Our first impression of the client was a young group of male professionals who holds a variety of businesses, one of which is a prominent concrete plant in China. So we developed our design based on the materiality of concrete, its fluidity, varying tones of greys and texture, to create a sense of masculinity, style and permanence.





Our concept for this project is an exhibit on exploring the materiality of concrete - its earthy and tactile nature, its fluidity that creates both mass and permanence. We designed all areas with a concrete grey palette in mind and build layers on top of it. At the entrance corridor and lobby, we based our palette on concrete grey and outlined the entrance door by a slanted curvilinear bronze metal trim, making the entrance not only looking wider and more striking, but also offering a glimpse to the waiting lobby.





The oval-shaped waiting lobby is flanked to the right from the entrance, creating this fluid bubble that leads to the big meeting room, small meeting room and office area. The flooring is a concrete based terrazzo which has a subtle medium grey as a base color, and is mixed with white marble pebbles to give a luxurious boutique layer.





The conceptual motif of the big meeting room is based on the fluid nature of the materiality of concrete. Each 3-dimensional curvilinear wall and ceiling panel is custom designed and cut to mimic concrete’s mutability for organic forms as a built element.





Concrete grey is the tone we have set for since the beginning of the project. But to build up another layer of youth, energy and dynamics, we have added in the 3 colors from the company’s logo. In the lobby, we have a lush indigo blue velvet sofa; in the office corridor, we applied indigo blue brushstrokes onto the carpet tile; mustard yellow is used in the open office cubicle, and in the small meeting room, we have a crimson red sofa to add some excitement to the space.
