In this facility, a prototype can be produced unlike a traditional showroom which customer could only choose from those that is already available, which might not check all the boxes in their mind. That is the reason why the architecture itself need to convey sense of future, promote imagination and idea, and also innovation inducing, and accommodates every group of user and support teamwork.

  1. Project’s main structure

i2P Center consists of 2 parts, i2P (Idea to Product) in the front and ADC (Application Development Center) in the back. All products to be produced in this project will mainly be made of plastic. Starting from i2P, majority of activities in this zone would be a cooperation with customer to innovate, design, and develop product that truly answer to their need (make idea). Then carry on to ADC part where a prototype is made according to information from i2P (make product) and develop further to meet the large scale of production.

Although the i2P project is in Industrial estate, but the site is not far from the east perimeter that connects with a local community nearby. Therefore, a design with environmental concern is crucial.
