OFFICE RECONSTRUCTION / A HIDDEN GARDEN BEHIND THE REINFORCED CONCRETE WALLS

This project is to reconstruct an office in a high-rise building, the original space is in inadequate streamlined layout with multiple irregular shapes and dead space, and the overall utilization rate is low. The client wants the designers transform his office into a place where his staff can take a breath of nature behind the reinforced concrete walls. To this end, the designers abandoned the idea of traditional cubicles, and instead, they lined desks and bookshelves in curved shape alongside the walls and ceiling and moved the “forest” into the office, making it an open space with natural vitality.
