The Verdant Office

The project aims to revamp the existing office building and provide proper storage. Therefore, the original space was physically divided into the entrance foyer, pantry and office space. A mezzanine floor was then introduced at the entrance to blur the line of the three areas. With such an open plan and no physical partition, users have a proper storage space, filing storage and server.

The company specialises in stretch membrane, an architectural paper and fabric material used to create sculptural ceilings and lightings designs. They also research and build unique 3D sculptures according to designers’ requirements. With this in mind, the designers adopted an ‘in-progress’ concept. They show the sculptural structures and details in the design to create a discussion point with clients. These details include a cluster of hanging lights at the double volume space, whose raw frames were deliberately exposed and the finishing was half complete.

The curved table provides flexibility as each user can face different directions—private yet promoting communication. Compared to the square table, this option is also more suitable for physical distancing because users will not have to face their colleagues directly. On the west side of the window, the designers created a metal mesh for creepers to grow as a screen from the direct sun. Small plants with ease of maintenance were selected for the indoor space. As the reuse and recycling of raw materials were emphasized, the scaffold was made of old wood with no coating or finishes, and the shelving used natural plywood.
