HUB112:

Architects 49’s (A49) 49 HUB 112 project looked inward in renovating a multi-purpose recreation area that not only increased company event and exhibit space, but also fostered internal interaction between its four associated companies and a forged a connection with the local community. The 49 HUB 112 warehouse is home to four 49Group companies, including A49(Phuket); an architectural design company, G49, and GA49; graphic designers and Li-zenn Publishing. Although each firm is constructed with unique functional requirements, they are intertwined through a single design vision. Architects emphasised the natural beauty of the original wooden roof structure and created spaces that fit the roof and beam span. A variety of specialised areas are incorporated, including reading, meeting, medical, fitness, music and recreation rooms. The warehouse entrance greets guests with a matte black steel staircase that guides visitors to the upper-level multipurpose area. Each company is separated by thin glass on a steel frame which allows each company to be visually connected. Lighting is composed of black steel pipe and randomly overlapping LED lights.

HUB116:

Warehouse 116 is a refurbished storehouse turned open office space that houses three associated companies of 49 Group: IA49 (Interior Architects 49), L49 (Landscape Architects 49), and LD49 (49 Lighting Design Consultants). With extended working hours plaguing the lives of designers, it is important to create a space that is not only aesthetically sound and functional to the nature of work, but one that also promotes a creative atmosphere and fosters an inviting workspace. With extended working hours plaguing the lives of designers, it is important to create a space that is not only aesthetically sound and functional to the nature of work, but one that also promotes a creative atmosphere and fosters an inviting workspace. Designed and used by IA49 (Interior Architects 49), Warehouse 116 is a refurbished storehouse turned open office space that houses three associated companies of 49 Group. The 50-year-old structure, oldest in the Warehouse 26 community, boasts time-honoured wooden columns and beams that capture every detail of its history as a Fiat assembling factory. The design choice to preserve this feature in contrast to the new metal and steelwork ensures a clean-cut yet raw charm. White bricks line the walls, cement with acid-finish covers the floor, and custom-made galvanised steel pipes add to the eclectic furniture. With the use of mesh windows dividing the open space. The combined use of natural and artificial light creates a balance of an effective working environment and a relaxed atmosphere. Side-skylight ensures natural light throughout the day without drawing heat, and direct-skylight in the materials room allows for proper material review. The materials room is at the core of interior work; creative energy is evident in the spacious room lined with vibrant fabrics, refined marbles, and colourful laminate samples among other design materials. The added function of an automatic door allows for easy access in and out of the room when carrying assembled boards.
