I wanted to achieve a space that will make a client willingly spend their money when they’re in it. A space they would see the value of their money.
The project has majorly 3 main spaces. The welcoming space <code name: reception>,the meeting room <code name:Presentation room> and the Architects work space. The Reception is meant to be a welcoming space so I gave it more floor to ceiling height compared to other subsequent spaces. I Wanted the architect’s space to be higher off the ground to give hierarchy and for supervision. The Reception has display walls with plaster frames framing pictures of artistic impression of buildings done by the firm to keep the person in waiting area Busy and help him gauge the works the Architect has done.
Meeting space is a transition space between the receptions/welcoming space and the architects workspace, it has views into both spaces and a presentation wall. The is an exhibition space where the architect presents to the client or hold a meeting. for its interior i chose to depict exhibition by using a display wall with plaster frames that frame the projects the architect has done and adjacent to it is a shelf for physical models done. The shelve filter views into the architect’s office. The meeting room is raised by 150mm taking the reception floor as the zero level, and it is lit from under to emphasize the Step making a strip of light below the floor. Architects’ office was given hierarchy by having the highest floor level to give it the view into all the subsequent spaces for monitoring with filtered views. The Architect is able to look at the reception activity when in his work space.
The project concept being the “Dominance” depicted using the dominance of a straight line to a curve. Ceiling was made by a curve to make a wave in section and the furniture design was dominated by
curves. The wall and floor design was dominated by lines. Which shows fight for supremacy which a straight line wins.
okay let me get this off my my chest, i hate curves i had wished to do a project where i do a David-On-Goliath kinda of thing to the curve, so this is it. Line-on-Curve sort of thing.
Color scheme was coffee brown and white to achieve the dominance and warm scenario.
Materials to enhance my concept of the project, I wanted the materials that will have a color of earth which is brown and combined it with white to come up with a warm touch to the space. This depicts the behavior of a person being calm when feeling inferior or a subject to the dominant. The spaces have filtered views into other spaces which were achieved by Book shelves and Model shelves, it makes the spaces connected.
