AD ARCHITECTURE from China Explored Undiscovered

AD ARCHITECTURE, based in Shantou City of China, recently finished a creative office that explored undiscovered "boundaries" for their client XZONE. With the contrast of square and round elements, the ingenuous utilization of materials, colors and formations, as well as application of abstract concept, the designers created a space full of unknowns.

"A square box constitutes the main framework of the workspace. In the conversation area, we integrated semi-circle structures and a ball hung from the ceiling into the single spatial block, resulting in intersection of different boundaries," said the firm. Not restricted to a certain rule, all the elements in the space can form various combinations. When these interesting and diversified elements collide with each other, the originally ordinary space becomes unique.

Materials of different textures break the consistency in the space and endow it with various features. The steel structure of the ceiling was retained, which becomes a highlight of the spatial design. The coordinated combination of rough and delicate textures generates contrast in the space, and creates a free atmosphere in it.

The designers adopted a restraint color scheme, with white and light gray as major hues, to create a spact that is full of tension. Striking red and pink colors are dotted in the space, which inject vitality into it. In the conference area, the red sofa and pink panel form contrast with the spatial overtone set by white color. Different colors bring collisions of restraint and agitation, and at the same time facilitate emotional and idea exchanges in the space.
