Text description provided by the architects. In a downtown alley full of pedestrians, a beige gray workshop is composed and included in the daytime. As the night falls, the workshop becomes a white bright stage amidst the quiet dim streets. With a flow of rays and lights created by the revolving door, the workshop emits the nighttime proactive vitality in contrast to the daytime subtle calm.
A small interior chamber in a downtown alley is a stage of fine design in a horizontal open elevation.
With a start of a large terrace and a central revolving door in charge of spatial expansion and coherence, a continuity consisting of sun & air and visual banquet & imagination is presented, which not only amplifies but also manages a flowing sense of space.
A revolving door makes an interior cabinet a visual focus and also divides the chamber into the meeting and task zones, which manages the multilayer effect in the holistic design. A private task zone is located behind a semi-open meeting district following an outdoor terrace.
A metal cabinet as a visual core designed by a compact linear design idea meets all essential interior demands, including the visual arrays in the public room and the bar and storage need in the task zone.
A random cutting means applies to visual confinement and a fixed framework applies to presentation of varied scenery, which renders the flowing rays and acts within a framework and creates see-through and visual shelter forming an open intimate interior atmosphere.
