The project was to transform a shopping mall space, measuring 100,000sqft (9,290sqm) over two floors, into a large office workplace for the creative agency Cheil Worldwide, in Sanlitun, Beijing.
The brief was to create an alternative work place, in two phases, that would encourage connectivity and social interactions across the different departments to create one holistic company. The atmosphere was to feel domestic and comfortable, with a variety of different workspace types, from open to semi-private and private.
