CHY Architects’ Main Office

The project highlights the use of muted materials with monochromatic finishes so that the forms will become the centre of attention. Function-wise, the particular emphasis is on creating a diverse and dynamic landscape of spaces that will extend beyond working formalities.

The double-volume space provides a sense of vastness. Cosiness is enthused with the help of a soft palette and the curved lines that form dynamic pockets of spaces. There is a clear distinction between communal areas and private individual work desks by the use of timber colours—lighter gradient for the lobby, meeting rooms and amphitheatre; and darker colours for the private desks at the working spaces. The irregular nature of the layout and the non-linear desk spaces give the office a strong sense of eclecticism.
