Appreciation towards ATMOSPHERE (contact: for providing the following description:



It is extremely important to regard the appearance of architecture as the expression of human nature, because we live to express. ——LouisI.Kahn

The expression of architectural space requires motivation behind it.  For example, at the beginning of the design, “hidden” yourself is the intention of ATMOSPHERE. A full-faced glass wall is built up, and the cold-skinned old city wall stands side by side. The white goose warm stone paves the ground and the hanging device stands in front of the window. The collision of materials and materials creates a harmonious and balanced combination of new and old.

“What is this?” If you see the space door, you have already thought about it and you are curious about the internal world. The design goal has already reached half.

甫一进入空间,大面积黑色的运用,巧妙的将入访者好奇的情绪悄然抚平,光束的投射则将所有目光指引至墙面上Philip Johnson所言。作为第一个普利兹克奖获得者的Philip Johnson,其对空间设计的探索与创新,与不同阶段的创作理念,成为氣象建築的设计引导之一。

Architecture is the art of studying how to waste space—— Philip Johnson

As soon as he entered the space, the use of large areas of black quietly smoothed the curious emotions of the visitors, and the projection of the light beam directed all eyes to the wall. As the first winner of the Pritzker Prize, Philip Johnson’s exploration and innovation of space design and creative ideas at different stages have become one of the design guides of ATMOSPHERE.

Through the 360-degree revolving door, through the black space, the height of the ceiling is subtly changed from low to high, allowing people to feel the “clear and cheerful” shuttle experience in the silent after the “entry”.  From black to white, from dark to bright, the white-covered office area makes people return to a quiet working atmosphere in an instant.

The choice of 3500K color temperature is different from the solemn cold light effect of the regular office space, and is distinguished from the warm and warm yellow with a sense of home. Based on the most comfortable light selection visible to the naked eye, it is just right to focus on the distance between people.

In the almost pure white office space, the colorful colors embellished some of the seriousness that comes from the space attribute of the studio. Perhaps behind every spatial expression motivation is the representation of the designer based on observations of the world. Just like the establishment of the “Observation” in the space. It is through this connection inside and outside the window, in order to create continuous insight and reflection on the external world, diverging the source of infinite thinking.
