Plasess

Our client has set their sights on rehabilitating and renovating the entire environment around the Plasess Ayutthaya Factory, for which we have taken charge of the interior re-design and renovation of the canteen space on the second floor of the Canteen Building. Our client has emphasized the requirement of turning away from conventional designs of most canteen spaces but rather put forward a more calming atmosphere worthy of sitting down and letting go one’s mind, yet have a cool and stylish streak within the space; a challenging exercise that we have accepted.

With dense foliage of the forest as the motif image, the branches and leaves are abstractedly translated into the herringbone patterns strewn in dark blue across the room walls, reinforced by the lighting experience on the dark blue walls and floor where shadows casted smoothly shift with the change in lighting condition, skillfully impacting the users all across the space. When applying with the grainy wood texture, the same motif exhibits the traditionally used symbol of rice stalks, further contributing to the mood of this space as a place to eat.

Far away from the glass curtain wall, darker tones have been incorporated such that natural illumination effects from the sun can be felt and culminate in a calming space where users can sit down and compose themselves. In contrast, the users sitting on counter seats alongside the curtain wall can fully experience the change in daylighting and immerse themselves fully with their release of work tension. Such a contrast in experience is a worthy target to achieve in our design.

Furthermore, as the Canteen itself is a much frequented facility which is used by staff members from morning till late into the night, we have therefore not neglected the lighting experience for this space after sunset.

Plasessのアユタヤ工場の職場環境改善を目指し、今回建て直した食堂棟2階にあるキャンティーンスペースの内装設計及び施工を担当。オーナーからは、工場の典型的な食堂イメージに陥ることを注意深く避け、居心地が良く、落ち着く雰囲気を持ちながらも、スタイリッシュでクールな空間作りを目指したいというご依頼をいただいた。

色濃く生い茂る森林のイメージをモチーフとして選び、その枝葉の造形を抽象化する為にヘリンボーンのパターンと組み合わせ、濃紺の壁面に照明によって浮かび上がらせることで、空間に奥行きを感じられる様に工夫した。また、同モチーフを明るい木目で重ね合わせることで、食の最も原始的なイメージである稲穂のシンボルとしても使用した。

窓から離れた場所はダークトーンが支配し、昼でも照明効果を感じられる様な落ち着ける空間を演出、窓際には外光の差し込むカウンター席やカーテンウォールの開放感を楽しめるベンチエリアなどを用意、そのコントラストが全体を引き締めることを狙った。

また、食堂は朝から夜遅くまで様々な時間帯で使用される為、日が落ちてからの雰囲気も重視した照明プランとした。
