otherwhere studio's tranquility box provides a quiet place of refuge in hong kong

 

otherwhere studio have created a ‘tranquility box’ – a quiet place of refuge, away from the hectic office. the intimate space is located within a workstation complex in hong kong, and is defined by its distinct separation between different functional areas.

when entering the space, workers are led down a narrow corridor, allowing them to release any preoccupied thoughts before starting their day. otherwhere studio have presented a minimal setting inside the office, which prepares one for the day ahead. this area is interrupted by a separate space, which provides a place of refuge, tranquility and relaxation. a natural tree trunk coffee table, complimentary cushions and a hanging swing stand at the centre of the room, suggesting a peaceful, calming environment. a shelf structure follows the back wall, providing books, music and place to sit, allowing colleagues to insert a moment of reflection into their working day.
