Project Description

This is a workspace. We hope to bring people home feeling-warm and safe. This allows building a close relationship between people and the environment. The appearance of the sloping roof is like a home. Part of this is a concern for the environment. We want to renovate buildings in a way that minimizes energy waste.

A small farm in front of the building makes a joyful and harmonious living space for the employees. Throughout the year, regardless of rice fields, cloud rain, sunshine, unpredictable climate and seedling growth, the building itself will have different styles.

Three main appeals: Comfort, Energy, Environment. This building is refurbished following the 3R (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle) principle.

This is an old but new, technical but natural green building! On one hand, this work is revitalized with a series of transparent and ventilating curtains and brick walls, giving the originally destructed old building a new breathing exterior and allowing the best light into the office space to improve the space quality.

On the other hand, this work re-initiates community co-creation and makes the exterior a recognizable natural living landscape.
