“ Separations, connection, stackle, and array structure. Concept created with these factors brings the Rubik’s cube like space.” This project is an office located in a commercial building in Nanjing, China. Instead of the stereotype of office design, the designer attempted to create gallery into this office as the key feature. Moreover, the geometrical structures are the other main factor for special concept, such as circle, triangle, square and rectangular, to create areas for different function. Some divisions between different areas are movable thus the areas could be divided as well as connected depends on the occasion which brings the most flexibility. On the other hand, to enrich the variation in the office, the icon of art gallery is adopted into the space. All these ideas putting together giving interest to people walking around, making it like an easy walk in the tranquil lanes.

As the lights throw on the layered structures, with the access of the pure materials, it plays the delight in the space, coming back to the origin to show the simplity of materials.The white ceiling and the thin lighting panel come out the contrast in the dark grey space of the meeting room.
Breaking through the ordinary, coming from the purity of the material, the office is no longer a dull space. With the concept of an aesthetic and interesting floating gallery it comes out a unique and extraordinary result.
