该项目坐落于伦敦老街，是Sam Jacob Studio为Takram 东京总部打造的伦敦办公室。设计理念旨在创造一个灵活的空间，以适应其从产品数字设计到实体制作阶段中的各个工作模式。作为设计工作室改造项目，Sam Jacob Studio团队用一种原始而又精致的手法，清晰地展示出室内空间的每个组成部分。通过保留设计深化中决策与组合的痕迹，使项目本身成为设计思路与设计过程的体现。
Sam Jacob Studio have completed the design of new office space for Takram in London’s Old Street. As the London studio for the Tokyo-HQed design innovation studio the aim was to create a flexible space accommodating the breadth of their working modes from digital to physical making. As the home of a design studio, the approach was to create a raw yet refined atmosphere, a space where each of the components of the space is articulated. By making the decisions and assembly visible in the project’s finished state it retains a sensation of the design process and thinking.

The design developed a rich mix of materials. Industrial materials like cement board are set next to marble panels, cast concrete objects are used alongside chunks of timber. These are brought together to create a language of contrasting materials with different values, texture, finish and reference. Rather than resolving into a single aesthetic, the pallet feels more like a designers material library, where unexpected juxtapositions occur through cataloguing.

This variety is held together by frameworks and armatures that give the space its structure. Powder coated steel frames are used to create the skeleton of the kitchen / workshop space, with appliances, panelling, cupboards and storage simply slotted in. The same powder coated frames are used to create the specially designed furniture including a long central table for the office. Panels of marble, plywood and cement board are dropped into these simple frames to create table tops.

New partitions and shelving are created through assembling materials in a series of ‘stacks’ and ‘piles’. White horizontal planks are supported by a series of objects and material fragments. O’s and X’s cast in concrete, orange tinted acrylic tubes, sections of silver birch tree, reflective chromed pipe, even stacks of material offcuts salvaged from the process of fabrication are used to create the stacked structures. It’s a system that learns from the most basic ways of placing one material on top of another. The process of assembly creates the formal arrangement. Shelves are created by the act of putting things on a shelf.

Sam Jacob said: “It’s always great to work with clients who themselves are designers. Takram work in a very different field but our discussions were very fluid and inspiring. We wanted to articulate something of the process of design through the project, a place where the practicalities of project making become inspiring and unexpected.

Yosuke Ushigome from Takram said: “As an international design studio, we value ‘collective openness’ and celebrate different viewpoints and skillsets – we wanted to reflect this into space through material usage. With Sam’s interpretation and design work, our studio now doesn’t only represent how we work in a down-to-earth manner, but also gives us inspiration and surprises.”
