Translucency and Transparency
For this office overlooking Victoria Harbour, a series of partitions are positioned along a path that extends from the reception, and selectively filters the sightlines and natural lights to strengthen the qualities specific to the context of each space. Steel fins, timber walls, clear and sandblasted glass altogether define the required degree of translucency and transparency. Some offer a glimpse of the office interior that appears only at certain angles, some block undesired view but allowing filtered natural light in, and some direct the users’ and visitors’ perspectives to an unobstructed panoramic view of the harbour. The overall experience amplifies as the journey into the office progresses.
