Floor space: 32,000 m2
Building: former Shanghai Municipal Council Slaughterhouse
The 1933 Old Millfun used to be the Shanghai Municipal Council Slaughterhouse. It was finished in 1933 and designed by British architecture master Balfours, with the fame as the “largest slaughterhouse in Far East”. It was built in cool European style with the Basilican elements, making a perfect matching of the modern architecture art with the processing requirements. The whole building presents a peculiar layout and artistic space that is square in the outside and round in the inside, with winding passages and randomly scattered rooms. Though looking like a maze, the whole place is designed in clear order. After 76 years, the building is still well preserved as the “Hongkou District Historical Heritage” and “Good Historical Building” in Shanghai.
After the complete renovation and creation, the 1933 Old Millfun presents a brand new look, integrating the functions of “information release, exhibition, exchange and business”. Many international brands held their promotion events here, and a number of well-known enterprises have moved in. In July 2009, “Window of Creative in Shanghai” was formally launched in 1933 Old Millfun as the first public service platform for the exhibition, publicity, evaluation and trade of local original design products.
