该项目位于上海市闵行区七宝万科国际;我们希望工作室足够轻松、温性、创意,于是通过显性与隐性的符号对我们的目标进行构建;空间用了大量温暖的木色,并组成木质的空间体块,这些体块以整个白色空间为背景,进行功能与空间节奏上的构筑;有的形成斜线——楼梯;有的形成直线——地台;有的成为网格——书架;但是又连为一体,与空间相融;有了一个富有韵律的空间构筑物后,就是一些吸睛的柔性元素介入。所以——牛,上天了; 树,栽桌子上了; 猴子,挂在书柜边…这些无厘头的元素一方面均衡的软化整个空间,另一方面让我们在忙碌时候,大开脑洞。工作之余,一抬头,会心一笑,累的时候,一杯咖啡,坐在窗边放飞一下自我。

The project is located in Minhang District, Shanghai Qibao Vanke International. We hope that the studio is relaxed, warm and creative enough, and then constructs our goal through explicit and implicit symbols. The space uses a large amount of warm wood color and forms a wooden space block which takes the whole white space as the background to construct the function and space rhythm. Some form slashes – stairs; Some form a straight line – the platform; Some become grid – bookshelf; But even as one, and the integration of space. With a rhythmic space structure, there are a few eye-catching, flexible elements involved. So, cattle fly to heaven; Tree, planted on the table; Monkey, hanging in the bookcase. On the one hand, these irregular elements soften the entire space. On the other hand, when we are busy, we open our brains, spare time, look up, smile, tired, a cup of coffee, sit by the window to fly about self.

▼牛都上天了,你呢,要往哪里去?cattle flies to heaven, you, where to go

▼阳光洒进来,我们在这里工作,有树还有牛,sunshine sprinkled in, we work here, there are trees and cattle

▼移动黑板,随时记录我们的灵感,move the blackboard and keep track of our inspiration\


The combination of the desk and the tree has become the interior landscape of the entire space and also forms an echo with the green outside to reduce the tension in the office. The entire wall of the shelves are unwillingly boring, in a practical framework, resulting in a wave of fluctuations, like a cliff, as the slope. The elevation of the landscape in the space is maximized, allowing the original window to have a floor-to-ceiling window feeling, a better view of the landscape, and a greater degree of change and fragmentation, all while making the space more enjoyable.

Each element of the space that wishes to satisfy its function is itself a symbol, so the door becomes a block of wood, which is hidden in the rules, with flat symbols, to make the wall fun.

▼小办公室,small office

▼空间的每个元素都参与美与乐趣的构筑,every element of space is involved in the construction of beauty and fun

▼喝茶小憩,扯扯人生,drink tea and have a rest

Due to the restrictions of the floor, the meeting room feel more depressed, so the entire ceiling into a mirror, to resolve the limitations of the storey, but also a sense of space unique style.But the air conditioning diffuser is very loud, air conditioning determines the outlet The location can not move.While the market can not find a suitable symbolic alternatives, so, to take advantage of the situation, the conference room lighting to the diffuser as the center of the layout, so that the diffuser box and lighting Echoes, forming a meeting room interesting graphics.

▼会议室,meeting room

▼回路,盘旋在会议室上空,loop, circling over the conference room


At the same time, we wanted to have a unique conference table, but the extremely functional nature of the conference table made it difficult to make changes, so that the shape defects of the conference room space became the starting point for this desk idea. Due to the avoidance of the entrance porch, There is a corner of the space is cut off, the wall is placed diagonally, if it is rectangular conference table, it is inevitable in the oblique wall caused by the use of space is not enough defects, can not sit .So there was a parallelogram conference table, The hypotenuse is parallel to the sloping wall in the space, allowing the entire space in front of the sloping wall to sit under one participant, embedding some grass and a unique and functional conference table.

▼大办公桌,large office table


Function into the fun and creativity, the two air-conditioning return air holes can not let go, the market for the practical and completely jacketed not integrated into the environment due to the ceiling also belong to the wooden body block, so after testing, a full of gradient lattice Graphics, to solve this problem, different specifications of the hole into the well-placed and open hole, so that space returns to pure and fun.
