Adrian Chan Design & Research Office (A:DRO) is a studio that strives for aesthetic and usage ingenuity in the realm of the interior. We define Ingenuity as inventive moves that embrace the opportunities of a project to reach an exceptional outcome. Aesthetic as a fundamental need for humans to be in contact with beauty in their spatial environment. Trend vs. originality is a false dichotomy - the definition of beauty should surface naturally via the client/designer relationship based on cultural, perceptual and experiential concerns. Usage as the performative qualities of space, whether it be providing physical & emotional comfort or encouraging sociability

ABOUT

The client, an HR advisory & training firm, needed an office that could communicate openness and could facilitate different interactions from team huddles to training events. The space, however, presented some challenges: low ceilings (7 ft 4) and a small enclosure (41sqm). Referencing the Prairie School, cabinetry are conceived as a series of floating functional blocks embedded along a gallery-like wall inviting the occupant to follow along. Other areas then allow for flexible programming whilst maximizing spatial efficiency.
