Appreciation towards Imago Architecture design Consultant for providing the following description: 



This is an 2000㎡ interior design project for a magazine office. In consideration for the programmatic practicality, the open office area was arranged in the outer area, close to natural sunlight. This leaves the circulation in the centre, next to the building core. The circulation corridor, which connects the scattered periferal conference rooms and leisure spaces, is also the main focus of our design.

The design uses four specific tones of coloured glass panels; red, yellow, blue, and green, in order to distinguish the different meeting areas. Each coloured section then contains dozens of delicate colour differences. In total, the panels use 54 different colours. The coloured panels also form a complete loop around the main corridor.

As the sunlight shines through the windows, it picks up the vast colours from the panels and splashes them upon the floors and walls. The design of the carpet also aims to enhance the colour pallet of the light through the use of a mosaic of 609mm x 609mm tiles, altogether containing 37 different colours in order to simulate the chromatic nature of the sunlight flowing through the glass panels. Together, they would instill the inhabitant with a sense of super-realism.

As for the corridor wall, we used white tiles to maintain uniformity in the space. Because of the reflective parameters of the tile material, light transmitted through the coloured glass panel is mirrored upon hitting the white tiles, dispersing out like watercolour on paper. Furthermore, considering of the depth of the office, the white tiles can also reflect light, making the open office space brighter.

In the design, we employed natural light to affect the interior space. Through the ever changing angle and direction of the sunlight, the color and light intensity also changes. The result is an interior space that transforms from winter to summer, night to day, and from cloudy to sunny days. Actually, every interior space changes according to the sunlight, but what we did was enhancing this transformation and making it more dramatic.
