Conran and Partners建筑事务所对伦敦市中心一间办公室的一楼大堂进行了翻新，创造了一个“模糊工作和娱乐之间的界限”的共享空间。
Architecture practice Conran and Partners has renovated the ground floor lobby of a central London office to create a shared space that “blurs the edges between work and play”.
“[The project] has been designed to re-imagine a new type of ground floor space that interweaves office reception, private members club, café culture and hotel experience; blurring the edges between work and play,” said the practice.
“A significant task was to soften the large open space, meaningfully dividing it into a series of connected environments with different uses.””The design responds to the changing work culture of modern tenants, ultimately giving the space a new lease of life,” it continued.
该办公楼是ITN Productions，ITV和Warner Bros等众多知名媒体组织的所在地，最初由Foster + Partners设计并于1991年开业。
The office building, which is home to a number of high-profile media organisations including ITN Productions, ITV and Warner Bros, was originally designed by Foster + Partners and opened in 1991.
Its existing lobby featured a conventional reception area that was largely only used as an entry point to the wider building. The ground floor space now combines an office reception, cafe and a mix of formal and casual seating areas.
Light-hued timber desks and emerald velvet stool seats with brass bases have also been dotted throughout.The cafe is located at the rear of the lobby but can spill out into the rest of the space during busy breakfast and lunchtime periods.
Strips of greenery have also been inset into a rear wall to improve air quality and minimise noise levels.These design features are intended to encourage users to linger, mix and engage in the reception area, rather than simply passing through the space en route to offices at higher levels.
A palette of hard and soft materials – like terrazzo, metal, timber and leather – has been applied to create an inviting interior that maintains a connection with the external urban landscape, breaking down the barrier between the public and corporate environments.Gridded panels of lighting have also been inserted into the exposed concrete ceiling to highlight the existing structure and rhythm of the architecture.
To minimise the disruption of the building’s internal structural layout, joinery was also designed by the practice to adjust to the existing on-site conditions.
