Casper Auto Garage: “Super Auto Club”born in an abandoned old factory

DUTS Design has recently completed the renovation project of a "Super Garage". This is an abandoned old factory building in Nanhui district of Shanghai, with a construction area of about 900 square meters. After being renovated, it became a "super garage", including a car modification factory, a sports car museum, an ecological leisure and entertainment area, and a more private office and social club area.

The project is located in Nanhui District, a suburb of Shanghai. It is an old factory built in the last century. The owner is a JDM fan and an amateur racer. He likes automobile racing culture as well as car modification. When he saw this abandoned old factory building, he had the idea of creating a top-level "private garage" of his own. In a space around 900 square meters, designers need to consider installing a car tuning factory with professional equipment, a world-class supercar showroom, a member space that meets business and leisure needs, and the owner’s own office and Living space.Infinite imagination still starts from the core "Automobile". Using the longest "diagonal line" in the rectangular space of the old factory building, the designers of DUTS created a "sharp slash" like a racing car passing by, making the division of space echo the speed of a speeding car.

After the old factory was abandoned, there was still a huge honing car. When the designers of DUTS design saw this space, the first inspiration was "we can create a flying house that can be moved". Although this crazy idea was cancelled in the end due to safety hazards, but the design idea of "creating the experience of flying house" for the people in the space is still retained.

After continuous space deduction, based on the unique floor height conditions of the old factory building(9m), the designers of DUTS design used the structural reinforcement of the old factory building to reshape the spatial form. The designer smartly used the structural form of the overhead floor to create and realize a perfect floorplan with multiple functions and the natural transformation of different scenes.

The designer created an overhead, pure "floating house" in this industrial factory. The mezzanine area on the second floor is a more private life and social scene for the owner, while under the overhead area on the first floor, it is a more open dream paradise for people who love super cars.
