the nara-based studio nLDK designed an office using almost nothing more, than just a bunch of plastic containers.because of the client’s plan to expand the business and move again to a larger office in a few of years, the architects were challenged to organize the space quickly, minimizing costs and waste material once the future moving happens.
ecyclable plastic containers, which serve as partitions, floors, furniture, and plant pots, are not covered by anything, except for lamination. using some very simple materials, such as tatami and particle board, nLDKmanaged to diversify the interior and make it more sophisticated.
as well as different materials, a lot of greening is used in the office — palm trees, ficuses and other plants provide the sense of a habitable space, while the venue itself is raw with the original ceilings and floors kept. the venue is located in nagoya, aichi, japan, under the shinkansen line.
