This project is a Co-working space, located between the North Second Ring Road and the North Third Ring Road in Beijing, which belongs to the central area of Beijing. The client hope that it can be both public and private, with a small amount of food and coffee, it is a platform to provide cross-border exchanges and exhibitions.
We take an abstract and concrete combination of "boundary feeling" as the inspiration source, hoping to shape a clear boundary, but also to integrate and interact with each other's spatial feelings. This kind of boundary can be perceived by human's instinctive sense of visual connection, but the boundary of space is not actually delimited, it is a boundary that can be seen but not defined.
The core space on the first floor is the roadshow space in the central part. We hope that it is the most intuitive feeling of this "undefined boundary" space. Brand colored electro-optic glass sliding door and front and back two transparent electro-optic glass partition enclosed the road show space, it can also adjust the opening degree at will, enclosed a transparent or private functional space.
The whole space is composed of ground floor and basement. The basement often gives people a feeling of darkness, humidity and depression. We hope that the underground space can also have the same experience of light, permeability and air permeability. So we use a sunken patio and a sunken air-lift to put together ground floor of public space and underground office space, which is relatively connected and isolated, and to bring light to the underground. So the underground space is not only bright, but also an interesting space.
The quality of the toilet reflects the comprehensive experience of a space. We hope that the "undefined boundary" feeling of the toilet is also strong. We hope that it is a cool place.
In addition to the open public space, there are four separate small offices in the underground office space. The skylight above is also a glass floor at the entrance. This relationship not only introduces daylighting to the underground office, but also adds another level of richness to the entrance. It also makes the interesting interaction of the sight a minor mood adjustment for users in their daily life.
The small meeting room is a sharing space here. We hope it is private but public. It is located on the ground floor of 1/2 and above the communication room. It not only has a sense of ritual to enter the small conference room through the stairs on both sides, but also enhances the experience of privacy. At the same time, users in the small conference room can adjust their own and "outside" vision through brand-colored electro-optical glass.
