No network, No Hub…

With their ambition, Hubba, a co-working space operator, wants to create their new edition of their space differently than their first one. They collaborate with Sansiri, one of the biggest developers in Thailand, to curate their space in Habito, Sansiri’s brand new mall locating in the center of the residential territory they created. Hubba came up with the idea of enlarging the portion of “making” within the ecosystem of “working” to suit the new neighborhood. They call it “Artisan space”, which consists of several handmade facilities such as pottery and wood studio, open kitchen and photography dark room. Screening room for different lectures, workshops and seminars is also added. The intention is to expand their already wide networks, strengthen the concept of being a “hub” and reinforce their “co-working” philosophy.

The design of Hubbato space takes shape from the a funny idea of extending networking lines of Hubba’s original logo and multiply them to occupy/unify space on ground and second floor. We realized that the scheme could be made possible thinking that there are supposed to be quite a number of M&E lines to be installed in the project for functional reason already. Our main operation is to add more into the system and design the organization of these conduits. We color them turquoise to make them visually present (or even emphasize them) throughout the space. We, as designers, usually struggle with M&E elements in our project but, in case of this project, we decide to make it excessive to the degree that it has become an incorporated ornament in architectural space.

With great love and enthusiasm in moto-culture, Vespiario started by being an importer and distributor of Vespa in Thailand, but their ambition and obsession in motorcycle has expanded much more. With their fast growth, the headquarter office moves to the new location to accommodate the increasing number of staffs, at the same time, to implant its new working culture of the company.

The office space which occupies 75% of the high-rise building floor plate is zoned using series of container-like rooms. Some of them are private office while some are displays or meeting rooms of different sizes. They are named “den” or “cabin” depending on what they are for. In the center of the office, located the “steps” where staff can gather of a large office meetings or events. The largest meeting room for 16 people is inserted underneath it.

“2 face space”

Chaay and Jin, an internet advertisement agency duo, want to create their new working den for their company, CJ Worx, which has been growing very quickly in the last years. Locating on the 20th floor of a modern typical office building in Bangkok where the financial offices are, their new office is meant to be a creative alien both in the nature of how their company works and the physical look of it. “Once the elevator opens on our floor, we would like them to think it is a pub”, the duo briefed funnily.

The idea of designing an office for 140 people hidden behind the pub has been pushed further  by inserting 3 modules of farm-house like elements that works like a common area. A cafe’ work space, pantry, playzone & meeting spaces are hidden behind the rotatable bar painted with green and red, a 2 face element. Green faces the front pub facade while red faces the spacious common space. This informal space zone works as a heart of the office where staff intermingle and work creatively.
