Base Fuxing sits on the crossroad of South Xizang Road and East Fuxing Road in Shanghai, between landmarks such as Xintiandi, The Bund or People’s Square. MASS DESIGN transformed a former hotel and commercial development into a mixed used comprising serviced apartments, offices, co-living and commercial spaces. The prominently exposed urban situation, the large size and the mix of very varied functions led to the use of differentiated textures, such as weathered steel, white aluminum or rough plater, different facade compositions from vertical narrow openings to large rectangular ones, in an attempt to respond to the complex situation.
