    Remodeling of an abandoned building


08 / 05 / 2015
The iD Town Youth Hotel is located in Shenzhen, China, and occupies a building where before functioned a dorm for the workers of a factory, in a period of industrial prosperity in that area.
In the beginning of the project the team at O-office Architects was faced with an abandoned structure showing signs of degradation. Therefore, it was necessary to make a total intervention on the building and adapt it to its new hotel function.
Existing characteristics of the building were kept such as the cement finishing, found in both the exterior and interior of iD Town. On the façade, frames made of steel amplify the windows in order to provoke a closer connection with the surrounding nature. The common services, such as reception and social areas, function on the ground floor; the dorms and rooms occupy two floors and only suffered small alterations.
