The design is an office interior for a commodities and finance trading company, based in Shenzhen and Hong Kong. For their corporate headquarter in Shenzhen, we were asked to design the project for a cellular office organization within a high-profile building in a prime area of the city.

Located in a central core office, the floor is separated in units for lease and a main office which houses two sub companies of the corporate holding. With two entrances on the other side of the core and 20 over office and meeting rooms, the orientation within the space is rather confusing. 

We designed the project by putting the main focus on ceiling and floorplan as an enhancement and representation of the circulation system. The ceiling is guided by light troughs which lead to publicly accessible rooms. The floor is a direct reflection of the ceiling with rough and glossy surfaces. 

To differentiate the two entrances to the office, the character of the finishes transforms from metallic to organic, from corian, aluminium and glass to wood and leather.
