Lujiazui is a representative conception of Shanghai. It is not only a financial centre, but also a district abutting upon Huangpu River which is unique to the city. This office is designed for a organic agricultural investment company who requests a multiple functional workplace including exhibition, visiting and negotiation to show their main direction of management.
The office is on the 19th floor of a high-rise building, when looking out of the window, beautiful views of both sides of the river can be enjoyed. Acres of farmland are put into the office to create multiple choices of paths inside and eyes can look clean through the space.
The green vegetation is planted in four boxes of varying sizes. They are arranged in horizontal or vertical way in the office. A variety of activities are inspired by those boxes combined with different function spaces. Emerging plants LED fill light and automatic irrigation techniques are used to simulate outdoor light and humidity conditions. The environment would not only meet the needs of plant growth, but also remind people a green open garden more than a working place.
Aromas and even edible plants change the entire office scent. The lightness and floating feeling of the reception desk and planting ponds are created by white painted steel sheets and acrylics. The appropriate volume of the office fitments made the planting area more important.
The conference room at the end of the corner has the best view. Bamboo flooring combined with grass green velvet carpet give people obviously feelings like walking on a field when they enter the conference room. In this office, people along with plants and the river view can be perceived and realized by each other.
