The Kota Kasablanca-located project is a building of 13-unit rented office spaces. This particular project is targeted for small growing companies or branch offices with only 2-5 employees. With a contemporary style and tone, this office building implements black Natural Sungai Wood element combinations on several interior elements such as frames, doors, ceilings, furniture, pantry, wall decorative element and lobby & lounge ceiling. The bright tone of this natural wood is well-blended when combined with clean and clear glass element and the boldness of black color.
The combination makes a well-structured tone composition. The walls and ceilings in lobby and lounge area are decorated with panels made of black checkered pattern where the black color is actually a gap that is not filled with wood panel. The whole arrangement creates a strong image of a café-like atmosphere thus the tenants may have more enjoyable working experience.
Aside from the marriage of wood and black color tone, the designer also places mirrors in the corners of corridors thus making the 230m2 office feels spacious. This extends to the receptionist table to create an illusion of a wide lobby area and an aesthetically unique appearance. On several spots, synthetic trees are installed to psychologically give out a shady impression.
A part from building up the aesthetic aspect, the designer implements a green design space concept in order to allow sunlight entering the innermost room in the office floor plan. This is especially visible in the room with a top clear glass ceiling which allows the sunlight to be dispersed evenly throughout the room. Lastly, the lighting concept adopts a warm atmosphere through the placement of uniformly white-toned lamps which in turn warms up the working environment in the office.
