Ivanhoe Capital Corporation

Beijing | 450 sqm | 2018
Ivanhoe Capital Corporation, a financial services firm specializing in minerals and energy investments, requested a thoughtful consideration of space and brand expression in the design of its new office in the Beijing World Financial Center. At the entrance, a back-lit super graphic wall incorporates mountains and river valleys, providing a metaphor for the profound, confident, and entrepreneurial spirit of the firm. The interior design throughout is refined, straightforward, and transparent. The application of system glass partitions, neutral color fabric wall panels, and warm wood patterned vinyl flooring create a professional, bright, and welcoming feeling while evoking the perception of openness in spaces that may otherwise seem compact. The conference room utilizes a movable, reconfigurable partition, enabling the area to serve as a multi-functional space. With efficient use of space as a welcome challenge of the project, the company’s cultural wall, pantry, copy area, and emergency passage are connected together.
