Space of Mind

Studio Puisto

A PEACE OF MIND

Space of Mind is a modern cabin that acts as a dedicated space to think, recharge and unwind – somewhere we can find our own peace of mind. Through a modular system, Space of Mind can serve as anything from a spare bedroom to a gym to a home office with the flexibility to be placed nearly anywhere in the world.


心靈的平靜

Space of Mind 是一個現代化的小屋,可作為思考、充電和放鬆的專用空間——在這裡我們可以找到自己內心的平靜。 通過模組化系統,Space of Mind 可以用作任何東西,從備用臥室到健身房再到家庭辦公室,幾乎可以靈活地放置在世界任何地方。

AWAY FROM HOME - AT HOME

As a concept, Space of Mind was initially developed in response to the on-going pandemic. With many of us now spending significantly more time at home than ever before, our collective notion of a ‘home away from home’ needed to be redefined to fit our newly limited range for travel. No matter whether it is placed in a backyard, rooftop terrace or even the nearby forest, Space of Mind acts as a spatial solution that fosters a similar experience – just without leaving home.


離開家 - 如同在家

作為一個概念,心靈空間最初是為了應對持續的疫情流行而開發的。 現在我們許多人在家裡度過的時間比以往任何時候都多,我們需要重新定義“家之外的家”的集體概念,以適應我們新一代有限的旅行範圍。 無論是放置在後院、屋頂露台還是附近的森林中,Space of Mind 都可以作為一種空間解決方案來培養類似的體驗——只需足不出戶即可。

Yet how we find that peace of mind looks different for all of us. Therefore, an integral aspect to the design of Space of Mind is its versatility and adaptability. The outer wooden structure acts as a blank slate while the interior is adjustable to individual preferences, creating a space that can manifest into a gym for one and into a home office for another. Within the overall modular system, the custom furniture attaches to the wooden structure on rungs, giving the freedom to tailor the space as desired over time.


然而,對於我們所有人來說,我們如何找到內心的平靜似乎是不同的。 因此,Space of Mind 設計的一個不可或缺的方面是其多功能性和適應性。 外部的木頭結構就像一塊空白的石板,而內部則可以根據個人喜好進行調整,創造一個可以體現為一個人的健身房和另一個人的家庭辦公室的空間。 在整個模組化系統中,定製家具附在梯級上的木結構上,隨著時間的推移,可以根據需要自由定製空間。

ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN

The overall architectural footprint of Space of Mind comes in at just under 10m2. Space- efficient and compact, a guiding emphasis within the design was to similarly express how even a minimal space with only the essentials can offer us the headspace to enjoy what matters most. With less, we can feel more.


建築設計

Space of Mind 的整體建築佔地面積不到 10 平方米。 節省空間和緊湊,設計中同樣地的一個指導重點是表達即使是只有必需品的最小空間也可以為我們提供頂部空間來享受最重要的東西。 用更少的東西,我們可以感受到更多。

In line with this, the structure is not insulated, connecting us closer to the raw, natural elements and ever-changing weather conditions outside. As a mass timber construction using ecologically sourced Finnish wood, Space of Mind can withstand even the harshest of arctic winters while remaining aesthetically cozy and nest-like inside through warm wooden tones and colors.


與此一致,該結構沒有阻隔,使我們更接近原始的自然元素和外面不斷變化的天氣條件。 作為使用生態來源的芬蘭木材的大型木頭結構建築,Space of Mind 甚至可以承受最嚴酷的北極冬季,同時通過溫暖的木質色調和顏色保持美觀舒適和巢狀內部。


To make Space of Mind available to even the most remote of locations, it was strategically planned to be light enough for transportation by crane or helicopter with a resilient foundation that supports almost any site. This, in turn, adds to its versatility, ultimately creating an opportunity where we have the freedom to tailor a spatial experience to our exact needs and wishes during a time when our entire systems of living have seemingly turned upside down.


為了讓即使是最偏遠的地方也能使用 Space of Mind,它被策略性地規劃為重量夠輕,以便通過起重機或直升機運輸,並具有支撐幾乎任何地點的彈性地基。 這反過來又增加了它的多功能性,最終創造了一個機會,在我們整個生活系統看似顛倒的時候,我們可以自由地根據我們的確切需求和願望定製空間體驗。

INFLUENCES AND WHAT INSPIRES OUR WORK/ARCHITECTURE

Our design process is grounded in both the needs and wishes of our clients as well as the unique character that represents a place. Rather than just define a

site by its physical properties, we seek to also unearth its intangible, atmospheric qualities to see how our architecture could best complement it. Consequently, nature and its representations strongly influence our work and we are continuously exploring innovative ways through which we can source inspiration from the natural world around us.

Both aesthetically and structurally speaking, our architecture maintains roots in both traditional and modern Nordic architectural practices that we then reinterpret to adapt to a new place and time. We recognize environmental and historical context to be essential and always prioritize this input within the design process to ensure that our architecture remains cognizant and respectful.

We further feel that an unwavering attention to subtle details can have a resounding effect in architecture – our design decisions do not always need to be immediately obvious. In line with this, one of the defining elements of our work is the creation of engaging spatial experiences that are inclusive of everyone. Whether through sensory- rich spatial transitions or seamlessly efficient user paths, we carefully study how we can positively impact the most people with the smallest choices.

Above all, we believe constructing in a sustainable manner pays off. Especially now more so than ever before, it is imperative that architects, along with the construction industry, take responsibility and progress towards a more sustainable way of building for the future. In doing so, our contributions to the built environment will be able to adapt and outlive us in a way that serve future generations far beyond the needs of today.

This mindset towards sustainability has led us to become experts in ecological construction, sustainable materials, and energy solutions. It is something we approach holistically, seeing it as a sum of many factors that involve everything from living habits to ecosystems to technical applications. We approach and evaluate all design decisions in pursuit of a more sustainable outcome and readily share our solutions not only with our clients, but the greater global community as well.

Together as a studio, we are relentlessly committed to both finding and challenging the most harmonious balance between these defining components within our work to deliver a truly exceptional user experience for all. It ultimately frames our vision and goal that ecological, economic and social ambitions come together in our projects –

without compromising on a beautiful and functional end result.
