With the striking stance, an “orange metal screen”, which surrounding by blue façade of ocean park, becomes the iconic gate dialogue with the site. Considering the cycle of seasons of northern city, the changing shadow is cast on the ground through the mesh structure. As the dramatic start, the lightness screen indicates the variety of the interior space with orange language.

 As the perfect combination, the reception room, meeting room, reading room are linked by the orange border, that attains the unity of architectural function and aesthetics. Walking throughout the flexible reception areas, the matrix exhibition wall comes into our eyes that occupies the height of the space.

Details in accordance with materials
To consider the low budget, the main materials need to fabricate easily while focusing on temperature and tactility of materials. As the complementary hues, our proposal is to utilize the warm and bright orange to define the atmosphere of the office, while embracing by the blue sky, ocean, and buildings. Meanwhile the terrazzo floor as the background connects different materials. For the overall space strategy, based on the limited budget, we struggle to make restrained design, which achieves a clear and pure scenario of space.
