Happiness Lane, first built in 1960s-70s, located in Shanghai Institute of Rubber Products(SIRP), No.381, PanyuRoad of Shanghai. Happiness Lane had its refurbishment renovated by G-Art Design in 2015. As an old factory remaining construction, many aspects of the existing building is not prepared well for the modern accommodation, so the architect took the advantage of its structure with contemporary construction measurement and method instead of pushing down the building.
There is no excessive decoration at ground level and still more spaces are spared to actualize conversation with inhabitants occupied in it. Custom-made human bode art lamp works as watchman in the space,bringing nimbus not only into it but also realizing interaction between people and interior. The staircase is reserved by keeping original structure and ground materials.Even the malformed parts plays important roles in respecting and memorizing the existing building. On the contrast,the redesigned handrailing with sense of sculpture appears concise and exquisite, colliding with malformed ground and ending up with completely new aesthetic perception. Red art installation hanging on the rooftops of the forth level is customized by the designer,named “DRIP”. Raindrop-like artwork runs through the entire floors vertically and implies that success is attributed to tiny accumulation from bottom-to-top. In this sense, it suggests the designer’s inner sentiment to art and space.
