Dotel is a co-working space in New Taipei city, where the site was an idle dyeing-and-weaving factory. After overhauling, the exterior remains its textured heritage, resonant with the productive old days; whereas the interior transforms into a creative public place, encompassing multifunctional areas: office, coffee stations, life house...etc, to cater for an unknown assemblage of lessees and space users. Unlike most office layouts, this workplace is compartmentalized by glass screens and cubicles instead of walls, which is flexible for motley activities, and allows secrecy to specific crews.
