Chocolate Factory- Design Hub
Over the past two years the all too familiar working space has become an alien landscape. Customs and traditions vital for collaboration, creativity and innovation vanished overnight without a physical space to exist in. The concept Darkness into Light proposes breaking through those dark times and bringing light and familiarity to the workplace. My design was inspired by the optics theory and the studies about light. By researching light behaviour and the transformative power of light I was able to conceptualised a dynamic, modern, and exciting design. One of my main concerns for this project was the lack of natural light inside the Chocolate Factory building. As a solution to that, I designed a void that goes all the way up to the top of the building, flooding the space with natural light. The layout was also changed to create an open space to promote engagement and collaboration, and a space which light can travel easily through. Clear white walls, wood panels, polished concrete flooring and the use of glass will modernize this iconic building and will guarantee the serenity and cosiness needed for creatives.
