G-Art Design International has recently completed the interior design of Hongqiao World Centre’s Office Building in Shanghai

Inspired to create an environmentally friendly work space, the office incorporates a “green, ecological, energy-efficient, intelligent” design philosophy. The interior turns the idea of the traditional office concept on its head to create a harmonious relationship between people, construction and nature.

In the reception area, a curved doorway mimics the petal design approach that can be seen through the Aedas-designed architecture of the building. A backdrop of luminescent metal mesh has also been use in this area to create an interesting juxtaposition with the accompanying glass fixtures.

Reminiscent of a glass box, the meeting room employs a large, frameless glass partition to emphasise the patio and outdoor landscape. Embedded light strips on the glass help the interior to reflect a certain air of modernity.

Leather, soft cloth and the use of a large green carpet to echo the lawn outside, help to create a relaxed area for staff. Embedded soft seats improve space utilisation and create a new type of employee communication environment.
