  • Those designs are beautiful, almost too beautiful for office space, haha.
    I think a well designed work place inspires you and also creates a good atmosphere as architecture can influence people's state of mind much more than some expect.

    not sure why this even won, there is not much creativity about the organisation of spaces. Do we live in graphics?

    • Yasmine

      The graphics are not predominant in this project, actually they are really few.
      It's look more like a "plain" space.
      Design is not always about what you see in the first place. Thinking that one need to add plenty of "decoration effects" to show some kind of "creative" skills is a wrong idea.
      Design is deeper than that. It's before all creating emotions with volumes and light intensity (high or low) mainly, and sometimes with thrift, textures and color.
      A good project is a space that plays with your mind and leave space to your imagination too, which is the case here.
