Clifford Chance Hong Kong Workplace Interior Design by Circa ia

Home > Winners > #47442


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Clifford Chance Hong Kong

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Workplace Interior Design

INSPIRATION:
there were 2 main inspirations. the building, Jardine House, is iconic in Hong Kong, with the characteristic round windows, & we wanted to emphasise their presence & respect in the interior the exterior finish & division of panel. Our second driver was to give the staff a place to come together on both each floor, & between the 4 floors. To give an individuality to each floor we brought in hand made wallpapers from Paperflavor, Camilla Meijer, Eco, & Walnutwallpaper.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Clifford Chance is located in 'Jardine House' overlooking Hong Kong harbor in the Central district. With this project we wanted to bring a fresh face to their workspace, introducing newly developed glazing with concealed sliding office doors to pass the harbor light back into the space. Custom storage solutions & high performance sit-stand desking were added to give all staff good ergonomics. To give a central social thread, we developed a pantry per floor that you can see in these photographs.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The 4 floors are connected by an internal staircase, & reaching each floor their is both a cohesion in the use of custom timber slating, & yet an individuality by the introduction of a very individual handmade wallpaper per floor.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project changed the working environment from a 4 floor space with no centre or open views, to one with a flood of daylight & connectivity.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Interior Space and Exhibition Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The client operates an open door policy for their private offices. With this in mind we developed, with an Asia wide glass wall system company, a glass door that can slide away to the wall system & in essence no longer be perceived as a door. Therefore creating a room that felt more an open space than a room unless confidentiality was required.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The project was 50,000sqft spread over 4 floors & took 1 year to complete in 4 phases.

TAGS:
workplace, legal, hong kong, clifford chance, collaboration, office design

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Our research focused on the technical aspects of the office wall & doors systems, the way to create a high acoustic value to space, trialing sit0-stand desking for durability & speed; & locating the best contemporary handmade wallpapers to support artists in that field.

CHALLENGE:
The creation of a glass door that can truly change it's apparent purpose to being apart of the general wall, be able to lock, & have a concealed handle was the greatest challenge.
