TCL Building, located in Nanshan District, Shenzhen, is the first headquarters building of this electronic enterprise in Shenzhen, which was initiated in Huizhou, Guangdong Province. It witnessed TCL's growth journey into a world-class enterprise. Due to the aging of equipment and buildings, the building space that does not meet the changing office needs, and the tight property management, the building has gradually become the price depression of the area. The feasibility study of the renovation of the building is carried out, hoping to draw a possible blueprint for the future of this landmark.
Redefine the scheme building from an inward-looking pure office building to an "office community service provider" that can serve the neighborhood. Firstly, the tower part and the U-shaped slab part are split to form two areas with different operation modes: the "tower" with central foyer and strict access control system, and the "commune" which is open to the city around the clock. Then, we subdivide the "commune" and open the 1st to 4th floors of the building to the city, forming a three-dimensional urban "block" with multiple service functions. In this block, there are a series of fascinating urban scenes such as squares, streets and gardens. Plants suitable for the southern climate grow vigorously in the "pores" of the building, softening the outline of the building and increasing its attraction.
The East Square, which is close to the subway station and above the huge steps, is the most prominent urban interface of the plot. The key point of the plan is how to make this site, which occupies the right place at the right time, achieve "harmony between people". The plan demolished the big steps lacking intimacy around the square and the green space that was not conducive to use, thus exposing the existing commercial space under the square, and obtaining a valuable display surface along the street and a comfortable sunken square. Above this sunken square, the northeast corner of the East Square is tilted up, and a traffic body starts from the street and crosses the square volume, jointly contributing to the dramatic city entrance. The whole East Square is in a semi-enclosed state, strengthening the sense of centripetal force, and giving birth to a theater that encourages urban activities.
A series of unused spaces in the original building have been given a new mission, resulting in an office ecosystem. The office space on the fourth floor of the commune was demolished and reorganized to become a "studio" community in a garden, giving each household a unique identity.
