Project Overview

The objective of this project is to plan and design a shoe manufacturing factory that is not only functional but also provides a high-quality, comfortable, and humane working environment for the employees. The factory will consist of an office, dormitory, and factory space, all designed by the core values of the shoe manufacturing industry, namely "strict control, excellence, environmental sustainability, and social friendliness".

Project Brief

The owner's corporate philosophy will form the basis of the planning process, ensuring that the design reflects the enterprise's values and environmental sustainability goals. The spatial environment will be designed to positively impact the employees' physical and mental well-being, thus enhancing their productivity and job satisfaction. In this way, the project aims to promote a harmonious coexistence between the enterprise, society, and the environment, ensuring that the factory's operation does not negatively impact the environment or the local community. The result will be a factory that meets the functional requirements and promotes corporate responsibility, commercial value, and environmental preservation.

Project Innovation/Need

The building's exterior design reflects the company's "foamed soles" product line. Inside, the color scheme is based on the corporate color "blue," and the primary style is a simple industrial style that is currently popular. This design approach successfully showcases the company's product elements, core spirit, and fashionable taste. To ensure a comfortable and cool environment inside the factory, the design team introduced negative-pressure ventilation. This system utilizes exhaust fans and extractors to discharge indoor humidity, heat, and pollutants outside the factory and maintain indoor air quality. Compared with ordinary factories, the negative pressure ventilation system can lower the factory temperature by 5-10 degrees. This project has been tested and proved to effectively improve the working environment and reduce the labor intensity of workers, ultimately enhancing work efficiency.

Design Challenge

As you step into the lobby, you will be greeted by the grandeur of the high ceilings and the sleek linear design immediately catches your eye, creating an elegant and inviting atmosphere. The open layout of the office space is designed to expand the area, encouraging interaction and communication among colleagues, thus fostering an environment that stimulates creativity and innovation. The exhibition room is an exquisite sight to behold, with large display cabinets and hole panels combined with the suspension design, creating a breathtaking visual experience that is both awe-inspiring and lightweight. The dormitory lobby is no less impressive, featuring an array of social spaces, including bars and round tables, carefully crafted to cater to the preferences and needs of modern people, making it an ideal place to unwind and relax, no matter what the situation may be.


The design of this factory not only prioritizes aesthetics and functionality but also emphasizes environmental protection and sustainable development. It is the first LEED-certified factory in the zone. All areas are equipped with external windows to allow natural light in and provide ventilation, thus reducing the need for artificial lighting and air conditioning. High-power LED lighting is installed throughout the factory to reduce power consumption and achieve energy-saving and carbon-reducing effects. The wall coating is made of insulation paint, which is non-toxic, waterproof, mildew-resistant, and weather-resistant. It also effectively reduces heat transfer, maintaining a cool and comfortable environment without the use of air conditioning. By adopting these eco-friendly measures, we aim to create a high-quality, comfortable, healthy, and sustainable working environment for future generations.
