Inside Out Art Center

Beijing China

Atelier 11 Architects

cultural facility in beijing, china. consisting of studios, lofts, exhibition centers. The project is built within the existing structure of an old factory. enovated in multiple stages, the architects aimed to preserve as much of the original elements as possible. a large portion of the dark brick envelop was kept intact while  the steel framing was exposed on the interior as both structural and aesthetic elements.

A sculptural addition to the north serves as an external passage way shaped as a zigzag that connects the sales office to the multi-functional art center. an elevated catwalk connects the museum to a public pathway beyond the park, allowing visitors to experience the approach from a different advantage point.
