Design for Adventures at Work

Emilia Nuzzaci

From being surrounded by mountains and forest, to urban culture, the designs of these offices create alluring experiences at the workplace.

Besides ecological zen studies, another important theme of XUPIN OFFICE - Xupin Space Design Limited Company is environmental protection. The design remains minimalist, there is not too much decoration on walls, and old boards are widely used instead of traditional emulsion paint and wallpaper. Walking into XUPIN, the smell is fresh, not the pungent smell of paint, emphasising the wonders and interests of nature, and not the dull atmosphere of the office.

The Matrix Office - Matrix Design is located in Shenzhen, China, and is a new office space design project of Matrix Design. In this continued, restructured and representational space design, white walls and wood veneer with warm color and ruggedly steel frame material multi level texture contrast, combined with gray cement block their unique visual impact. In ornate natural space still shows unique charm, this is our new interpretation way for office space.

O+A’s concept was to create a floor-by-floor evocation of natural landscapes, in effect to turn a trip up the elevator into a virtual trip from Baja to the Pacific Northwest. The idea behind Slack - Studio O+A was to suggest not just a variety of topographical and botanical contexts, but to capture, as well, the experiential links between hiking a wilderness trail, and work.The unique configurations of each floor at Slack echo the mental stimulation—and need for community— that comes with taking a new path.

When a company as rooted in popular culture as McDonald’s moves its headquarters after 47 years, it’s not just a momentous business decision - it’s a statement.  To make the move an architectural event worthy of its business impact, McDonald’s hired Studio O+A and IA Interior Architects to turn a lean, light-infused, shell into a celebration of the company’s spirit; McDonald's Headquarters - Studio O+A and IA Interior Architects. The diversity of workstyles represented here mirrors McDonald’s large embrace and illustrates the power of place to bring people together.

The interior of the  Moscow L'Oréal Moscow Office - IND architects has combined two major features reflecting the company’s character and relevant tendencies. First, it’s a sensitive interior where each detail indicates its association with beauty industry; second, planning structure allows business processes run as smoothly and effectively as possible. The office is designed in Agile format; portable furniture allows change arrangement of workplaces depending on team requirements.
