1. The Nature of Design
The nature of design is to make something out of nothing. The studio space of a designer is the source to thoughts and concepts and a site of imagination. Therefore we design our own studio like the setting for a science fiction movie with a strong sense of prop. The inexhaustible imagination lays out the spatial need.


2. Variations and Expansion in Space

The two units yield multiple compositions and expansions in response to distance characters. The cubic unit is applied on the couch, blanket, and steps, where the cubes covers the multi-dimensions of up and down, left and right. The stereometric layering define the openness of multiple compositions on the first floor, such as the movable lay out of the furniture, the salon area for small lecture and gathering. The transparent door with steel frame connect the inside to outside, implying the interlocking relationship between the two.

The black steel panels form the curvaceous unit. The layering of geometric shapes is distorted and divided like an organic morphology of water bar, information desk, and the long dining table. The working desk on the second floor combines wood joints with steel panels. The structure looks like a butterfly that appears light and heavy at the same time. The symmetric shape facilitates the smooth circulation of workflow.

3. Defining the Work Space
1) The first floor is the lounge. The second floor is the working area. The long table on the center facilitate the discussion. The supporting functions are laid out on the periphery, such as the LED screen, cabinet, printing room, material display room, and library. There is no director’s office. Each employee is free to walk and exchange ideas by their free choice of working area.
2) Work as life: The sense of relaxation is enhanced by the pond and greenery outdoor and the kitchen and dinning table indoor with bamboo panels on the ceiling.

4. The Purity of Material
The use of simple elements such as wood, steel, and artistic paints achieve the purity of the space in this project. It also expresses the central mission of the company: to form the attitude and purity of design through the nature of material.
