Construction on the MVRDV-designed Shenzhen Women & Children’s Centre is complete, transforming an old mixed-use tower into a vibrant and colorful skyscraper hosting a hotel and a wide range of facilities for the welfare of women and children: a library, an auditorium, a children’s theatre and “discovery hall”, as well as therapy rooms and offices for staff. With its colorful façade, the building is a refreshing presence in Shenzhen’s Futian district; more importantly, at 100 meters tall, the building sets an important precedent for repurposing buildings in a city that is soon to see a “great wave of adaptive reuse”.

Medifer Office / Impepinable Studio

September 26, 2023 Hadir Al Koshta 0

The renovation of the offices of this SME dedicated to the sale of agricultural products represents a significant change in its work environment. The need to update the facilities arose as a response to the evolving demands of a changing work world and the ambition to align the company’s image with its growth strategy. The existing building had an inefficient layout and an overall outdated appearance. A dark central corridor served as access to a series of offices of varying sizes, creating a fragmented atmosphere and a perception of an opaque organization. The lack of connection between the multiple rooms hindered collaboration, communication among employees, and the welcoming of visitors.

Upgrading and Renovation of Dinghao Electronics Building / Nikken Sekkei

September 25, 2023 July Shao 0

This project is a conversion of the Ding Hao Building, a 200,000 square-meter commercial and office complex completed in 2003 and 2008 in Zhongguancun, Beijing, an area known as the Silicon Valley of China. Many IT companies are headquartered in Zhongguancun, and with Peking University and Tsinghua University located nearby, the area has become a major hub of advanced companies in Beijing. The building stands on a corner site that can be considered the gateway to the Zhongguancun area in relation to Beijing’s Fourth Ring Road and also has a landmark presence in the area with two basement levels directly connected to Zhongguancun Station on Subway Line 4. However, the bustling market for cutting-edge electronic components has waned with the changing times, and in recent years, the building has become crowded with small retail stores. In this renovation, we took on the challenge of revitalizing the building as a high-end office space in response to the increasing demand for business functions in buildings.

Renovating this building, in addition to adjusting the use of the building, also focuses on improving relations with surrounding neighbors.
