The designer thoughtfully made good use of the spacious area with an open-office design to widen the area, while using round lines to shape the ceiling, delicate chandelier, and furniture design, perfectly merging the two unique areas of shared space and workspace into a stressless office.

The first spot which catches your attention is probably the studio reception which is illustrated by a curved-line desk made with bronze, a wooden stripe pattern on the curved ceiling, as well as the material use of art paints on the wall, creating coherence between parts by parts. A modern-minimal pendant as an embellishment of the space, giving the guests a harmonious welcoming.
Making use of a commodious and superior view outside, designer completed a studio design with an open shared space for employees and guests to spend a moment to chill out.

Designer considers carpet as one of the essential elements of this design, using two-color tones to identify and differentiate the pathway and area, making this a warmer orientation for guests.
A floor-to-ceiling lattice cabinet is situated in the middle of the open shared space, with the shelf partitions made of wood and bronze which is merging with the vibes in the overall space, designer decided to place certain potted plants and books to ornament the setting. This cabinet becomes an open island connected to the open space and dining area, also as a cover to conceal the functional cabinet behind which is equipped with a coffee machine and a fridge. On the other side of the island, there is a bar table with some hanging plants as a decorative top covering, which also delivers a sense of privacy for the dining area behind. A place filled with calm and a broad view, where you can empty your mind for a moment.
Located on the side of the open shared space, the two meeting rooms are designed in a streamlined concept with a transparent bronze frame glass and a modern touch, with the effect to widen the visual perception. Besides, infusing these elements into other enclosed offices synchronizes the entire working area and delivers the message of comfortability throughout the space.
Designer utilized a floor-to-ceiling grid screen to separate the open space and working area, to remain the sense of spacing in general. The design of the working area is intentionally different from the chilling area while a bronze grid ceiling is used to stay consistent with the separating screen concisely. To replace the traditional office board between seats with the greeneries, and a lighting design that is pleasant to work in with a focused ambiance, reforming a workspace that "feels like home".
Being considerate and resourceful for a studio design, a material room that stores different prototypes is situated on the backside of the office, also merging with comfy light wood color, classify all materials and books in a good manner.
