This project is situated in a boutique office building at the fast-growing redevelopment zone of New Taipei city. As a hidden gem and multi-functional hub in concrete jungles, the plan complies with spatial utility, regarding both privacy and intimacy, artistic and pragmatic mingling with oriental undertones. Black, seen from the flooring massively paved in marbles, is a symbol of water in Chinese ‘wuxing’ philosophy, which brings flows of universe energy and gathers fortunes. Flows of marble veins permeate philosophical connotations throughout spaces. The interior space influences both moods and behavior. With less than 100 square meter, the plan is subdivided into meeting rooms and an open lounge, comprising multifunction for both social connection and business diversity without cluttered feeling. Backdrops paved with marbles in deep colors, delineated with gold trims and illuminated warmth. While marbles and wood-veneerings are successively paved from flooring to elevation, entrance screens are swivel and directionally changeable, mingling with materials of glass, metals, stones, woods, and forms of arc, creating an informal yet upscale oriental vibe. To maximize the use of space, the layout excludes walls as possible. The flooring color segments the front section and inner areas; afterwards, the glass screen subdivides the space into office, meeting room, and open-concept lounge, blurring boundaries between areas. Curved transparent cubicles expand spacious visuality, soothing nerves and stress during meetings, fulfilling both privacy and intimacy, artistic and pragmatic.
