Office & Wine Lab

A 2-storey office with a wine tasting lab is inserted into an existing warehouse. Ground floor consists of mainly a wine tasting lab with special apparatus and second floor is made of offices and a meeting room. A layer of facade panels is introduced to mask monotonous and repetitive aluminum framed windows. It also acts as a protective screen to create a better working environment by dissociating from its parent factory space. The original rectangular box is displaced by angled facades which are made of untreated mild steel expandable metal sheets. In factory environment, the untreated expandable metal will rust away intentionally, a contrast to the spotless steel tanked warehouse.
