on the 3rd floor of an office building in fujiyoshida, japan, taku sakaushi (O.F.D.A.) has designed a wooden coworking space allowing for the privacy required for during concentrated working process, as well as a calm break with a nice view. the visitors are provided with desks along the panoramic windows overlooking mount fuji, and a multifunctional unit in the center of the space featuring a reception and break areas, lockers, and separate booths.
the desks by the windows feature vertical wooden screens with small sliding doors — thus, the users can choose whether they want to enjoy the view or close the screen and hide from the sunlight. this area adds a little bit of color in the minimalist interior — the doors and legs of the tables are painted in blue, green, and yellow.
the architects have elevated the break area in the center of the room by 900 mm to create a separate space where visitors can enjoy the panoramic view of mount fuji and its surroundings without other elements of the interior interrupting. the rest of the unit is elevated by additional 1.100 mm and various functional spaces, including a reception area, individual booths, a meeting space, and a phone booth are provided under it.
