Biotechnology Standard Factory, Hsinchu Science Park
Located at 3E District of Hsinchu Biomedical Science Park, this new biotech building comprises a total of 6 floors above ground and 1 underground level.
On the ground floor, there are six units for different uses, including the Science Park Administration office, a restaurant, a bank, a post office and two standard workshops; on the second floor above, there are a total of thirty standard fab units, twenty units of 660m2 and ten units of 330m2; in the single level underground garage which also doubles as an air-raid shelter, there is parking for 143 cars and 130 scooters.
In order to facilitate movements, the circulation design corresponds with the road capacity- the main circulation path faces the 20m road and the pedestrian and parking circulation faces the 12m road. With the greenbelts and open spaces around, the biotech building in the existing surrounding area works in harmony and connects to the adjacent existing temple and the central greenbelt of the park.
As a pioneer of the nation’s bio-medical industry, this new standard factory fulfills three design objectives:
- Modular flexibility: to accommodate multifarious industries, the project adopts modular design and separation of pedestrian circulation and goods movement.
- Adaptable and expandable space: a more flexible floor plan and expandable structure are designed to make maximum use of vertical and horizontal spaces.
- Resource Integration: the related service equipment is all integrated and concentrated in several circulation cores to facilitate the mobility of technical support.
The elevation concept is derived from the DNA double helix. Such metaphor is reflective of the building’s biotechnology mission. Through design articulation, the continuation of a DNA strand is shown in all aspects of the building such as the architectural configuration, building form and landscape, thus achieving a distinctive intriguing visual effect.
