From the architect. Shanghai based practice Taranta Creations has designed their own studio located in Shanghai, China. The design is a reflection of the ongoing creative process within the studio. The intervention seeks to provide an adaptable space that supports a range of informal functions.

The office is situated in a former metal factory. The excising diagonal steel structure was causing difficulties to fulfill the wish of the studio to create two floors. The distance between the structure and ceiling was too small for a traditional office layout of floor and tables; therefore a floor is created just above the steel structure.

Four working stations are placed in the space between the steel profiles, transforming the floor into one continuous desk, while the four recessed stations provide a more traditional workspace. The large 'work floor' invites the designers to use the open space for thinking, sketching, meeting, drafting, modeling, sitting and relaxing. This informal interpretation of office space encourages cross-pollination between the different projects and disciplines occurring within the studio.

On the lower floor the individual workstations are placed along the window. A green sculptural table can be used for communal activities. Informal and contoured, the central staircase is reminiscent of a large droplet of water ready to fall from the ceiling. Upon entering the stairway, a highly saturated environment of bright red engulfs and surrounds the individual, starkly marking the transition between the contrasting office areas. The color is repeated on the second floor as an accent to highlight the recessed work areas.

Wow, this looks stunning. Some creative mastermind has been able to let go of the conventional office layout to create something much more dynamic and original!
