    MS West Interior Design Concepts MS West Interior Design Concepts Presentation Transcript

    • INTERIOR DESIGN CONCEPTS Schematic Design Phase 60% Submission Microsoft Beijing West Campus April 4, 2008
    • About the 60% Schematic Design Submittal: • This submission is issued to gain user responses and comments for consideration and incorporation into the 100% submittal. • This feedback is critical for further development and to maintain project schedule goals. • The presentation that follows covers two main areas: Interior Design Concepts and Public Areas space design (floors 1-3). • We encourage all comments though we specifically desire ones dealing with the following issues: 1. Interior Planning and Design Concepts – Connectivity. Main Street, Side Street and Neighborhood. 2. Main Street - open and closed collaboration. 3. Campus Identity 4. Public Areas - circulation, image and character. 5. CTC, MRP, Food Service - functionality and connectivity. Thank you.

    • Interior Design Concept Assumptions: • This submittal includes previously presented material along with specific user input and refinements and represents a basis for design in future phases. • Individual user input that resulted in programmatic conflicts have not been addressed in this submittal. (Example: location of Learning Center) The 100% Schematic Design submission will include programmatic refinements based on blocking and stacking criteria for the entire campus. • The Typical Floor Plan is shown for concept development. It does not include specific user requirements based on stacking and blocking. • Further schematic design development will include input from disciplines such as lighting, acoustics, and audio/visual. • The floor plans shown in 8.1 – 8.4 represent program design areas approved at the end of core and shell design development.
    • Interior Design Concept Questions: 1. Design Concepts of Main Street, Side Street and Neighborhood were presented. Did these concepts achieve the goal of connectivity? 2. Is the Microsoft brand identity appropriately conveyed in this campus? 3. Two options for Sky Garden character were proposed. Do you have a preference? Are there any other relevant ways to distinguish these spaces? 4. Do the Public Spaces depicted convey the appropriate character for this project? 5. Please provide specific comments on the Lobby, MPR, CTC and Food Service areas. 6. Please review and comment on floor plans 8.1 – 8.4. Thank You
