Riguan Clothing is a clothing design company engaged in children’s clothing design. The new headquarters is located in Binjiang District, Hangzhou City. This project is a typical case of domestic urban renewal and space regeneration at the present stage, namely old factory buildings reconstruction design of self-use office space. The original building is an old factory with a dozen years. Based on the present situation of space, how to create bright, comfortable, flexible and changeable office environment in the space used in the production originally becomes the difficult point of design.
The first step is to catch the identity of the existing space. The whole factory building is a three-story building with 50 meters, and its standard floor size
is 2300sqm. Interior space is too deep, so the day lighting is restricted. In addition, large single floor area and column grid with rule configuration make the space be difficult to be flexible in actual use.
In order to make interior space have sufficient sunshine, the designer adds three atrium spaces in the process of factory buildings transformation so as to let the original interior space be divided into several different functional areas and extend natural light from outdoors to indoors, and strengthen the sense of depth of space. At the same time, the interior space is placed with ramp, corridor and other structures to connect the multi-layer space, and the users can communicate and interact through these paths in the different spaces so as to form a comprehensive office space of integrating office, rest, exhibition, reading, training and meeting. The atrium design with three different themes and functions not only creates the lightsome and cheerful atmosphere for office space but also makes users have the desire of space exploration and the motivity of the creative productivity.
