This project is the enterprise headquarters for Fox Film in Taiwan, and Wood Block Interior is the undertaker for this commercial spatial planning design project after undergoing an international design competition.
The double-square spatial arrangement is applied to the overall space to enhance dynamic circulation and function. Its internal spatial planning starts with the foyer, with the middle section serving as the meeting space and the left side serving as the audio-visual room.
There are also several supervisor offices and office areas, while the interior of the entrance is the exclusive display corridor for Film.
The overall spatial design demonstrates a high level, as well as the unique movie industry characteristics. In pursuit of honoring Film’ roots – movies – the overall space is filled with movie shooting objects throughout the entire venue.
The front desk and rear wall of the entrance reception area is transformed into a clapperboard, while the lighting on the ceiling of the foyer is in the shape of 35mm film negative, where the outer film of the reel naturally rises, resembling the frozen moment of the start of the film.
The flying negative along the venue is connected to the gigantic film strip on the wall, with perforations on the top and the bottom, whereas the film negative frames are specially made into the size of real movie posters. This allows the proprietor to update the new blockbuster movies, thereby directing Fox movies to adapt to the latest trends.
The corridors and transitions of the various areas are further connected by the gentle contours of the filmstrips, such that walking along will feel like strolling amongst movie frames, making all the light shine across the space.
The interior was planned with a movie screening room to simulate cinema spec arrangements, where the gradated indirect illumination further enhanced the atmosphere.
The office space adopted track lighting and clear glass compartments, while the ceiling is exposed, and low saturation colors together with wooden quality are used to create a warm texture for the overall space.
Industrial trends are introduced into the space, with the blending of lively and fun cartoon characters on the compartments, which further demonstrates the application of movie themes throughout the entire space starting from the entrance to the work area.
