International design firm OMA has recently completed the new office design for China Gold (Asia) Limited
Overlooking the breathtaking Victoria Harbour from the heart of the financial district, the new office for China Gold (Asia) Limited is defined by its prime view and the client's own art collection. Located in the iconic Lippo Centre, OMA has designed this office with an art gallery in mind, balancing practicality and aesthetic.
The space has been divided into two zones. The first is the Visitors' Zone, which is located right by the entrance. With a ceiling that is adorned with an abstract pattern of perforated panels, the space allows the harbour view and daylight to penetrate through the meeting room to the reception area. Fabrics have been specially selected to emphasise a soft feeling in the meeting room: corrugated felt for wallcovering with high-pile carpet for the flooring.
The Working Zone layout is a clear departure from the traditional office allowing shared views for both the open workstations and the manager rooms. The exposed ceiling is painted in white, the same color as the painted wall and resin flooring, and together they serve as the backdrop for artworks. A bright atmosphere has been achieved through the edition of glass partitions with gradient films, while natural plywood furniture sits neutrally in the white space.
