Office at Hong Kong Plaza by Plot Architecture Office, Hong Kong

July 28th, 2016 by retail design blog

This existing office has been reconfigured and its routine restructured in order to create a larger area for their new reception lobby. Two of the executive rooms have been relocated to allocate this area, in the form of an elongated volume intercepting the office entrance. The new volume is lit with two distinct light sources: sideways natural light from the existing windows at one end, and static light from a new ceiling aperture created at the opposite end. Between the two light sources, a series of objects are placed longitudinally along the line of symmetry.

These objects create depths and form sculptural elements in a linear space. In sequence, light from the aperture shines on a dark island (pantry) which is concealed behind a metal panel that also sets the backdrop to the concrete mass (receiving counter). Progressing along the marble ground (waiting area) layered glass screens have been placed in the centre. When the screens unfold they partition off a glazed meeting room, the users inside will see the objects emerge again yet contained behind a glass plane as exhibits distanced on a marble stage.
