Discipline: Interior Architecture

Five decades after the establishment, the renovation of interior space at China Times Media Group is both a physical makeover and a spiritual transformation. The concept of CT Park (China Times Park) is the basis of our design for the underground office area. We transformed the former printing factory into a vertically open space, taking away the dividing floors from B2 to B4 to create an expansively integrated 50 x 70 x 12 meters space, which serves as a platform for communication, exchange of opinions and events of various departments. To honor the history, we preserve the essence of the former printing factory. The remaining utensils and appliances of the factory are installed in the new office as public display of art, the rearrangement of which will also bring impact to the group with energy from the past. We aim to create an open and accessible space that accommodates creativity and ingenuity, thus to inspire a brand-new value of the globally local service. The renovated office area is a powerhouse for media workers, with efficiency-oriented office layout and mind-relaxing facilities, the process of seeking truth would still be precise, and more fun.
