Base Serviced Apartments and Offices

Redesign of an old sewing factory and office building into a full-service apartment and loft offices complex. Shanghai attracts businesses from outside of Shanghai as well as from abroad. Base is creating a place for professionals and their families that goes beyond the business traveler's experience that hotels can offer.

The apartment building is efficiently layouted and comprises a wide portfolio of units ranging from studio apartments to two bedroom apartments for families. The spaces are simple and bright with all the amenities that make Base a home rather than a rented space. During the renovation, the building's structure was cleaned of the traces of its various previous uses and stripped to the raw material. In many instances, this industrial rawness is combined with warm and friendly materials to create a very reduced and functional appearance.

The office building consists of four loft spaces that are partitioned with movable wall elements to provide all necessary smaller rooms, such as meeting room, library and kitchen while leaving the major part of the office as an open plan space for clients to use according to their individual requirements. The substance of the building, a structure of columns and beams made of reinforced concrete is uncovered and left raw to show the building's industrial heritage. White painted brick walls create a light atmosphere perfect for creative businesses.

The rooftops of the buildings with their new connecting bridge are home to a new service layer consisting of a gymnasium and a rooftop bar with a roof garden.
