard. Through the use of mirrors, let the internal and external landscape constantly reflect and extend in the space, so that the original deeper and more inward space presents an open state. At the same time, through the overlapping use of square natural skylight and artificial diffuse light, the whole building space becomes a dramatic narrative space through the change of light.

In modern architecture, white is often equated with purity, reality and rationality. For the use of white, the design hopes to express the abstract space, highlight the industrial sites, and reconstruct the courtyard and the external landscape through the changes of light in the white space, so as to create a real space that meets the needs of human activities, weaken the style, and make the sense of space more abstract and permanent.

The reconstructed building is involved in the original site relationship with a very humble attitude, and the time and space solidify, as if it should be. The bamboo in the courtyard and the historical relics in the industrial era, and the social activities in the information era are superimposed in the time and space picture, as if swaying in the light and shadow.
