Robarts Spaces Design Director Wang Yi and Senior Interior Designer Zhang Zhenru were invited as keynote speakers by the Nanjing Forum 2022 on office design trends. They shared CBC Group Shanghai Office, a recent Robarts Spaces design and build project.

CBC Group Shanghai Incubation Center challenges and explores the traditional office space, acting as a dialogue for workplace “transformation” during the Covid pandemic.

The new workplace is located in prosperous Shanghai Jing’an district. The design aspires to attract the energy from the city and create an immersive oasis in the concrete jungle. The space allows people to gather, reinvigorate, communicate, and be inspired.

Upon arrival, the guest is immediately welcomed by either a handcrafted coffee or personal greeting from a team member, in contrast to a traditional reception. Guests and employees can select their seating as they wish. Greenery is ever present. The warm palette and detailed service of this new space provides all with a feeling of comfort, rejuvenation, and healing from the fast-paced metropolis.

Across the elevator lobby, extreme simplicity and purity is purposely designed into the space. Light marble and earth tone furniture are used to give a first impression of stability, reliability and strength as the core values of CBC Healthcare Infrastructure Platform.

In the open office area, private offices are placed near the building core, allowing staff at the open workstations full access to natural light. The warmth and comfort of the entire space are achieved through design and deep cooperation with the client by putting the wellbeing of all staff and guests at the forefront.

1216 Guangzhou Design Week 1

Robarts Spaces Partner and Design Director, Yaching Hsueh, and Design Director, Wang Yi, were featured as keynote speakers at Guangzhou Design Week.

Their presentation focused on Robarts Spaces co-creation with Swire for their new Beijing workplace, sharing the extensive collaboration which began with a series of workshops with a wide range of Swire employees, leading to a design focused on collaboration, welllness, and sustainability.

Several months after the workplace was completed, Robarts Spaces conducted a rigorous Post-Occupancy Evaluation with Swire which evaluated usage, staff satisfaction, and achievement of project goals. Learnings from the Post Occupancy Evaluation are being used in the design for an expansion to the workplace, and can subsequently be used in across Swire's new workplaces.

This collaborative ongoing process of co-creation, analysis, and learning breaks through the boundaries of traditional design and build, offering innovation to both design and workplace strategy. For more information, please click here.

The well-appointed reception area features distinctive materials and colors, and unique art pieces. The boardroom’s high-quality furniture and finishes, with a split ceiling detail, compliment additional artwork featured in the space. Detail for the reception desk has an architectural quality found in the layering of stone and wood volumes.

Clear, well-integrated wayfinding, a priority for the firm to enable visitors to have a successful experience, guides clients and guests through the two-floor offices. A large café area maximizes the natural light available. The ample bar and a range of seating formats gives opportunity for staff to socialize, collaborate, relax, or engage in focused work. The café also offers beautiful views of Ditan (Temple of Earth) Park, which can be enjoyed from other areas in the offices including a window walk in elevator lobby.

In the work areas, offices are inboard, allowing all staff to enjoy the natural light, with collaboration zones incorporated into the office areas. To view the original article in Interior Design, please click here.
