Implementing Addressing Solutions for functional Spaces
After discovering facing challenges, we devised appropriate solutions, and implemented them. For instance, a small restroom and kitchenette were constructed in the courtyard to serve events. Furthermore, enclosing the pool was necessary to expand the yard and create an ideal event space. Another example is converting three first-floor rooms into a management and meeting room, as well as repurposing and downsizing the kitchen to become a wet pantry and server room. Therefore, the entire second floor was for private meetings and special guests.
Studio Space: Mesh executive team removed the wall between the courtyard and the main hall, extending towards the front yard to create a meeting space within the studio.
First-floor Terrace: Our design team added an additional outdoor space for open-air meetings, featuring the same roofing as the space below.
Storage Area Transformation: We converted a previously unused storage area into a covered wet pantry. We also made the ceiling of the storage, a balcony serving as a smoking area.
Main Facades: The east-facing entrance facade was brick, while the west-facing courtyard facade was white cement. We undoubtedly, decided to render both facades entirely in white cement.
Preserving Greenery: Surely, a key challenge was maintaining all plants and trees. Throughout the renovation period, we protected all plants to shield them from damage caused by construction materials and debris.
Studio Design: To provide an inspiring workspace for designers, we exposed the interior design process. During excavation, the fascinating framework of the gable roof came to light. We restored, cleaned and treated the roof bricks and reinforced the framework from below. We also showcased the structural elements, plumbing, electrical systems, and even the smart network cabling (CAT6) throughout the process.
