AstraZeneca HK Workplace Office by Bean Buro

Home > Winners > #65268


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
AstraZeneca HK

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Workplace Office

INSPIRATION:
The design aesthetic referenced the works of renowned artist Damien Hirst, such as his Pill Cabinets and Pill Sculptures. This became an inspiration for the colourful pills like architectural volumes that performed a multitude of functions, a large pill shaped island table in the pantry, and the colourful carpets that intersect with each other to create juxtaposed boundary conditions.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Bean Buro was tasked with designing a 11,000 sqft for the world leading biopharmaceutical company AstraZeneca in Hong Kong. The new workplace would be a complete transformation of the previous traditional office into an innovative Activity Based Working philosophy, where employees will have a 100 percent flexibility to choose from a variety of work settings in the workplace depending on their activities.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The pantry space is designed as the social heart of the workplace, where employees can socialise with each other for informal meetings using the central island table, the diner style carts, as well as a 30 metres long counter along the panoramic windows that faces the Victoria Harbour.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in August 2017 in Hong Kong and finished in December 2017.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Interior Space and Exhibition Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The new environment should reflect the company culture of wellbeing and to create a strong identity to increase employee engagement. The design responded to the brief by injecting an open plan environment with different zones of activities for socialising, informal collaborations, ergonomic workstation areas, formal private meeting rooms, and various acoustic booths for focused working.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The open plan workspace is 100 percent flexible with a clean desk policy, where employees can use the personal lockers provided in the pill like architectural volumes that form the back drop of the workspace. Various break out spaces are inserted into the environment such as in wall niche seating, lounge furniture, focus booths, and meeting rooms of various sizes.

TAGS:
Bean Buro, Architecture, Interior, Residential, workplace, office, design, AstraZeneca, Hong Kong

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The lounge sofas and cafe furniture can be moved away during a company event in the pantry. Additionally, the function room is designed next to the pantry, where the operable partitions can open up to create a town hall like space for up to 250 people.

CHALLENGE:
The colours are composed of various hues of blues, green, oranges, and reds, but muted to ensure the working environment is calm and comfortable.

CLIENT/STUDIO/BRAND DETAILS
NAME:
Bean Buro

PROFILE:
The studio is an emerging architecture and interiors practice from London and Paris, led by Lorène Faure and Kenny Kinugasa-Tsui, with a team of international designers to provide architecture, interior, installation, furniture, product and masterplanning design services. The Hong Kong studio was opened in mid 2013. The diversity of the practice with its collaborators reinforces a core vision for the practice: to respond to the exchanges of global cultural development factors, incorporating overlapping design disciplines in the social, economical and technological production of urban spaces. With a strong believe in architecture being an emotional, spatial experience produced by both the user and the author, the design methodology involves the observation, speculation and analysis of contextual narratives. These narratives, or ‘stories’, generate dynamic exchanges of forces, resulting in inventive interventions inherent with humanistic delights. The practice has since produced a string of successful architecture and interior projects for reputable developers such as Grosvenor, Nan Fung Group and Sun Hung Kai, as well as commercial companies such as Uber, Leo Burnett, Warner Music, Kerry Logistics, and has been nominated for The Prodigy INDE. Awards 2017, 3 nominations in Archdaily Architecture Awards China 2017, awarded Silver Winner in the Asia Pacific Interior Design Award 2015, Runner Up in Architizer A+ Awards 2015, multiple Gold and Silver awards in the A’ Design Awards in three consecutive years, and Finalist Winner of the 13th Modern Decoration International Media Award. The studio has a rigorous methodology in research by design, using high quality drawings and models that explore cultural narratives and the humanistic aspects of design. The works have been featured in Archdaily awards, Interior Design NYC, ID+C, Design Anthology, ELLE, Perspective, Domus, FRAME and Wallpaper* Magazine.
