The owner of this case is an art-loving collector who advocates a more open and casual working environment. The designer therefore extracts the spirit of “Chip Best” and amps it up with the ambience of art gallery and boutique. A collaborative workplace that is both tasteful and full of character is born.
The linear design at the entrance symbolizes products of the company, running through the office area like a circuit board. Through the indication of the design, visitors are spontaneously led to the display section where the trophies symbolize the team work spirit of the company. The overall white and sleek space along with the dark wooden colors from the pantry create a visual tension. With the contrast of materials and textures, more layers are added to the space, and different section of the office are framed without traditional separation walls. The tawny mirror, the glass and the indirect lightings make the space more and spacious. The designer manages to keep the space open while reserve some privacy, creating a generous yet delicate office atmosphere.
Instead of traditional light steel joist ceiling for office space, dropped ceiling is applied in this project. The smooth wooden curve frames the office area and connects it to rest of the space. The overall fluidity sets up the emotional transition from work to relax. The semi-transparent design, combined with sufficient lightings, glass and linear designs, builds a more comfortable environment for the workers to communicate and collaborate. The self-contained lounge room offers a place to relax and hang out with co-workers. With some space to set their mind free from work, the office environment strengthens the teamwork spirit.
This project is infused with the essence of the corporate culture and the product images. The smooth flow, the layering lights and the surprising applications of textures and shapes altogether build a novel office that is different and novel. Workers now have more chances to communicate with their coworkers and get to know each other better.
