C+ Architects is an architectural studio established by the architect Cheng Yanchun in Beijing in 2014. The studio’s aim is to reveal and resolve an issues concerning the relationship between human and nature and to realize the harmonious symbiosis among both.
Presented below is a recently completed by the team of C+ Architects — Renovation of No. 8 Building in Beijing Banbidian Industry Park. This two-story building with a exquisite glass facade was commissioned by the client who runs an Internet company, so thus the design of his office reflects the character of contemporaneity in a great way.
The building provides work space for almost 50 staff working together in the unique open space architecture. The architects of C+ Architects redefined the entrance area and designed “a straight-run stairs” to improve the functionality of the whole building. As described by C+ Architects, the “glowing staircase” is an essence and the core of the whole space which attracts attention.
The next crucial part of the inner space is a lighting. „For the purpose of improving lighting and ventilation, except newly opened window holes and enlarged ones on the brick wall of second floor, a new multi-purpose window featuring the thickness of the external wall of the building is devised”, the architects comment. Thanks to this thought through solution, the work space of No. 8 Building is embodied with natural light thus creating comfortable and stimulating area for development.
