The Rays Lobby by Vstudio Limited

Home > Winners > #50971


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
The Rays

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Lobby

INSPIRATION:
This is a challenging site with no natural light, numerous ceiling beams, floor beams and a very low ceiling. The location of the reception area is carefully designed to surround the existing square column to make it feel like a whole tailor made unit. As the ceiling heights are very low, we used a number of design features to create an illusion of height.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
A revitalization project to convert an old industrial building to a commercial office building. Light troughs are evenly distributed throughout the ceiling and extending to the surrounding space to conceal the numerous ceiling and floor beams with a concept of sustainability and continuity. As the ceiling heights are very low, we used a number of design features to create an illusion of height. For example, we lowered the reception counter tops and used dark wooden stripes and mirrors to lengthen the look of the walls. Also varying the width of the white coloured glass wall resonate the theme of lines and functions to hide the service doors. The glasses/mirrors also reflect light, making the space, higher, bigger and lighter.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Client would like to make the dark space feel brighter, and making the space looks spacious and ceiling looks higher.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in June 2015 and completed in September 2015 in Hong Kong.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Plastic Laminate, White & Black colored back glasses, Mirrors, Hairline Stainless Steel, Corian, marble

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:

TAGS:
office main lobby, office lift lobby, clean, smooth flow

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
For the reception counter, we deliberately design a streamlined element at reception counter, make round the square column with a vertical light strip at one side to make it feel lighter. Streamlined shape of reception counter making a big contrast to the sharp edge elements surrounding. White and grey color tone separate the main lobby and lift lobby giving a strong feeling of the two zones.

CHALLENGE:
Main lobby is located on the First floor, a challenging site with no natural light, numerous ceiling beams, floor beams, columns and a very low ceiling from approximately 2065mm to 2440mm.
