The main business of GST is to manufacture and assemble semiconductor, Icd, medical appliance and electronic device. GST choice the new material for the factory building. Furthermore, the building is designed to present beauty of sculpture and symbolic language to emphasize the company and its environment-friendliness in terms of selecting Danpalon as material of Façade
A distribution oriented line up: Considering the easy access for shipment, the working area is located on the 1st and 2nd floor to facilitate the flow of working. So it enables to do stocking, assembling, testing, and shipping products on the ground floor. Employee parking lot is on the 3rd floor (top floor).
Environment-friendly material for façade, Danpalon: Danpalon, which is a semi-transparent polycarbonate system made of 6 layered panels, can maximize daylighting effect by spreading light through diffused reflection under the daylight and save energy by decreasing the amount of CO2 produced by artificial lighting. With its excellent quality and amount of lights, it doesn’t create shadows inside from the structure as it provides even diffused light instead of direct light so productivity and safety of employees can be maximized. After sunset, the light inside of extension building is spread outside creating the image wall representing GST so it gives symbolism to building on Dongtan industrial complex 6gil as a lighting box.
Communication and connecting spaces: It is planned to connect existing building and extension building by using a bridge as a medium.
External space: Cooperative company area and reception area are separated while exit and entrance are combined to unify them as one building.
Based on our experience in building extension plant of GST, we would like to make a new design guide (Danpalon) for building a new plant considering environment-friendliness, convenient construction, light structure and various lighting by studying interior as well as exterior space design.
