Winners of two certificates of Excellence at Perspective’s A&D Trophy Awards last year, Linehouse has unveiled its design for WeWork Shanghai With locations in across the globe including Hong Kong, Sydney and Mexico City, co-working space provider WeWork has recently launched its China flagship location in Weihai Lu, Shanghai. Surrounded by an old residential area, Weihai Lu is nestled in a turn-of-the-century brick building: a former opium factory and artist residence. 10.Linehouse-WeWork Weihai Lu-hi In collaboration with WeWork, Linehouse celebrated the grandeur of the building in its design, to create whimsical ambience throughout the space. Upon arrival, guests pass through an old lane-way, framed by a traditional Chinese arch. The lane walls are painted pink and the floor pink concrete, while above, lights are suspended for theatrical appeal. At reception, the counter is clad in heritage wood panelling, surrounded by a concrete base, and behind sits a neon sign reading 'Ring For Service'. The existing steel structure inside the building is painted ivy green, with a new black metal and black stained OSB handrail leaner wrapping the triple height space, allowing guests to see activities below. A staircase weaves through the circulation space connecting all three levels of the front of house, and this is clad in triangular pieces of oak wood, with one side painted in hues of blue. 15. Linehouse-WeWork Weihai Lu-lo A bespoke lighting installation is suspended in the triple height space, where pink and grey cabling traverses the void, threaded through circular bronze rings which hang custom glass shades. Custom wallpapers complement the dramatic narrative, with geometric and interweaving patterns in pastel tones; these are hand-painted over in gold and green. 5.Linehouse-WeWork Weihai Lu-hi
