In the rapidly evolving world of fashion, the need for sustainable practices has become increasingly important. This architectural concept aims to address the requirements of a large open layout for flexible production, thermal efficiency through the implementation of a Green Screen, engaging workers through the plantation, and incorporating a folded roof design for iconic aesthetics and enhanced thermal comfort. The foundation of this architectural concept lies in the creation of a large, open layout within the factory. By incorporating a flexible layout, the design allows for easy adaptation to different production requirements. This versatility provides the garment factory with the ability to reconfigure its space as needed, accommodating various production lines, machinery, and workflow processes efficiently.
To enhance the thermal efficiency of the factory, a Green Screen is strategically positioned on the west side of the building. This innovative feature acts as a shield, reducing the direct impact of sunlight on the interior spaces. Additionally, the Green Screen creates a pleasant visual environment, enhancing the overall well-being of workers within the factory.
Recognizing the importance of workers' well-being and engagement, the architectural design incorporates green spaces throughout the factory. Plantation areas are carefully integrated, providing workers with opportunities to interact with nature during their breaks. These green spaces not only contribute to the aesthetic appeal of the factory but also promote a sense of tranquility and rejuvenation, ultimately enhancing workers' productivity and satisfaction.
Further, the elegant shape of dove wings served as inspiration for the factory's roof design. This iconic roof design not only creates a visually striking landmark but also serves a functional purpose. The folded roof design allows for varying heights throughout the factory, enabling hot air to rise and escape, thus promoting natural ventilation and thermal comfort. By utilizing natural airflow, the factory reduces its reliance on mechanical cooling systems, resulting in significant energy savings.
