Recently, the German IF Design Award 2021 was announced. Out of nearly 10,000 entries from 52 countries/regions, the design of Amber Hill Group’s Taipei office stands out in the interior architecture category.
The office is located in the bustling Taipei metropolitan area, abandoning the conventional design of the general financial industry office, using "soft" as the design core and created a soothing "oasis" in the noisy city.
Through the interaction of light, wood and stone, the work shows the essence of the integration of man and nature. The overall use of large area of glass curtain wall light into the room, through the wooden grid and compartment design, which allows the light and air flow through and evenly dispersed on the warm wood, showed a "transparent sense of space". The design of the high and low curve of the wooden grille conveys the image of the hill represented by the corporate concept of "Hill".
The work satisfies the different usage needs of clients and employees. The double doors at the entrance are designed to divide the flow of traffic, cleverly defining the scope of the public and private areas; the meeting room uses moving doors which adds flexibility to the use of each item, resolving interference between simultaneous meetings.
At the same time, the design of the work creates a comfortable, relaxed and bright atmosphere. The leader's office creates a sense of space transparency through the calm grey-green and two floor-to-ceiling windows. The carpet contains three different shades of blue, overlapping the color layer like the ocean, giving people a comfortable feeling like wandering in the sea. The staff office adopts is an open space without estrangement. The exposed pipeline on the ceiling and the hanging plants and lamps at random are used to strengthen the change of vertical levels and the sense of openness. Floor-to-ceiling glass Windows are used in the open rest area to enjoy the city scenery and soothe the fatigue between work.
