Office Space Planning
With designed in mind to meet customer’s briefings, this office was designed with a simple and clean space planning in mind.
As a service oriented company, frequent meeting activities has been carried out daily basis for various projects. Thus, a large and premium meeting room has made to be the most prominent room within the office space.
This meeting room was placed against existing windows to ensure proper lighting brightness ambiance with mixture of natural sun light and artificial lighting scheme.
Office partitions have been carefully thought with introduction of both full height clear glass panels and solid timber partitions to dedicated walls.
Full height white board cabinet been used as space divider between Reception and Meeting Room. Each side of this cabinet provide unique functional usages, one as reception feature wall and with opposite side treated as white board and storage cabinets for meeting room. This helped to maximize space usage of available office area and also keep privacy of meeting room activities intact from office visitors.
Clear glass panels on the other hand encourage internal office interactions among different rooms while minimize the sense of tightness to the small office space.
Reception Identity Design
Reception counter and feature wall backdrop has been shaped with dedicated chamfered edging profile. This kept the walkway unobstructed while giving visual directional clues to guide visitors walking into office space after entering from office main door.
This triangular chamfered profile has become a main design elements for the reception areas. We applied the same triangular details to the ceiling and stainless steel wall panelings along the reception area.
This will create design identity and impression to the visitors and enhance space playfulness that can encourage staff working spirits virtually.
Meeting Room Design Approach
While keeping main color scheme throughout the office interior fresh whitish and bright as requested by the client. We introduced darker red color into the Meeting Room as main accents color.
This help to emphasize the prominent role of meeting room among office spaces while keep the overall office color scheme interesting and unique.
Black leather textural lamination and dark red solid timber edging have been selected for the center meeting table. This further enhance the uniqueness of the meeting room design and differentiated it to other office areas.
Full white board glass panelings were placed on both side walls of the meeting room. While providing a convenient space for ideas sketching and brainstorming functions during meeting sessions, these white board glass panelings also made meeting room felt larger due to their natural 3 dimensional reflective effects.
Office Floor Material Selections
Different floor materials been selected for reception, general office areas, manager room and meeting room to identify different functional working zones.
While keeping the color range of these carpets and porcelain tiles within matching mono grey tones, darker grey tone was selected for meeting room while lighter grey tones applied for other areas to increase interesting color zoning among each office areas.
