a test 004

A test 004 –
1 UNIT: built space
OCCUPANCY: private office
TYPE(s): architecture, renovation
AR/TIFACT(s): 04

IDEAS:
This is WeWork’s first Toronto location, 240 Richmond St. W. I thought about rotating the view to start looking at the interior fit-out initially, but opted for the envelope view instead. The reason for that being that in an interior fit-out project, understanding the base building and envelope would come first – knowing the structure, existing mechanical or plumbing routes, materials, etc. For example, they found an excessive amount of asbestos in the ceilings that they had to get rid of before even making any headway with the fit-out.

Once there is an understanding of the shell, then we can run right into the interior. Perhaps this test can have a part 2 where I look at the interior.

Standard
