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.
“It is typical in architect office to have work on something and not able to complete it for different kind of reasons. Time have been spent… Ideas have been tested (to a certain degree)… We will now share of some of the past proposals that have never been realized on our blog”
Office-R is a pretty typical small size office taking space in a typical row building existing through out Thailand. They rent out the upper floors that they don’t use for other firm while the one on the ground planed to be rent to the bicycle shop. Every inch of the surface is money, the western facade is their existing commercial billboard. Our task is to come up with the new look that merges all that have said with in the limited budget. We proposed the new aluminum facade in a composition of crises-crossing turn. Some vacant spaces between the brick are the windows bringing light into their working spaces.

Shoe-off and chill with us. With sweat, tears(not really) and a bit of blood. This summer we were involved in bringing a tiny part of Thai culture to Japan. In collaboration with our friend, Takashi Nishibori, we design and help building a small Thai market which exhibits and demonstrates Thai craftsmanship like Pee Ta Khon mask, Boh Srang umbrella, Koh Rae boat etc. in a city center of Takamatsu. This is part of a summer program of Setouchi Art Triennale 2016 organized by Art Front Gallery with City of Kagawa. The event will be active till 8 Aug 2016.
