全球设计风向感谢来自 离宅半米0.5m studio 的办公空间项目案例分享：
In consideration of the rent and cost as a small architectural studio team, we found a space with an area of about 30 square meters for ourselves in the second half of last year as our office site in the next 3-5 years, so as to meet the possible office needs in these years.
I was keen on the small house at my first visit there. It was 2.88 meters wide, 8.7 meters deep, and 6 meters high, which appears narrow, long, high, and ventilated and well-lighted on both the north and south sides. We can imagine whether something indifferent will happen in this small space.
As the Party A of the project, we have listed such a design brief for ourselves according to the demand.
- About 8 permanent office staff
- About 4 temporary office workers
- Site for communication and reporting
- Space for holding small salons, lectures and exchange meetings for about 15 people
- With not influence to the discussion space of other office staff
- Space for temporary accommodation for 1 person
- Tea room with sink
- Open desktop for cutting handmade models
- storage space
- Space for thinking alone
- Living with green plants
How to integrate these functions in the space only with 30 m2? But without the sense of crowding and depressing?
According to the requirements of the design brief, the public office space for 8 people occupies a relatively large area. Therefore, this part of functions shall be arranged firstly. The 8.7-meter-long space is divided into two parts, the second half being taken as public office space
In order to satisfy so many functions in such a limited area, a local interlayer is the only way on the base of the vertical height of the site. Because of the existence of interlayer, it is necessary to place a staircase in the space to complete the upward process from the perspective of vertical height. In the process of graphic layout, we have been trying to minimum the area of stairs as much as possible, but anyway, a certain area will be occupied among the 30 square meters. So, shall we change our thinking and try to turn the staircase shrinking into the process of climbing upward.
It is just like our “climbing up” in the natural environment, we can pass by the green plants, sit on the rocks in pairs, and rest against the trunk when we’re exhausted, thus finally reaching an open site.
At this time, the stairs act not only as upward tools. The height is controlled to be step at 300 mm, the seat for resting at 450 mm, and the groove for planting green plants at 350 mm.
In this way, temporary office, discussion space, small salon, lecture space are all placed in this enlarged staircase during the process of the transformation
∇ “向上攀登”，最终达到公共办公区区域 The process of “Climbing up” to finally reach the public office area
∇ 向上过程中的休息节点 Rest spot during the process upward
In the process of ascending the stairs, we set up the step-by-step climbing handrail to facilitate walking
∇ “攀登”过程的休息平台也是临时办公空间 The rest spot for climbing can also be treated as a temporary office space
After the electric curtain is lowered, the steps can be staggered to sit down as a space for reporting, salon and discussion
The space at the back of the fixed 6-person desk acts as an independent office area, which integrates the functions of printer position and storage, through raising by one level along the front steps
墙面的置物体系 Storage system at the wall
Limited by the area, we attached the space to the wall and made a storage system around the whole space, which is divided into two parts. And the upper part derived from the depth of 280mm shelf to place books, store boxes, plants, etc.
Under the shelf is a circle of suspenders, which is not only used for hanging pictures in the exhibition space temporarily, but also can be used to store and display folding chairs, picture frames, bags and clothes of office workers through hooks. And the white suspender can be used to suspend different objects by S-shaped hook, coat hanger and crossing hanger.
The center parts of the two storage systems are connected by the silver metal corrugated plate of the mirror, forming a sharp contrast with the rough diatom mud wall below
∇ 便于随手一挂包袋、折叠椅的吊杆 The suspender is convenient for hanging bags and folding chairs
The step section of the entrance can also be transformed into a temporary exhibition space, where pictures can be suspended on the hanging white round suspenders, and can be viewed during the process of ascending the stairs
The height of the shelf is exactly the height of about 1.8 meters, which can be reached by the boys with hands, while on which articles can be placed by the girls with the help of chairs or moving steps
小空间里的共处 Getting along in the small space
The visitors’ discussion space, manual-model making space, a one-person lounge and a tea room separated from the public office area are placed under the back section of the interlayer
A 1.2 * 2m bed is embedded in the rest room, which can accommodate the temporary living needs of one person
The tea room applies silver metal material to reduce the sense of oppression stemming from the small space
The tea room and the rest room are separated by a wall, with a sliding door outside, which moves left and right to meet the temporary requirements for personal space
Because of the existence of the mezzanine space, people on the upper and lower layers do not interfere with each other, and perform each activity
The original building adopts the front door and rear window. But we transformed the rear window into a door in order to keep the streamline of the front and rear. In addition, the form of a single folding door which can be opened and closed is applied, which can be partially or completely unfolded according to the needs.
The space 450mm raised starting from the interior is taken as a seat, which is inserted into the tree altar and extended outward to become an outdoor seat. A temporary small table is set, around which three or five friends can chat on summer nights.
Because of the existence of plants, the indoor and outdoor spaces are connected while separated with each other
材质的碰撞 Material collision
Because the space is relatively narrow, the overall gray silver tone is mainly applied to improve the brightness of the overall space. The contrast between the rough texture of diatom mud and the silver water ripple stainless steel, which forms great contrast, collide and overlap in space, increases the sense of gradation and conflict.
∇ 材质 Material
As the original layer is relatively high, the whole block is divided into two parts by the material cutting in the vertical height in accordance with the function. Through the division of material and color on the facade, the oppression stemmed from height is weakened.
The space above the shelf is connected with the top surface to form a whole by the white paint. While under the shelf, the coarse gray cross texture of grain mud is used
The furniture such as tabletop and handrails all apply the texture of cross grain diatom mud and white round tube derived from the same elements
In order to minimum the construction cost as much as possible, the original use of table legs wrapped by mirror stainless steel and leather upholstery made of cushion was changed into self-made cushion and wrapped table leg made from idle sponge, truck strap, aluminum foil pearl cotton through constant attempt later.
Because of the drawability of the binding belt, the height of the cushion can be adjusted according to the needs, and the surface material can be replaced according to the temperature change
The entrance doorplate also uses the combination of water-pipe insulation cotton of aluminum foil, orange PVC soft film, pressure buckle binding belt
As the whole space is narrow and long, two coherent light tubes are used to form two light bands with longitudinal feeling, in order to adapt to the narrow and long feeling of the space and form uniform office lighting. The raised frame of the desktop is applied, and the lamp tube is fixed with tie strap, which is used as office auxiliary light
Unexpectedly, the park’s evening is the liveliest time. Many residents around come here to enjoy the cool and take a walk. From time to time, they also probed their head to look around, and stepped up several steps curiously at the glimpse of the office on this step.
