Shal SHAL is a mixed-use project, which refurbishing the Shikumen, located in Shanghai, China. Shikumen is one type of historical building with a lot of historical identity. It is a creature that mixed of Western and Chinese culture. Shikumen is only 20% remaining and they are still in danger. The goal of this project is to significantly reduce the living density, create a new living system and lifestyle for new generations, add bathroom, and respect of its own culture while preserving the remaining Shikumen buildings. Shikumen is separated into five parts: streets, gates, alleys, architecture, and courtyard. This project focuses on the alleys and architecture. The new program will include different kinds of living options, such as living, or mixed-use (live and work) units as different options for the consumer. By achieving this goal, three matrixes will be used to create customizable, flexible, and DIYable experience for the future tenants. The alleys are redesigned with the concept of traditional Chinese five elements.

In the street part, designed a small sidewalk for the residents, and created a small green belt with the trees and plants to give the Shikumen more life are the main goals.
The goal of designing the gate is to create a view from the gate that gives a refreshing and attractive scene to make a deep impression to residents and travelers, insitead of original old, messy look with full of clothes hanging on top of the alley.
In order to change the view from the gate, one must redesign the alley. Traditional five elements are the major philosophical theory in Chinese history. Five elements are water, wood fire, earth, and metal. In this theory, each element can create another one, also can destroy another one.
Each sub-alley represents one different element. Using the five elements as concepts to design the alleys according to its color representation, texturing, and Fengshui position.
The new program for this site separates it into four sections, which became for options for different type of persona to choose. The ones around the street will become the mixeduse units, which upstairs is for private use, such as living space, bedrooms, and workout space. The lower level is used for tenants working and social space and kitchen. One community center is located in the center of the site, which exclusively open for the tenants. The community center will have a multi-purpose space on the first level, which can be used for events, movie nights, meetings, and exhibitions. Upstairs will have a small gym and co-working space. Studio and duplex are two living layouts for smaller and bigger families. For all options, tenants can access from both alleys, or from one alley and one street. The circulation created is based on the less is more theory. Keep the main circulation as clean as possible, so that the other program in the space can be open and flexible. Based on different needs, three matrixes will be applied to the program layout. The floor plan is flexible and DIYable.
