ACB living by Lighthouse is a dynamic Co-working space that activates the urban fabric

Set within the small island town of Iki in the Nagasaki prefecture, Japanese firm Lighthouse designed ACB Living as a Co-working hub comprising cafe, remote-working rooms and off-site training spaces for companies.

In response to the emerging problem of vacant plots, the design program of ACB living is dispersed across the town through new construction and small-scale interventions, encouraging spontaneous interactions and achieving a sense of familiarity.

The interior areas at both levels are kept to a minimum while expanding the outdoor space towards the rear end of the site resulting in a low footprint and efficient energy consumption. On account of the local contextual needs and climatic conditions, the form explores passive energy solutions to optimise the site fully.

Abutted by buildings on its three sides, the structure proposes a barrierless double-height outdoor space that facilitates site-specific airflow. Cloaked in agricultural sheets, the design enables a controlled amount of light and wind.

The flowing sheets blur the boundaries and establish a seamless connection with the outside. Thus, the project results in a symbiotic relationship with the public realm where the people and the design entity flourish.
