Bean Buro此次的任务是为sapienza Investment位于香港的新办公室进行设计。
Bean Buro was tasked with the soothing design for Sapientia Investment’s new offices located in Hong Kong.
Bean Buro为Sapientia Investment事务所设计的新事务所的灵感来自从IFC两座塔楼顶部俯瞰的令人惊叹的远景。这个项目的挑战之一是在世界上最大、最繁忙的金融区之一的中心创造一个舒适的绿洲空间。作为对这一难题的回应，整体设计表达了香港自然、有机的景观形式，从海港的活力运动和地形形态中汲取灵感，塑造一个呼应周围山脉和潮汐的空间。
Bean Buro’s new office design for Sapientia Investment takes its inspiration from the breath taking vistas observed from the top of the IFC two tower. One of the challenges for this project was to create a soothing space, an oasis in the centre of one of the world’s biggest and busiest financial district. As a response to this conundrum, the overall design expresses the natural, organic forms of Hong Kong’s landscape, drawing from the harbour’s energetic movements and topographic form to sculpt a space that echoes its surrounding mountains and tides.
This cosy 1,600 sqft office offers an open working area for staff, a boardroom and a private office for the director. A sculptural central bookshelf serves as a linking element to those three spaces, as it wraps around the dividing wall, visible from one room to another through glass partitions.
The work area opens to a generous pantry with a large bar. This section of the office was designed with hospitality in mind as it aims to create an area where staff can either socialize or take a break. A continuous bespoke joinery ‘wave’ creates an undulating connection from the open office to the pantry area encouraging staff to fully utilize the space. This architectural expression is also a solution to creating efficient storage, concealing all equipment and paperwork that could otherwise easily pile up and become a distraction.
The space also serves as a gallery to the director’s personal art collection and travel memorabilia. The central library serves as a curated wall to display these objects as well as a variety of Japanese floral arrangements that creates a connection with the exterior greenery and a balanced feel in the interior space. The full height windows allow the space to be filled with natural light and a view of the city’s most beautiful sunset scenes on Hong Kong’s Central harbour and surrounding islands.、
