Appreciation towards atelier xy for providing the following description:

幸福公园坐落于幸福路上一幢位置显著但却极不起眼的老厂房三楼,对面是一个绿地公园。这幢建于上世纪50年代的3层斜顶砖墙式老厂房,平面面积约为200平米,三楼最高处的层高有5.5米。幸福公园是Hidden Group第一个实验性的联合办公项目,不同领域的设计师聚集于此,构成微小却丰富的行业生态。Atelier xy应邀进行建筑改造和空间设计。

入驻幸福公园设计师来自各个知名公司、曾经独当一面,如今初创事业,或者希望保持独立的工作方式。由Hidden Group发起的共享空间提议很快得到响应。当共享经济的热潮渐渐冷却的时候,实际上人们才刚刚开始将共享和分享纳入日常。因此幸福公园探讨的从来都不是使用权和所有权层面的Sharing Economy,更不是盲目随机的“Co”,而是作为个体如何在占有(having)和存在(being)之间进行选择,如何在群体之中自处,并与之相安。

自然地,如何充分考虑这些建筑师、室内设计师、服装设计师、产品设计师、以及资产管理团队的专业特性,鼓励各专业之间的交流和协作;又要同时满足公共空间的开放性和私密性,是Atelier xy在这个项目中最关注的问题。

Situated at the park neighborhood of changning in Shanghai, Xingfu park co-working could be found at the end of the branch of Huashan road, in the top floor of a three-storey brick Spire roof house. Xingfu park is the first experimental co-working project that founded by hidden group, in the purpose of gathering muti-disciplinary background designers together, and stimulating the potential for collaboration. Atelier xy was in charge of the architecture renovation and interior design.

The designers who settled in Xingfu Park came from various well-known companies and used to supervise important projects. Now they are here either starting their own businesses, keeping an independent way or working. The proposal for a sharing space initiated by Hidden Group was quickly responded. As the upsurge of the sharing economy gradually cooled down, in fact people have just begun to incorporate sharing and sharing into the daily life. Therefore, the right of use and ownership is never what Xingfu Park’s discussing about the sharing economy, let alone the random “CO”. The point is, as an individual, how to choose having from being, and how to handle and live in harmony with the crowd.

To fully consider the professional characteristics of these architects, interior designers, fashion designer, product designers, and asset management teams; To encourage communication and collocation among various professions. At the same time, to balance the openness of public spaces and privacy is the top concern of Atelier xy in this project.

传统的办公空间通常是运用隔墙围合出一个个不同功能的房间,房间与房间之间自然的形成了走廊。Atelier xy反其道而行:把走廊作为整个空间的设计重点,将它视为一个独立的体量嵌入这个开敞空间。而走廊本身也融合了入口,交通,背景墙,隐藏设备等功能。同时,由于走廊体量的存在,整个空间很自然地被分成了开放式办公区和其他功能区。走廊设计完成了,整个空间的设计也就完成了。

Traditional office space normally uses partitions to enclose rooms of different function, besides rooms are corridors. Atelier xy goes the opposite way by taking corridor as the key object of the entire space, treating it as an independent volume embedded in this open space. The corridor itself also incorporates functions like entrance, traffic circulation, feature wall,hidden equipment, and etc. At the same time, due to the volume of the corridor, the entire space is naturally divided into open office area and other functional areas. Once we defined the corridor, the design of the space is completed too.

靠近入口的产品设计展厅以水泥自流平和白色涂料为主要材料, 展厅的吊顶材料和墙上的窗洞开口延续走廊使用现代的不锈钢材料。

Showroom next to the entrance also uses cement self-leveling and wall paint as the main material. The ceiling and the window opening on the wall apply stainless steel material for the corridor.

Based on this design concept, architect subdivided the corridor material into 4 different finish stainless steel plates, stainless steel perforated plates, and mirror materials to increase the diversity of space. The window at the end of corridor echoes the mirror from the other end, with a thin light strip through the corridor; architect increases the infinite spaciousness of the corridor.

In order to preserve the original structure and height of the old factory building, and to enhance the daylight as much as possible, Atelier xy boldly removed all partitions and floor slab that was built in the past few decades, so that we end up with a historically space of quiet and rational though.

Several large windows in the south have been retained to ensure sufficient natural lighting for the working area. As a shared space, xingfu park is very restrained for having only 4 working table. The wall-mounted material display to the west has become the base of space theme, reminding everyone that this is a shared office with a design theme. There is enough spare space for designers who settle in according to their professional characteristics.

Material library and several desks in working area are made of multi-layer birch laminate. The wire space is smartly hidden inside the desk. A Carrara marble cover plate not only illustrates the function but also shows detail and texture.

The original wooden roof on the second floor combining with warm lighting provides a warmer atmosphere to the showroom. The window opening on the second floor was the attic’s door opening before. Through the window, people can see another former door above in the main wall of the office area. Architect preserved the door frame as it was. People can see the small window on the west façade through the used door opening. The progressive spatial has a sense of time. People can recall the scenes of more than ten years ago, while simultaneously have a panoramic view of the modern working daily in xingfu park.

Conference room located in the north of the space adopts self-leveling cement and light gray wall paint. The metal cross steel profile which is neatly arranged on the wall in an array on the background wall is to set material samples. The stainless steel ring chandelier hanging above the conference table highlights the room.

利落的平面构成了极其单纯的动线,完整多样的功能恰到好处地嵌入其中,丰富的材料以小心翼翼的节点收口,简练精致的定制灯具和空间浑然一体. 以上所有建筑师的用力,在原始屋顶之下都消失了。幻想着某种自由、憧憬着模糊未来的人们来到这里,有限地交往,理性地存在。关系的边界也消失了。

The layout constitutes a simple circulation, containing complete and rich functions. Different materials and nice details are match with interior space, as well as refined customized lighting. All design language and achievement of the above disappear under the original wooden roof. People who fantasize about a certain freedom and dream of a fuzzy future come and work here, have limited communication and exist rationally. The boundaries of the relationship also gone.
