5Lmeet is located in the third section of Xingye Street, Daxing District, near Huangcun Railway Station. The area is 8600m² , and the whole building consists of six floors, with five floors aboveground and one floor underground. It was a vacant community supporting commercial before the renovation. “Sharing” is a representative keyword that was born in this era. From the concept of co-working to co-living, it gradually becomes an advocate of the latest lifestyle. The powerful energy brought by the new lifestyle has broken through the traditional business model. The project is designed to transform the old community supporting commercial into one-stop co-living community, which is a combination of business formats include office, apartment and commercial to create a richer shared life experience scene.

在此次项目的设计过程中，设计师以co-living的生活方式为灵感打造了一个新的语汇——“共享站COMMUNION STATION”，尝试在两种功能空间的交界处设置一种新的混搭空间， 这个空间在功能上可以同时满足两个主功能区所需要的服务社交功能；在空间上成为整体设计上的重点；同时又解决了空间效率的问题。
Regarding the design concept of this project, designers are inspired by the shared lifestyle and create a new vocabulary-“communion station.”They attempt to set up a new complex space at the junction of the two functional spaces, and this space can simultaneously satisfy the social functions of the services required by the two main functional areas. The new space not only becomes the focus of the design, but gives the solution of space efficiency.

The communion station is presented in an independent space. The designers utilize the flexible design at the junction of office, apartment and business at each level. The spaces of the ground floor and the first floor are connected to create a flexible public event space that meets the functions of roadshows, lectures, and various social events.The third floor includes reception area, bar area and small theater. The fourth floor includes supermarket and Chinese kitchen, and the fifth floor includes gym, laundry and kitchen. The design of the communion station makes the space level more diverse and functional, and more importantly, it provides more opportunities for people to exchange and interact with each other and thus experience the enjoyment of sharing lifestyle.

The design language uses color linear elements throughout the space to satisfy the functionality as well as achieving a uniform visual effect. The space has been simplified designed as a white canvas.From partitions to wall patterns, these bright colored lines are like beating notes on the paper, enhancing the three-dimensional visual effect and vibrant atmosphere of the space. The design elements are used repeatedly to create a unique co-living space environment with vivid memory.

Apartment：There always have something special in everyone’s residence. It can reflect resident’s preferences, experiences and attitudes from color of the space to the detail of the accessories. Therefore, designers believe highlighting the character of the room and applying humanized design in a limited space is the key to creating a co-living space in this project. For the design concept of the apartment, designers created two themes-films and famous paintings, and designed two main types of layout for the rooms( excluding those special layouts formed due to the special structure of the building). There are six color schemes to match the space, which are drawn from different films and paintings. By giving the space six characteristics, the color schemes make the apartment more personalized and recognized, and also provide more choices for the occupants.
