fulfilling the need for additional work space for their increasing number of multi-disciplinary, creative professionals, bangkok-based design firm apostrophy’s has completed the renovation of their thailand office. ‘apos²’ has been completely rethought from its original scheme, previously featured by designboom here, and incorporates new, essential facilities such as a learning-media center, design material lab and shared spaces for coworker interaction.
apostrophy’s considers the housing-development-turned-workspace as ‘the prototype of an ‘instant office’ by using ‘knock down’ structure assembly with simple techniques and general building materials such as angle bars, plywood, basic fittings and finished with general painted color. there is not any part of this design that effects or attaches to the existing building surface, so it is a flexible space for mobility and easy to renovate in the future.’

vivid, primary color has been used as a core feature of the design, consisting of three hues — red, blue and yellow — saturating each level. a rainbow-toned, spectrum staircase leads workers from floor to floor, and free hand typographic illustration about design philosophy is drawn onto the surface of the surrounding walls.

the second floor has been designed as a working area called ‘aposer room’, marked by an overall blue color, to make this space calm, tranquil and stable. as an open plan office, all working desks have been placed facing each other to allow staff interaction. a huge typographic phase spells out ‘there is no ‘I’ in team, but there is in win’ on the wall to remind all staff to collaborate and solve problems together.

the third floor has been realized as a brain storming room and executive meeting space. it is marked by a bright yellow hue, saturating every inch from the walls to seats and lighting fixtures. the vibrant tone is intended to illuminate the space and spark creative thinking, while a typographic phase about working development informs both beginner staff and executive officers.
