Link Office Hub
Duration: 2 semesters
Project Location: 604 King St. West, Downtown Toronto
Problem: The issue of physical spine pressure that is in a typical sedentary office setting.
Concept: The concept of movement & connection grew from the problem. I intend to design an environment that stimulates the flow of physical movement throughout the space to facilitate a social interactive environment.
Solution: This thesis project, "Link Office Hub" is to create a community co-working utopia, which provides local small businesses a place to jump outside of their original tiny cubical office. It is intended for those who wish to work at a larger office environment, and have more social communications with other professionals in the community. The concept of movement grows from the issue of physical spine pressure that is in a typical sedentary office setting. I intend to design an environment that stimulates the flow of physical movement throughout the space to facilitate a healthy working environment.
