From the playground of Google Office to the botanical garden of Amazon and to the home button of Apple's Earth, everyone is not willing to be traditional, let you feel free. When the office space that you are interested in suddenly flashes on our screen, in addition to envy them for daring to do what they want to do and being in the scene, you will hate yourself for being so poor in reality! Does poverty limit our imagination? When the Lance team commissioned us to design the office space of the company’s new site, at the similar age and with the consistent team culture and the same way of life and work, almost at the beginning of the same time, we firmly established the view: “We want to create a beautiful Office space, not boring working space.”
It implicated that “Although the project budget is not high, customers have high expectation.” Of course, this must be a joke. If imagination can be so easily restricted by poverty, will inventors and
artists become patents of the rich people? In this era of explosive information, we can see or know that there are some interesting spaces in this world.
However, in the dense urban buildings, we have rarely heard of it around us. On the morning of every working day, it is hard to imagine what kind of work place will people rush to from the subway station, and from what kind of place do they come, tired.
After the design direction was clarified, the longawaited Bali Hubud holiday office project quickly inspired the design team. What kind of creation can make people feel the space of office rather than working? How can we create a holiday-like work mood in the reinforced concrete forest? How can we surprise this group of young and interesting dynamic group of office workers? A lmost every creation comes from this kind of self-reporting. After we get some positive answers, a series of thoughts such as space construction, material language, and interesting topics are organized under reasonable logical reasoning. The layered floor makes the plants appear to grow from the ground, not in the pots. Plywood, as the theme material, has become the most unexpected props of this space theater whether in the cost, progress or special texture effects, although this is a material that designers have always ignored.
The leaves of the characteristic fruits and plants of Southeast Asia, a tourist resort, are hand-painted in the space. When the plants breathe, the pristine materials and the interesting elements are intertwined, and we seem to hear the waves beat the beach music, as if we are seeing the joy of the jungle, taste the taste of tropical fruits and feel the coolness of broadleaf. Hubud touched us because we never thought that we can enjoy working at Bali in addition to enjoying the holidays there. The intent of creating Lance Office is that you have never imagined that in the reinforced concrete city, in addition to the boring step-by-step and day-to-day work in the office building, there are people who are pleasant, distant and interesting.
