A Balance Between Openness And Privacy

The project is an entire overhaul of a previous office floor. The new plan is consisted of three main parts—lobby in the middle, “the hall” on south and “the lab” on north. Pantry, restrooms and storage are located right next to lobby. Pubic functions are consolidated as much as possible to achieve a clear zoning diagram and minimize the mix of circulation of different user groups.

To get the best balance of openness and privacy, “the hall” is designed to be an open space without enclosed rooms. Several pieces of freestanding wood veneer walls and millworks together shape the gesture of entire hall, creating a clam flowing space. Two “wood box” formed by floor to floor wood veneers walls are the most quite area. The booth area on south with lower screen provides enough privacy for guests, and allows sunlight to come in to the desk. The floating long desk along the window offers option for guests who prefer openness.

Space Layering And The Echo Of Material 


The selection of materials is very important for creating a ceremonial spatial sequence. The rusted iron feature wall and black paint at entry indicate a quite indoor environment. The grey metal panel and neutral wood flooring make a comfortable transition before entering the hall. After stepping the hall, guests would feel relaxed and warm when immersed in wood color. Concrete beams and columns are deliberately exposed to add a fresh touch to the space.
