Shanghai Organic Food Farm by Playze

Shanghai Organic Food Farm by Playze | What Surrounds You | Scoop.it

Sustainability and LEED Certified buildings are becoming an increasingly popular subject of planning and design, so it’s only natural that an organic food farm in China would be concerned with such issues.

Tony’s Farm is one of those concerned with being more green; which led to their collaboration with Playze for a new structure. A total of 78 shipping containers- all stacked, cantilevered and positioned every direction to house the corporate headquarters, meeting areas, lobby and warehouse.

A courtyard style structure allows for a nice outdoor space, great for impromptu meetings, lunch or anything in between. The interior is clean and simple, with the exterior providing as an impermeable barrier of the elements to the working environment...

Twisting Shapes and a Surprising Interior Design: Tea House in Shanghai

Twisting Shapes and a Surprising Interior Design: Tea House in Shanghai | What Surrounds You | Scoop.it

Tea House and library is a project envisioned by studio Archi-Union Architect and located in the backyard of Archi-Union Architects’ office in Shanghai, China. Its uncommon appearance obeys the rules of modern design, while adding a little extra.

According to the architects, the building “reacts to the site’s environment; the plan layout is a logically obscure quadrilateral, thus maximizing the amount of space. It is divided into three parts. A covered public area is formed towards the open space with the pool, with an enclosed tea house at ground level and library on the first floor where a small triangular balcony extends around the existing tree. Other more private spaces exist such as a lounge, reading room and service room which are arranged towards the rear of the building; a delightful transitional space was created to connect the public space and the private spaces”.
