What role should a cafe hold in an office park?
Shanghai Lingang Marine High-tech Industrial Park is the leading industrial park for marine technology in China. FTA was invited to create a "Third Space" named "Haike Cafe" within to promote "convergence" and break the boundaries of life and work.
After talking with the park's staff and operators, we found that Marine High-tech Industrial Park hope to leverage cafe as a social center to bring people together, meeting the needs of different crowd at different time-slot, and people will have four ways to use the cafe:
Mobile office, leisure office, road show, business meeting.
Next, we are thinking about how people will be feel in this cafe.
it should be comfortable, relaxed, energetic, full of freshness; and have a sense of belonging.
通过分析现场，FTA发现，原有的空间不完整，入口太多，材料冰冷，空间没有主次，到达不便捷。于是设计以三个入口的交接中心点为核心，重新构建整个空间秩序。这也是整个设计的关键概念：exchange - 交融。
Through the analysis of the original space, FTA design team found that the original space is incomplete: the entrance is mixed, the material is cold, and the arrival is not convenient. The design then re-constructs the entire spatial order with the center of the intersection of the three entrances as the core. This is also the key concept of the entire design: exchange.
After the concept and experience are determined, FTA creates a warm and comfortable feeling by using the color palette of the sea, providing a color floor for informal communication,
