项目概况 | Project Overview
The project site is located at the intersection of North Shaanxi Road and Kangding Road in Jing’an District, Shanghai, with convenient transportation. The site covers an area of approximately 12,000 square meters, including three historic buildings, a building materials market and several small commercial stores. The site is located in the former concession area and is surrounded by paulownia trees and red brick buildings of old Shanghai style.

The project site has significant historical value as it retains remnants of the Concession period and the original industrial buildings. Looking back in history, after Shanghai opened its port under the Treaty of Nanking and the concessions were carved out, the first golden period in the history of Shanghai’s development as a cosmopolitan city came in the late 1920s. At that time, the site was colonized by the British and came to the forefront of history. Red brick police station, repair factory, training ground and dormitories in the Western architectural style were built on the site. In the 4th year of the Republic of China, to resolve the conflict between the Indian constables and the keepers of the constabulary, a Sikh Church was built on the site for the Indian constables to worship, which was then known as the Gordon Road Sikh Visitation Hall, and was the largest Sikh Visitation Hall in Shanghai. After 1943, Shanghai’s history as a rented city came to an end. The British withdrew from the land, leaving the buildings behind. The formerly beautiful church was converted at will and the repair factory adjacent to Kangding Road was transformed for commercial development, with a variety of retail outlets moving in and a clutter of shop signs obscuring the original buildings, the look of the Concession era disappeared.

设计初衷 | Original Design Intention
We plan to design a brand new creative industrial park that on the one hand preserves the historical atmosphere of the site as much as possible, but on the other hand brings together a diverse range of people and functions. Through our design, the basic shape and historical style of the buildings themselves are preserved, while at the same time their individualities are highlighted.

The main entrance at Kangding Road is quite narrow. In order to reshape and enhance the entrance, the existing sloping roof building next to the entrance has been partly removed, and the main entrance has been widened to ten meters to create an entrance plaza. In addition, a Mondrian glass partition pattern was used for the facade facing the square, the design of which makes the building permeable and allows people to see the interior lobby from the intersection of Kangding Road and North Shaanxi Road, with the interior activities being displayed through the glass into the open neighborhood.

Going north through the commercial street with its various cafes, people come to the center of the project site, where the minimalist and modern style in white prevails. This is where the studios of design companies come together and where a diverse and international group of people can interact with one another and share their ideas and creativity at any time.

In addition, there is another small entrance on North Shaanxi Road, which is connected to the shops along the street and extends into the inside. The entrance is designed to harmonize with the tenement style through a combination of continuous arched openings in the facade and charcoal grey brickwork, which naturally draws traffic into the inside.

愿景 | Vision
We hope to make a new creative park in the former Concession area, retaining as much of its historic style as possible, but with a distinctive character. We believe that the current trend in development is not to demolish and rebuild, but to reuse existing buildings in an adaptive manner, and to perpetuate the beauty of historical buildings. We expect this project to become a new landmark in Shanghai, and an indicator of more future developments that integrate people, space and history.
