The Shanghai-based office of international firm Playze continue their commitment to sustainability with “Tony’s clubhouse,” a showroom and restaurant space that reuses an unclaimed pavilion, exemplifying a shared vision between client and architect - promoting a natural lifestyle.
Located in the burgeoning financial district of Lujiazui, the new club house takes advantage of a building constructed for the Pudong landscape masterplan. With no particular program in mind, the edifice sat unused for decades. Having fallen into disrepair, it was in need of a proven occupant.
Playze and Tony’s have already successfully shown that consumers, farm production and the built environment need not be separate entities with ‘Tony’s Farm.” Thus, the extension of the program became established by one of Shanghai’s largest organic farms, Fit. (Designboom)
