Colonial-type mansions, villas, the production department of a former motor factory and some Shikumen buildings constitute a group of industrial heritage with a history over half a century. Now, this 22,000 m2 region is renovated into 800 Show Creative Park. The dominant 120 long factory hall is turned into a huge show room preserving its ornate wooden roof/beam structure. Villas and office buildings are completely surrounded by a blend of high-rises and Shikumen buildings. Each building is renovated with designs highlighting the individuality of its original construction that people can get close to the unique urban fabric of Shanghai. Glass curtain is used to open a visual channel on Changde Road. Centered on the need of a rapidly growing creative class, 800 Show is combined with inter-related usages including office, leisure, fashion shows, and outdoor space for events.
