Curio Stair of Encounters – Bloomberg Hong Kong Office in China by Neri&Hu Design and Research Office

Thursday, November 3rd, 2016

Article source: Neri&Hu Design and Research Office

Ordinary things contain the deepest mysteries… If anything is described by an architectural plan, it is the nature of human relationships, since the elements whose trace it records – walls, doors, windows and stairs – are employed first to divide and then selectively to re-unite inhabited space.

Robin Evans’ 1978 essay Figures, Doors and Passages analyzes how ordinary elements of a plan and their arrangements interact and shape occupancy. A simple corner or window opening is in fact inscribed with a complex matrix of spatial relationships that determine how a space is used. Neri&Hu’s design for Bloomberg Hong Kong’s internal office stair is in part inspired by the mundane elements of space-making – windows, passages, staircases and thresholds. The client’s brief was to design a staircase to connect the 3 different floors of their office with the explicit rule that this stair should to be used daily as the only vertical connection within the office to encourage employee interaction. Part of the brief was to also create a design that would respond to the locale of Hong Kong to create a link to the larger context of the city. The site is situated in the client’s existing office, within a typical office tower and surrounded by existing conference rooms, break-out areas, a recording studio and an auditorium. The existing spiral staircase was sculpturally iconic but the geometry was not conducive for the daily high traffic volume. Our challenge was re-design a staircase that would work within the structural limitations of the knock-out panels in the floor slab, while still creating a more spacious journey.

Micro Apartments – Rooms by the Sea in Kwai Chung, Hong Kong by Bean Buro

Tuesday, June 21st, 2016

Article source: Bean Buro

Bean Buro has poetically created a series of 240sqft (22.2sqm) micro apartments in Kwai Chung Hong Kong as part of a residential development roll out.

Inspired by the surrealist painter Edward Hopper, the effect is a transitory space that simultaneously reflects the external dynamic lifestyles of Hong Kong urban dwellers while creating a calm internal environment. The aim was to create a space for one to reflect inner life and feelings by being able to personalise the space with sentimental person objects. Similar to Hopper’s famous painting Rooms by the Sea, Bean Buro’s canvas paintings depicts natural sunlight captured and the internal space is more an evocative metaphor of silence and solitude than the transcription of an actual scene.

Tuesday, June 14th, 2016

Article source: MVRDV

MVRDV have opened the 133 Wai Yip Street in Hong Kong. An office transformation, with retail and restaurants, which strips an old industrial building down to its bare bones and uses only glass with stainless steel infill to build up the interior spaces. The 18.000m2  project, located on the Kwun Tong waterfront is part of a larger urban development scheme which aims to turn the post-industrial district of East Kowloon into Hong Kong’s new central business district (named CBD2). An entirely see-through office stands as an example to the goals of the project to give ultimate transparency within the workplace. The project was commissioned in 2013 by project developer GAW Capital and now stands as one of the flagship projects for the new business development, becoming the bridge between the neighbourhood’s industrial roots and it’s metropolitan future.

H | Residence in Sai Ying Pun, Hong Kong by Rocker-Lange Architects

Friday, May 27th, 2016

Article source: Rocker-Lange Architects

The H | Residence project is located in an up and coming neighborhood on Hong Kong Island.  Though very much shaped by high-rise buildings of the last three decades, the area has still a decent amount of old walk up buildings, revealing the richness of the city’s urban history. The neighborhoods texture consists of many layers of numerous patterns, colors and materials. The result is a vibrant and intense atmosphere, lively and contrasting, yet at times busy and overwhelming.
