Located in Blue Peacock Block, Gongshu District, Hangzhou, the renovation project’s planning, architecture, landscape, interior and soft decoration are both designed by LYCS Architecture. It contains two parts, the office and the city park.
01The Opportunity of Rebirth
位于京杭大运河最南端的拱墅区是杭州传统工业区，聚集着杭钢、杭锅、蓝孔雀化纤厂等工业企业。蓝孔雀化纤厂是当时全国最大化纤企业之一，产品远销欧亚12个国家和地区。Gongshu district, located at the southernmost of Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal, is a traditional industrial zone of Hangzhou, with industrial enterprises such as Hangzhou steel factory, Hangzhou pot, Blue Peacock chemical fabric factory, etc. Blue Peacock Chemical Fibre Factory was one of the largest fiber enterprises in China at that time. Its products were exported to twelve countries and regions in Eurasia.
90年代，拱墅区由工业重地向城市生活功能转型。区内的高能耗、高排放企业相继关停转迁，蓝孔雀化纤厂原址逐渐荒废。直到2018年，杭州工发集团携手零壹城市启动改造项目，老厂房迎来了重生的契机。In the 1990s, Gongshu District transitioned from industrial to urban life function. High-energy and high-emission enterprises in the region had been shut down and transferred one after another, and the original site of the Blue Peacock Chemical Fiber Factory had gradually been abandoned. Until 2018, Hangzhou Industrial Development Group joined hands with LYCS Architecture to launch the renovation project, which ushered in an opportunity to resurreate the old factory.△改造前的场地 | The Site before Renovation
Repair the Old as the Old场地内共5栋遗留建筑，4栋厂房，1栋宿舍，多建于上世纪70-90年代，以混凝土框架结构和砖混结构为主，外立面侵蚀严重，门窗大多已严重损毁。但透过斑驳的墙面，锈迹斑斑的窗框及极具年代标志性的屋顶，依然能让人清晰的感受到曾经这片土地上的工业气息。There were five legacy buildings on the site, including four factories and one factory dormitory, which were built between the 1970s and 1990s. The building structure was mainly concrete frame structure and brick-mixed structure. The external facade was seriously eroded, and most of the doors and windows had been seriously damaged. people can still clearly feel the industrial atmosphere of the land through the mottled walls, rusty window frames and landmark roofs.

遗留建筑经专业机构评估，地基基础大部分符合现行国家标准的可靠性要求，予以保留；承重结构略低于现行国家标准的可靠性要求，但经过加固修缮即可符合要求；围护结构大多受潮严重，已无法满足保温、隔热、防水等基本要求，需拆除并重建。The legacy buildings were assessed by professional institutions and concluded that most of the foundation foundation met the reliability requirements of the existing national standards and was retained; the load-bearing structure was slightly lower than the reliability requirements of the current national standards, but can meet the requirements after reinforcement and repair. Most of the envelopes of the buildings were damp, unable to meet basic needs such as insulation, insulation and waterproofing, and need to be dismantled and rebuilt.

In the enclosure structure, arched roofs, old bricks and walls with the words "catching revolution and promoting production" were very landmark in the era. At the beginning of construction, these reserved elements were carefully peeled, retained and professionally processed from the building.Retained Walls and Arched Roofs
Large floor windows were designed on the facade to meet the needs of indoor office space for light quality. The vertical window frame was equipped with simple lines. The bronze aluminum plate was in sharp contrast to the "old as old" wall, which embellished the exquisiteness of modern office buildings in the original rough wool left over from industry.△简约的现代窗框 | Modern Window Frame
The design put new spatial elements into the old building to inject new vitality into the old factory. The corridor was placed between the three old factories to enhance the coherence of various functional spaces and met the spatial requirements of modern office. The material of the corridor was consistent with the window frame, and dark gray aluminum plates were used to coordinate the overall tone of the building.

Repair the Old as the New
The new park was about to integrate into the modern city with a new role, the owners and designers hoped that in addition to bringing people the memories of the industrial era, more new elements would be placed in it to meet modern office needs and better integrate into the city.
“小白楼”前身为化纤厂的员工宿舍，作为场地与城市的连接载体，“整旧如新”的设计策略使城市界面的连续性得以实现。其设计在保留原始框架结构的基础上，对立面进行改造。The "Little White Building" used to be the employee dormitory of the chemical fiber factory. As the carrier of the connection between the site and the city, the design strategy of “repair the old as the new” to realize the continuity of the city interface. The design of the facade was modified on the basis of retaining the original frame structure.
Comparison before and after the Renovation“小白楼”的立面设计尊重原有结构的柱网模数，通过错动的开窗设计，为建筑增加了几分灵动，也在视觉上削弱了因原有建筑尺度造成的厚重感。开启扇的隐藏设计使立面的线条简约匀称，呈现的视觉效果更为整洁，在满足办公空间采光通风需求的同时，也提升了建筑的整体质感。
The facade design of the "Small White Building" respected the number of column mesh modulus of the original structure. Through the staggered window opening design, it made the building innervation and visually weakens the heavy sense caused by the original building scale. The hidden design of the open fan makd the lines of the facade simple and symmetrical, and the visual effects presented were cleaner. While meeting the lighting and ventilation needs of office space, it also improved the overall texture of the building.

04室内设计与建筑设计同步展开，延续建筑“修旧如旧，整旧如新”的设计理念。设计采用一种“box in box”的方法：在原建筑框架结构（大box）内置入独立的各功能空间（小box），将现代化的办公空间置入老厂房。
The design of interior space was synchronized with architectural design, continuing the design concept of building "Repair the Old as the Old, Repair the Old as the New". The design adopted a "box in box" method: internalize independent functional spaces (small boxes) in the original architectural frame structure (large box) and placed modern office spaces into old factories.△"box in box"概念图 | The Concept of “Box in Box”
Conference Room and Reception Area with Coherent Vision
The arched roof of the old factory was designed to be installed back in its original position. The reinforced material of the indoor roof was made of transparent glass, so that the arched roofs exist indoors like "historic relics samples".△二楼交通空间 | Traffic Space on the Second Floor
As one of the box, the concrete structure of the office was completely exposed, and the retained old red brick forms a unique interface rhythm. Another adjacent space was composed of modern materials such as wood finish and copper-like stainless steel. Naturally divide office and leisure space through the strong contrast between new and old materials, and created a cross-time and space experience in the same space.

Rebirth of Blue Peacock 画龙需点睛，“抓革命，促生产”的标语复位，保存下来的厂房老砖回归，原厂房的拱形混凝土屋面板被重新装回屋顶，在耗时两年的设计施工之后 ，蓝孔雀工业遗存公园已正式重新投入使用。跨越50年时空，历史印迹和现代生活交织在一起。以崭新的姿态回馈社区，融入城市。
The slogan of "catching revolution and promoting production" needed to be repositioned. The preserved old bricks of the factory had returned. The arched concrete roof of the original factory had been reloaded back to the roof. After two years of design and construction, the Blue Peacock Industrial Survival Park has been officially reopened. Beyond 50 years of time and space, historical imprints and modern life are intertwined. Blue Peacock Park gives back to the community in a brand-new way and integrates into the city.△被保留的历史痕迹 | Retained Historical Rudiment△新旧材料的对比 | New and Old materials△南侧鸟瞰 | South Aerial View
