Spatial Concept Design

Spatial Concept

AB Rogers x Nendo

For a second year Spatial Design class, my team worked on redesigning spaces within a contemporary building located in the heart of historic Gastown with two theoretical clients in mind; AB Rogers and Nendo. We were tasked with creating a ground floor showroom for Nendo and a working office space for AB Rogers.

Were given a real physical space in the downtown Gastown area as a precedent. We worked around real world physical constrants of location, neighbourhood and established culture of the space. Working within a time frame of 2 weeks, we were challenged to create individual spaces for two very opposite design philosophies. Renders were modelled using Cinema4D and imported into photoshop to add details, such as furniture and scale people.

THE CLIENTS:

LEFT: AB Rogers. Ab Rogers is a London-based designer known for a wide-ranging practice informed by his lyrical imagination. Creative director Ab Rogers has a signature style defined by playfulness, colour and motion and his practice embraces new materials and technologies in its commitment to making everyday life a place of surprise and delight.

RIGHT: Nendo. Under the direction of architect Oki Sato, the group that gathers under the name Nendo has represented a cultured and refined alternative to self-celebrative design since 2002. “Nendo” means “clay” in Japanese; the job of the Nendo group in the field of interior architecture, furniture and graphics is to be as pliable and flexible as clay. In a just few short years and running on big personality and unmatched determination in the field of modern design, Nendo has already received several international credits.
