The space on this site is irregular and curvilinear due to layout of exterior wall the building. Thus a curve line design was applied to the concept of this case.
Moreover, the owner of the project is an investment consulting company and their main business is in financial industry. The Chinese believe that water can bring fortune and luck, so the designer has tried to create a theme of flowing water which is finally transformed into flow lines.
Firstly, the exterior wall near the public corridor was demolished and re-arranged into three function areas: (1) Lobby and reception area (2) Conference room (3) Coffee Shop.
A flow line was applied to the surround of these three areas, which also served as entrance to the external. The company is structured into six departments. Six lines have been used to symbolize them. Each line extends from the ceiling down to the floor with the department logo upon it, and then, finally to the inside of Chairman Room.
Inside the Chairman Room a sandblasted acrylic bookcase was combined with LED lights to create luminous and flowing lines, which is the visual focus of the area. In addition, a U shape platform of coffee travertine was built at the position of chairman desk to highlight the standing of the chairman.
