By increasing part time serviced employees, to solve the problem of decreasing of efficiency of economic management, president of management set up the advanced plan to offer an interesting hybrid place of resting and strolling to compensate for the reduction of physical area of their office.
LANDSCAPE COMPOSED BY JUNGJA AND SMALL HILL
By landscaping conference room as Korean JungJa which has “Toetmaru”, suspended-folding doors and library as small hill, we designed this hybrid office as being landscape of Korean garden, metaphorically.
By blending the concept of park for resting and enjoying, and working place, we designed the programs of stepped garden, JungJa, bar, lounge, etc, to enjoy the free strolling. Thereby, all the places are characterized as various places of working we expected to improve the efficiency of working by interaction of hybrid behavier, working, resting, strolling.
CONTRADISTINCTIVE HARMONY OF TRADITION AND MODERNITY
Young people, the user of this space, require to use wood for main material because of it’s ecological property. We decided to use translucent polycarbonate glass as a sort of partition. thereby, we try to produce a traditional but modern office landscape by contradistinctive harmony of wood and plastic glass, in terms of material.
To achieve low cost of construction and to emphasize property of wood, we finished cement mortar on existing wall and ceiling and expected that stately modernity of cement mortar emphasize the classic mildness of wood.
