Shanghai 777 Factory
Factory conversion & extension
The project keeps and respects the character of a group of former factory buildings, and adapts them to the new use of modern loft offices.
Main façade materials are brick and bright – almost white coloured – granite, used in a way that they generate a classical modern industrial appearance.
Metal in a warm charcoal grey is used for windows and secondary cladding elements, e.g. for hidden air conditioning units.
The project includes a 9-level newly constructed office tower, the façade of which follows the same design principles as the refurbished buildings, making it an inseparable part of the whole development.
