The project name takes the same name of a HK movie, which is about chasing dream. For the owner, this name stands for youth, vitality, mutual-aid and dream.
The owner has a strong desire for communication, so he requests that the design style of the whole office space should be communication-encouraging, funny and informal, and he hopes the boundary between working and living within this space to be weakened. Thus, the designer takes container as the design concept, through using industrial elements such as cement, handmade decorative tile, white cement brick and black iron creates an office space full of fun. A wall painting with a big smile warms everybody’s heart and tells everyone to smile to life.
To realize the initial goal of building a stronger community relation within this limited working space, the owner divides the office space into 3 separated working area and a public leisure space and subleases them to a group of young entrepreneurs. The owner meets and gets together with entrepreneurs here, sharing the space, office services and startup ideas, and, together, they form a dynamic and passionate community of entrepreneurs.
This is also a baptism for the post- 80s under the interweaving, swinging and determination of all kinds of desires and limitations of reality.
C(Chi) — a ruler measures the beauty in our heart.
D(Dao) — a kind of philosophy of understanding design.
Mr LI Xing-Lin and Miss HE Xiao-Ping co-founded C.DD in 2009. It always adheres to the concept of “Design is not only a kind of production service, but also a way of thinking and an attitude towards life”. The team develops multi-disciplinary services, including architecture design, space design, engineering construction, art of display and brand vision design services. The opinion “to build the theater of the mind and to realize our shared dream; to focus on providing top quality design and service to create the greatest value for clients; to research and explore interesting, meaningful and valuable design” is regarded as the core of development of the company. And this opinion penetrates throughout its creation, production, operation and service.

LI Xing-Lin – Love to summarize different kinds of fun in life, attempt to break the stereotype and to seek for innovation possibilities from different angles through comprehensive use of rational and perceptual thinking in order to bring people different experience of design.
HE Xiao-Ping – design is to spread some kind of idea, value and lifestyle. It has no fixed form, and good designs should create emotions and fun while meeting functional needs; that is why we are crazy about design.
