Entrance & Reception

As the institution places itself in the office space with a tight area, the space is arranged in the most efficient way and as open-space as possible. With programmes provided, it was almost not possible to allow empty space quality. We selected what could be open space programme to be placed in the middle. The most interesting yet operable is the catwalk space, not only it is unique but also connecting the two corridor wings to create bigger space for other occasion. The different colour identifies each room according to its function. The freshness starts from the entrance door by introducing the wavy random wooden boxes celebration on the reception desk. The bright wood colour is contrasted by the dark back wall. To introduce an interesting waiting room, the pattern continues to create a feature wall with racks composition.
