Text description provided by the architects. Ampera Six is a refurbishment office building. As the new company took over it, they decided to renovate it to create a brand new image for the office and also in order to suit their daily activity by added some facilities such as conference room, training room, gymnasium, pantry, rooftop garden, Jacuzzi and restaurant.
It’s a challenge for us to create a new landmark for this area in consideration of the time given for concept design phase is too short, then we decided to have a design which is functional, low maintenance, an office with industrial look and yet an elegance ambiance.
Constructed four stories high, with ground floor designed for restaurant and warehouse, the first and second floor are built for office area include conference room, training room, gymnasium and pantry, and third story is the roof garden with Jacuzzi, lounge that can be used for a private event.
Concrete exposed is chosen as the wall treatment in most of the building combined with laminated clear glass, which give lots of sunlight in during daytime so that can help saving energy. We also apply an open ceiling concept which show the art of mechanical electrical plumbing installation that is well organized and give more industrial look for the office itself.
The main cantilever staircase is constructed with steel beam that is covered by natural solid wood. The steel wire that is installed between the staircase acts as the handrail and for the lighting we put some anti explosive lamps as an accent.
Since this office building is facing west, we design a secondary skin to buffer the striking heat from the sun but yet still have enough sunlight for daytime activity. This secondary skin itself has to be a low maintenance item since this office building is in high traffic area, so the round stainless steel is the best choice. The material is tested weatherproof and when it’s raining, it’s automatically being cleansed. This skin also can move not by machine power but only from the movement of the wind thus it gives the office a dynamic façade. The beam structure of this secondary skin is also used as an emergency ramp and direct access to roof garden.
At roof garden, we use wooden louver to give shades from direct sunlight and natural stonechippings at the back wall for continuous wall treatment from first floor to roof garden.
