[SPONSORED] Hallucinate Design Office’s factory adopts a steel framed structure to be both grand and delicate
Dissona’s factory was initially built in the 1980s. The new facade adopts whole steel-framed structure for grand appearance, which creates between the facade and previous exterior structure a deck space, serving as a social venue and an additional escape route. Grey steel elements bring a sense of magnificence and integration, and the design of the façade avoids monotony. The newly built facade also has the added benefit of sun protection, reducing the energy consumption for the tropical weather in the south China.
At the symmetrical reception area, the rays of the sun pour in through the ingenious designed ceiling. We adopt environment-friendly reengineering profile wood wool cement board on the wall, which can decrease the impact on the environment brought about by traditional wooden or fiber material and maximize efficient use of the capital.
Jury Committee of German IF Design Award has given high appraisal for this design: “we really like this design for it expresses the pure aesthetic environment in the space. We are deeply attracted by the whole environment occupied by the stripe element, and the invigorating and enthusiastic layout built from the wood, cement, steel and glass. This simple but elegant design has shown the sophisticated and skillful use of materials, transmitting the building function and maintaining its unique and delicate aesthetic feeling.
