The design section of project, titled "Lofty Mountains and Flowing Water," explores the concept of enhancing accidental encounters among workers within the office space, inspired by the story of "Lofty Mountains And Flowing Water." This ancient tale, symbolizing the deep connection and understanding between two individuals, perfectly aligns with the project's goal to foster a workplace environment that promotes spontaneous interactions, leading to increased knowledge work productivity. Here’s an English rendition of your design concept and layout, emphasizing the metaphorical and functional integration of this cultural narrative into the office design.

In the context of repurposing school architecture for a next-generation shared office environment, the project integrates the sensory experiences of sight, sound, and touch into the workspace design.

Incorporating sensory experiences into the design of shared office spaces derived from repurposed school buildings creates an environment that not only facilitates accidental encounters among workers but also enhances their well-being and productivity. By thoughtfully engaging the senses of sight, sound, and touch, this project aims to create a workspace that supports relaxed, efficient, and intellectually stimulating work environments. Through such a multi-sensory approach, the project endeavors to foster a workplace culture that values both the physical and psychological comfort of its occupants, ultimately contributing to a more dynamic and productive office ecosystem.
