Our cities are typically occupied by modern boxes curtained by transparent glass walls. It allows light and view to pass through to the depth of the office space, but it only works when the space is undivided but more often than not the spaces along the curtain walls are usually occupied by manager and conference rooms. How do we bring the similar quality to the open plan office if they equally deserve the enjoyment of the free elements?
We constructed what we called a double curtain. A set of metal screen wall meandering through the whole office in parallel to the existing curtain wall subdivides the space into the room zone and the open plan zone. This double curtain acts exactly like its counterpart to allow light and view and maintain its necessary function as a demarcation. It also incorporates the storage, pantry, signages, and doors. What is being filtered are the activities but not the free elements. For those who work in the open office, you got the illusion of a curtain side sensation.
