The new Mochen Office by Mochen Architects & Engineers

One the Beijing Institute of TV Technology, this 1980’s office building is now the new location of the Mochen office. The building was redesigned and transformed by Mochen Architects & Engineers in 2005. Located in Beijing, China, on Tong Linge Road, south of Beijing Xicheng District, between Chang’an Street and the Xuanwumen West Street, this building sits on a 3396 sqm area.

The surrounding buildings are a chaotic mix of multi-storey residential buildings that date back to the 60s and 70s, high-rise residential apartments built in the late nineties, a large government agency, a church and a vegetable market. You can imagine how different all the styles are and how they look when combined. However, these graduate structures are a part of history and they have been accepted by the locals.

So in the process of renovation, the architects had to be careful not to destroy the original elements and to treat the building like an important section of history. The office is separated by the urban space by a large courtyard that is a sort of transitional space.

The building is a combination of traditional and modern elements, but the predominant style is minimalism, and this applies to the interior space as well. The building is still an important part of the Chinese history and there are several elements that have been preserved and that can sustain this affirmation.{found on archdaily}
