Entry Description

DUTSdesign completed a renovation project that was founded in 1969 and formerly known as the school bus workshop of Shanghai Happy Motorcycle. The precise design of this two-story space ensured the permeability and flexibility of underlying office space. For the best visual effect, the entire second-floor is against the main entrance as a suspended battleship with ascending steel structure stairs complementing the black perforated steel grating with burgundy steel beams and roof plank. It is highlighting the grim temperament of modern industrial style.
