The conceptual design is the first stage of any project, it addresses the client’s needs and aesthetic expectations and shows the architect’s main idea for the given space design.
Investment fund - 300 m2 office design
The project was to offer a consistent space concept for a small but fast-growing investment fund. Classic decoration solutions were combined with the new technologies and the finish precision.
Functional design combines an open reception area with adjacent executive offices, a meeting room and a social area, all grouped at one side of the office, and the front and back office areas on the other. Partition walls with glass elements are conducive to the visual communication within the office, similarly the arched shape of the corridor makes it possible to view most of the spaces from the reception.
Furniture was tailor-made for this project: high class natural veneer, top quality steel with brushed metal finish and high-gloss varnished elements.
Some decorative elements were also added – for instance wall cladding, stucco work and designer lamps in the meeting room.
The project was to design an original office space for a new and fast-growing advertising agency. The client wished for an unconventional space conducive to creativity and employee-friendly. The original effect was achieved by the use of modern materials and intense colours referring to the company colour scheme.
The functional design allows for an open, spacious reception area with a discretely concealed hallway with conference rooms and board members rooms leading to a bright open area occupied by the company designers, administrative staff, finance and human resources departments. Small round spaces along the corridor which cannot seen from the outside contain meeting rooms, printers and vending machines.
The finishes used in this project (natural veneer, black glossy varnish, chrome steel, soft carpet) contrast with one another, thus creating a dynamic and highly original space.
Open bar idea / cafe design
The open bar is a fragment of a wine shop situated in a cellar under the restaurant. The idea was to give customers direct access to the place where the wine is kept. The bottles were placed in holes made in vertical wooden pillars attached both to the floor and ceiling. After the guests have chosen the wine, they can ask to taste it immediately at small tables positioned nearby or sit comfortably in enclosed spaces situated in a different part of the room.
