Light Earth Designs一个为独特的、有才华的个人设计的独特办公环境。新办公室专为著名的美国商人、慈善家和卢旺达发展委员会前主席乔·里奇而设计。

Light Earth DesignsA unique office environment for a unique and talented group of individuals. The new office fit out for the Famous American Business man, Philanthropist and former head of the Rwandan Development Board, Joe Ritchie.



他在芝加哥的新办公场所——一栋玻璃幕墙的写字楼,很可能是另一种传统的无菌办公环境。他求助于Peter Rich建筑事务所和Light Earth Designs创造了一个既崇高又开放的环境,但又允许谨慎的工作区域。我们的理念是创建一个美丽的、充满活力的、高耸的土瓦拱腹,由横跨在现有钢结构之间的三角形拱顶组成。在此基础上,由环保的“甲虫受损松树”制成的不同形状和高度的小型建筑物将包含工作区域。

His new premises, a floor of a glass clad speculative office block in Chicago could well be another conventional, sterile office environment. He turned to Peter Rich Architects and Light Earth Designs to create an environment that felt lofty and open but allowed for discreet working areas. Our concept is to create a beautiful, dynamic and lofty earth tiled soffit, formed of triangular vaults spanning between the existing steel structure. Under this, aedicules of different shapes and heights, made of environmentally friendly ‘beetle damaged pine’ will contain working areas.




All materials are sourced to be natural, sustainable and low maintenance. The fit out will create a space of calm and dignity, a canvas for Joe to fill with his own fascinating autobiography.



拱形结构是用铺设在CNC切割面乳胶底座模具上的土砖建造的。该模具是通过对反向模型进行半比例三维扫描,并将信息转化为3D CAD模型来制作的。CAD模型包含了模具制造所需的所有信息。

The vaulting is constructed using earth tiles laid onto a CNC cut faceted latex backing mould. The mould is created by 3D scanning a reverse model at half scale and converting the information into a 3D CAD model. The CAD model contains all information required for fabrication of the mould.
