DORINT is a company focused on developing better door control hardware and contributing to fire and environmental protection. The designer borrows the symbolic image of the main products and applies its features of simplicity, accuracy, order, and details on the construction design. The different-sized squares, tilted planes and lines on the facade can thus tell the values and story of the company to the customers. The subtle minutiae made through precise calculation embody the pursuit of making high-end products and offering great service. Inspired by multiple visual layers of door panels, opening and closing, the designer creates a building with specific details in simplicity. The use of reinforced concrete structure symbolizes purity and simplicity, as well the durability and practicality of the building and products the company produced. The recessed facade with gradual tilting creates ever-changing images of shop windows under light and shadow. Close to the main highway in Changhua county, the ingenious details on the facade can be well appreciated by the cars passing by. In addition, the designer makes sure the interior layout is arranged together with the size of the windows. While considering the exterior appearance, enough space and window installations are also ensured to be sufficient. The repetitive use of similar shapes creates a dynamic energy as if doors were closing and opening. Driving on the highway, one can appreciate the fast-instant image of facades, the novel visual effect of moving doors. In order to emphasize the durability and practicality of the products, the reinforced concrete structure combined with LOW-E glass panels to introduce natural lighting inside and improve insulation for the heat outside. In addition, a great amount of green building material coating is used on the exterior. While offering the texture of stone materials, it also reduces the possible pollution of the actual mining process. Great sized dark grey glass panels for windows are installed in the lower floor on the north side. The building material contrasting with the lighter-color panels, the design creates a lightness for the immense building while putting transparency and opaqueness together side by side.
