With this more spontaneous use of space, the headquarters of traditional businesses can fully demonstrate their international perspective and vision. The designer has rearranged the space planning, and added more diverse textures and unique elements. The entire office space has been given a new life with more personality and the touch of nature.
Break Through the Frame to Where Tradition and Novelty Collide Zhou You Hao, the director of LH Interior Design, mentioned that the biggest challenge of this case was breaking up the original space and matching the interior textures. From dismantling office partitions to rearranging the entire facilities for this nearly 35 square foot space. This project can be considered rather tremendous, up to a dozen of textures including stone and quartz intertwine with the designing details, creating a diverse yet harmonized atmosphere.
The polish marble floor and the silver fox stone wall formed the outstanding lobby while retaining the spirit of minimalism. The showcase at the end of the hall reveals the company’s glory and honor to the guests without reservation. However, the trophies in the showcase will not be the only focus for the guests. With the see-through glass wall of the showcase, the guests can directly look into the protagonist of this project– The International Conference Hall, expanding the visual effect and space into the next level.
After the rearrangement for the office space, the conference room is expanded and furnished with nonstationary Audio/Visual equipment and soundproof mobile partition wall. The mobile partition wall can divide the conference room into two in a more flexible way. Both side of the partition wall are made from grey back painted glasses, giving out the expanding effect for space through the reflection. The interior design uses details such as the product showcase, electric curtains, and lighting that imitates the stage light, to create an international conference room of modernity.
Embrace the Nature to Ease the Working StressWe also added a new half outdoor courtyard, a tasteful bar section, a lounge, and a meeting area. We used roller blinds to soften the natural light and introduce it to the entire space. There are also lift top tables near the windows. As for the tree pattern on the main wall, some parts of the pattern used the hollow design to allow natural light to shine through. The other parts are installed with the reflecting grey glass, creating this illusional dimension for the bar section. The wall is embedded with Iceland moss. We asked the carpenters to crop the proper templates and ship them to Germany, then the factory would place the moss onto the templates and number them. After being sent back to Taiwan, we could install and fasten the walls' templates by ourselves. This type of green building materials can be evergreen without irrigation. We used unique stucco to paint the main wall, then created the tree-like texture with scrapers to match the Iceland moss. This area is originally built to be a courtyard café with a relaxing green space atmosphere. With the diverse interior design, it can also be the perfect place for various events such as product presentations and press conferences.
The main wall's slope penetrates the courtyard section, magnifying the actual space with optical illusion to emphasize the CEO office on the other side. The matte golden painted glass partition and the electric curtains light up the room, while they resonate with the idea of co-prosperity between the employer and employees. The vast wine goblet-shaped entrance symbolizes the quality of confidence and embracement. The back area is designed as an exhibition room for the company's history. Its existence is for showing the founder's spiritual support for the personnel and expressing the admiration and the forever remembrance. The entire design can be seen as a metaphor for visionary, advance, and holistic perspective—a metaphor that is based on the idea of always remembering one's root.
