Members of our Healthcare team traveled to the United States to receive an award as a winner of the International Interior Design Association (IIDA) 2016 Healthcare Interior Design Competition. This competition honors and celebrates outstanding originality and excellence in the design and furnishings of healthcare interior spaces. Robarts Spaces won the category of Ambulatory Care Centers – Outpatient Clinics for the Jiangsu Immigration & International Travel Hygiene Center in Nanjing, China.
“The winners of this year’s IIDA Healthcare Interior Design Competition created exceptionally designed environments that are positively impacting the wellbeing of the patients treated in these facilities as well as their families and those who work there. With more research showing the link between design and positive patient outcomes, these designers are making a tremendous impact on the healthcare industry,” said IIDA Executive Vice President and CEO Cheryl S. Durst, Hon. FIIDA, LEED AP.
The jury panel reviewing this year’s competition included Michelle Clark, IIDA, RID, LEED AP (Senior Associate, Rees Associates Inc.); Suzen L.

RS Presents “Office Without Boundaries” at the 2016 Asia Workspace Innovation Summit
Thursday, September 01, 2016Read moreRead less
On 1 September, at the 2016 Asia Workspace Innovation Summit in Shanghai, Silvia Minciarelli and Yaching Hsueh, Robarts Spaces Creative Director and Partner (Interior Design), respectively, gave a keynote presentation on “Office Without Boundaries” highlighting Robarts Spaces’ experience and learnings with Activity-Based Working (ABW) design.
Their joint presentation, itself a symbol of the collaboration at the heart of ABW, featured four Robarts Spaces projects with ABW design for a range of clients including an international management consultancy, a premier China-based law firm, and international product manufacturing company. Various ABW design considerations and approaches were illustrated and shared. Interwoven through these project overviews was a poignant story of an employee who transitioned from a traditional to ABW office and discovered not only a new physical environment but a greater sense of community and connectedness in the space.
"A 10-Year Legacy of Igniting Passions" with Ogilvy & Mather
Friday, January 08, 2016Read moreRead less
On 7 January 2016, the Robarts Spaces team joined our client, Ogilvy & Mather, for the opening of "A 10-Year Legacy of igniting passions", in celebration of 10 years since we completed the O Gallery and the first Ogilvy office in Beijing’s Huali Building. The exhibition was opened by Miles Young, the global Chairman and CEO of Ogilvy, who also opened the O Gallery and Ogilvy office 10 years ago.
Prior to the opening, we joined Ogilvy’s Shenan Chuang in an interview with two design magazines, “缤纷SPACE" and "DESIGN WIRE", who also toured the newly remodeled Ogilvy office spaces—this being an ongoing and phased program of work with Ogilvy to entirely refresh their Beijing offices. The new workspaces are an excellent example of Activity Based Working (ABW), including 8 work cafes- one on each floor—under the concept of O-Café, as well as a refresh of the contemporary Chinese cultural elements and creativity that are at the heart of Beijing Ogilvy’s DNA.
