The design challenge was to breathe life into the reception lounge and open collaboration area while also integrating the IT team into the space. The IT help desk is located within a tunnel between the open space and workspace.
Design inspiration came from 1930's art deco which is still a hallmark of Shanghai today. Sleek, modernised deco design forms were integrated, especially in the curved tunnel that divides the space. A striking teal velvet covers the curved, meandering banquette that neatly frames the building elevation and views beyond.
