The project name takes the same name of a HK movie, which is about chasing dream. For the owner, this name stands for youth, vitality, mutual-aid and dream.
The owner has a strong desire for communication, so he requests that the design style of the whole office space should be communication-encouraging, funny and informal, and he hopes the boundary between working and living within this space to be weakened. Thus, the designer takes container as the design concept, through using industrial elements such as cement, handmade decorative tile, white cement brick and black iron creates an office space full of fun. A wall painting with a big smile warms everybody’s heart and tells everyone to smile to life.
To realize the initial goal of building a stronger community relation within this limited working space, the owner divides the office space into 3 separated working area and a public leisure space and subleases them to a group of young entrepreneurs. The owner meets and gets together with entrepreneurs here, sharing the space, office services and startup ideas, and, together, they form a dynamic and passionate community of entrepreneurs.
This is also a baptism for the post- 80s under the interweaving, swinging and determination of all kinds of desires and limitations of reality.
