Life Flow Small Home Office by Rae Tsai and Jimmy Ko

Home > Winners > #99389


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Life Flow

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Small Home Office

INSPIRATION:
At UrBesign, the clients and their aesthetics should be reflected in the design, rather than those of the designer. Designs reflect the personality of the client. With this project for a couple and their newborn, establishing a home office balanced with a suitable residential space was paramount. The driving concepts are balance between time,space,and interactions between the various users of the space while minimizing the amount of materials used yet maximizing the impact of the space.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The goals of this project are functionality for the current owners, a couple with a newborn, while also allowing easy modification for future owners. This Small Home Office features a central conference table for conducting business, while all other functional areas surround the workspace. With flowing lines and sliding doors as walls, work can continue while the other family members can use other private spaces without interference.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Entering the property through a small entrance hallway, visitors are greeted with a central conference table for conducting business. Sliding doors allow the obscuring of all other functional areas surrounding the workspace. With flowing lines and sliding doors as walls, work can continue while the other family members can move freely through and use the other spaces in the apartment without interference.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
This project finished in May 2019.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Interior Space and Exhibition Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Replacing walls with minimal cabinets and open shelves, more light is allowed into the entire space. Sliding doors section off private spaces or can be opened up, creating an almost continuous ring around the central office space. Open cabinetry and separating walls are highlighted with a black metal outline to protect against damage and contrast with their surroundings. Various types and grades of stone & wood flooring is used throughout to emphasize and reflect the functionality of the spaces.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
This apartment comprises 122m2 of interior space with one small outdoor balcony of an additional 10m2. The layout includes one bedroom, one living room, one conference room, one kitchen, one full bath and one half bath.

TAGS:
Interior design, home office, residence, shared space, modern, flexible

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Knowing that this property will be sold by the current owner in the future, the designers explored the surrounding properties and their price range to target the maximum resale potential while balancing remodeling costs. In this market, the pricing of apartments and bank loan amounts are generally tied to the number of bedrooms an apartment has, making this a difficult decision in balancing the needs of a SOHO vs. a private residence.

CHALLENGE:
Transforming a four bedroom space into the dual role of small office/home office and living space for a couple with a newborn while still maximizing resale value in comparison to surrounding properties. The other major challenge was finding a balance between public and private areas and a fluidity between both of these roles.

CLIENT/STUDIO/BRAND DETAILS
NAME:
Urbesign Interior Design

PROFILE:
In 2014, Urbesign was founded by two architects who were annoyed by the market emphasizing on the skin of the building instead of the space usage. Why? Is it really what the life essence should be? The two young architects started to put their belief into practice. They look forward to the day when there is no longer a boundary between exterior and interior, but integrated design for people to live.
