GID Office

Being a historic building, the original structure was not allowed to be greatly altered which made the design work challenging. Working with the original structure, the designer created new blocks and functions, rebuilding the spatial order and aesthetics. The designer changed the iron finish on the facade from grey to white, installed a black frame, and raised the roof 30cm in height, creating a peaceful and modern space in traditional downtown area. The first floor breaks with the design of traditional office spaces and is positioned as a small-scale art museum and collection. Using artworks and original design products, the space can be adjusted according to different demands and has infinite possibilities. Meanwhile, the peaceful and cosy atmosphere offers a relaxed space away from busy city life.
