项目创作背景

Project Background

 

友邦金融中心位于香港最热的金融中心地段中环,为了方便上班一族可以品尝咖啡,友邦集团决定在大堂内加设咖啡店。大堂本身的设计简约高尚,白色的大理石地配上黑色的大理石墙和深灰色的金属跟木天花,但最吸引的都是那个高高的玻璃幕墙正正对着建筑大师贝律铭笔下的中银大厦。设计纲要提及到,甲方希望咖啡店能融入大堂本身的气氛,而尽量避免阻挡到玻璃幕墙的观景。

 

Located in the Central, Hong Kong's popular financial district, AIA Group decided to add coffee shops in the lobby to make it easier for commuters to enjoy their coffee. The lobby itself is simple and elegant, with white marble floors with black marble walls and dark gray metal and wood ceilings, but the main attraction is the tall glass facade facing the bank of China Building described by the architect Pei Lv Ming. According to the design outline, Party A hopes that the coffee shop can integrate the atmosphere of the lobby and avoid blocking the view to the glass curtain wall as much as possible.

 

 

 

项目问题与解决方式

Problem Statement and Project Solution

 

为了打造一个跟大堂环境不太过冲突的咖啡店,首先我们选用了大堂内本身已出现过的物料放到这咖啡店,使整体感觉一致。而第二个考虑因素就是通透性的需要,本身友邦的英文”AIA”,字型看下去好像数支竹签交迭起来,另人联想到小时候的一个小游戏- “挑竹签”,竹签本身很脆弱,但当数支交迭起来后可形成一个稳固的结构,而且通透性强,不会阻挡视缐。

 

In order to create a coffee shop that does not conflict with the lobby environment, first of all, we selected materials that have already appeared in the lobby and put them into the coffee shop to make the overall feeling consistent. And the second factor is the need of permeability, itself, English "AIA" AIA, font look likes a bamboo stick overlap. Other people think of a small game - "pick bamboo stick, bamboo stick itself is very fragile, but when the number of overlap together to form a solid structure, and permeability is strong, will not affect the sight.

Creation Process & Result

 

最后我们运用了像竹签一样的结构,经过精心的计算把整个咖啡店建出来,包含了柱子,墙和天花,甚至是灯的考虑,都融入到竹签里。材质上竹签主要分为金属和木材两种表达方式,咖啡吧枱则由黑白两种大理石组成,全都是”就地取材”。由于位置的问题整个咖啡店覆盖到其中一支大厦的柱子,我们把这部份包上木板,变成餐牌展示墙。

 

Finally, we used the structure like bamboo stick. After careful calculations, we built the whole coffee shop, including pillars, walls, ceilings and even lights. The bamboo stick material basically is divided into metal and lumber. The coffee bar table is composed of black and white two kinds of marble. It is all "local materials". Due to the location of the cafe, the whole cafe covers the pillars of one of the buildings, so we covered this part with boards and turned it into a display wall.

 

 

如何理解项目与“人文湾区∙温暖的设计”这一主题的关联性? 

How does the project reflect the exhibition theme ‘Cultural Bay Area • Humanistic Design’?

 

"挑竹簽"是小時候家傳戶曉的小游戲,還記得一家大小都樂在其中。隨著科技的發展這些經典的小玩意都被遺忘了。我們希望藉着這個項目重新把這小玩意演繹到空間設計上,重拾一下溫暖。

 

Mikado was one of my favorite games when I was young. We used to play a lot with family and friends. I wish to bring this childhood memory by designing my own Mikado structure.
