Bring people together, generate exchange of ideas and collision of inspirations, so as to motivate innovation and changes -- this is an embodiment of the spirit of this technology firm and the original intention of our design. In this case, the design abandons the traditional closed office format, and throws away the old-fashioned layout and decorations. Defined by simplicity and technology, it goes without losing comfort and warmth. The designer turns the multi-functional area into a daily shared environment for work, leisure, thinking and discussion, creating “accidental collision” and “accidental encounter”. In terms of space shaping approach, it creates the multi-functional area mainly through elaborate consideration of various spatial communication paths. The designer creates a brand-new design concept based on the characteristics of the city of Shenzhen, as well as the firm’s localization in Shenzhen. The extended lighting styling is full of technology. The smooth curve of flows and twists, created with the contour lines of the landscape terrains, makes the whole lobby more attractive, presenting a dynamic impression for visitors and employees. More people-friendly design puts the employees in a more comfortable environment. The informal meeting area adopts large French windows to introduce natural light and outdoor landscape - giving employees another office experience. The slopes are to help the employees stretch themselves after hours of sitting during the break, and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and compassionate care in the venue. In the connected space, the multi-function tea room is placed at one end, decorated with green plants and POSTER. Storage cabins and hidden trash cans are provided at both sides of the bar counter, creating a clean and tidy rest area for the employees. To meet the work pattern of the firm, a variety of conference rooms are designed for various forms of communication, including private conference room, large conference room, small conference room, and multi-tier three-dimensional conference space. The three-dimensional conference space mainly provides diversified communication experiences. The employees can find quiet upper corners to stay alone, or have interesting communications with colleagues in the upper and lower tiers, which arouse fancy inspirations.
