Silo-top Studio in Guangzhou, China by O-office Architects

Friday, October 28th, 2016

Article source: O-office Architects 

In 2012, O-office transformed the top floor of a 1960s’ silo building in the oldest beer factory of Guangzhou, the central city of southern China. The 38-metre-high silo building locates on the south bank of one branch of the Pearl River, confronting the generic housing high rises and looking south to the city’s old downtown. The top floor used to be the inlet level for the wheat berry to be fill in the 12 silo’s below, thus full of square holes on it. A bridge building has been connecting the building part on top of the silo’s, and the vertical transportation tower at the east end.

Located in the old Royal Bank space on St-Jacques street in Old Montreal, the Crew offices is a project defined by a 12,000 office area for a tech start-up which would also include a café for freelance workers as well as for the public.  The project presented two distinct design challenges: The first design challenge originated from the client’s requirements- how to elaborate an architectural relationship and construct boundaries between the various program functions.  The second challenge became a deeper questioning on how to approach design in the context of a heritage building.
