An Office under the Cinema? A cinema office? Or an office cinema. Such are the hybrid spaces created when these 2 spaces meet. This office venue was created to fulfil the disused spaces under the cinema, creating an opportunistic space and an office under the cinema.

As you enter into the MBO Homebase Office, you are flanked with walls of upcoming movies posters with self-illuminating lighting. The space speaks of cinema and entertainment before the reception foyer welcomes you with a cantilevering reception desk.

A junction is created at the reception to allow separation and privacy between the office staffs and visitors. As you enter deeper in the headquarter, you will encounter the Command Centre of the Cinema Operation, with its large screen and IT System. Thus the adjacent cinema becomes well connected to its Command Centre.

Similar to the adjacent cinema, the office is layered in 4 connected levels. Thus, each office departments are placed in its respective area yet open in planning allowing visual connection within the connected space. This created a layered opened floor plan. The heart of the headquarter is where food and beverages are stored, the pantry. The pantry is located between all the departments, and above the reception. Thus everyone who passes by will inadvertently brushes by the heart of the headquarter.
