Text description provided by the architects. At the initial design stage, considering limited space of project site and client’s large capacity requirement, feeling Design proposed a special design for plan layout with inspiration of Paper Folding.
In this tight space, Beauty is not the only effect we consider. Likewise, we also consider multi-functions. For example, the compound long desk in the meetingroom, its main function is seating, but it also has functions of double-side displaying and storage. The hanging cabinet against the wall, it is not just a storage space but also offers lighting; even the sign design on the glass door, it also integrates with paper folding elementas to interact with the space better. With so many multi-function spaces, a folding space came out and perfectly solved the contradiction between the reality and the client’s need.
This paper folding creativity is simple but effective. It controlled the budget through using easy accessible materials. The main materials of this space are wood veneer, concrete and custom-made metal components. We strengthen the connection and intimacy between people and space through small adjustments to the shape and proportion of the materials.
