The New Ways of Working

From the beginning of the industrial age, people went to the same cubicle, sitting on the same chair, working on the same desk and doing the same job everyday. But technology development, flexible management, flexible schedule, individual demands changed the fixed working to flexible working, from cubicle to open plan office. It gave people the opportunities to work outside the office, afterward the over-built offices started to face the vacant situation.

Roy Yin tries to create a new kind of office design that meets the shrinking office phenomenon. In his point of view, if people shrink the office into its limit and implement lively program such as cafe, market and so on, the office would not shrink anymore. As a result, he creates a playful office format for the workers and took advantage of every inch of the space.

In Roy’s design, the office consists of units in different heights based on human’s need, allowing people to work and meet everywhere, in many postures, in the office. For example: The one in the corner can talk with the one who is upstairs. With this format, it is able to create a free working environment for people in any office to fulfill their individual working needs.

全新办公模式

在一般情况下,当今工作空间利用率正在萎缩。这种现象反映了企业如何降低他们使用的办公空间的面积,从而降低成本。如果企业将继续最大限度地节省成本,办公室空间的利用率会缩减到它的最终极限。那时将不会有更多的空置办公室将出现,因为空置率达到最大。在此期间的建筑物,其中曾经设计用于办公室的剩余空间,可用于其他丰富多彩的项目。这就意味着,一个多元化的生活空间与工作场所之间的距离将仅有一步之遥。因此,写字楼会起死回生。因此,对于这个设计项目的问题是:是否有可能设计一个办公室的景观,是无法缩小的,从而提供比传统的办公室工作和非正式会议一个更适合的空间,同时创造额外的各种热闹项目?

在我看来,设计一个不可再缩的办公室,我应该专注于如何配置一个满足最基本需求的功能性办公空间,这还会最高效率地使用每一寸空间。换句话说:创建一个密集的工作空间。这个空间应该允许人们用不同姿势在任何一个角落工作,甚至在角落,在对方头上,在迄今为止未曾被使用的空间,以创造一个整体的灵活的工作景观让大家工作,在不同的地点会面。除了利用不同的地方,新办公室的景观也将开辟新的工作惯例的可能性。
