atelier deshaus has realized a RD office and manufacturing facility in anting, an automotive industry center in jiangding district, shanghai. four levels tall with an area of 36,600m2, the complex is organized by a central courtyard that brings natural light into its depths. at ground level, enclosed units with glass brick walls serve as garage facilities for vehicles. both sides of the structure are comprised of various small volumes that function as office spaces.
