Free flowing bricks

In a previous life, this Shanghai warehouse was used to store fabric. Now, having received a makeover courtesy of Archi-Union Architects, the building retains its fabric-like contours and waves, only this time, that flow has been applied to the exterior of the building, created by angling hollow bricks in different ways. 

In its new incarnation, the 1,200 sq m space is home to an artist complex, featuring an exhibition hall and studio. The interior of the building mixes the old with the new, retaining some of the old brick work and mixing it up with some funky contemporary furniture.
