The conceive of the front area is the application space for the reception, display, and release. It is used as a reception desk daily. When the government and firm come to visit and inspect, it becomes a product display area. A large conference room is set behind the front desk to facilitate the rapid holding of external meetings. When used as a release function, the front desk transferred into a pantry and booth seating which could accommodate at least 50 people.
The DEMO Area tends to be used for daily product testing, live broadcast and brainstorming functions.
The conference intensive area adopts the current internationally popular ABW mode, which is suitable for both dynamic and static. Space planning takes agility and mobility as key demands. It is set in the middle of the building with independent entrance, which provides convenience for external meetings, at the same time isolates the interference to the office area and protects the company’s privacy.
The open work station area fully embraces the use of the smallest partition in an open layout and makes full use of the lighting advantages of the building itself. Set up a single passage along the window to improve office efficiency while avoiding direct sunlight. Standing office areas are set up along the core tube, which reflects the company’s care for the physical and mental health of employees from the details.
