Guangzhou specializing in leather
Satshi is a company in Guangzhou specializing in leather products. A team of designers from Guangzhou Feeling provided interior planning and design for Satshi’s offices. The design project was to establish an energetic and modern office space integrating multiple functions for all departments of the company. What stroke designers from Feeling first was the 6-meter story height, so they decided to keep the original ceilings and started things from there.
Enjoy the fun of reading
Walking into the reading area, one may first see a spacious and bright space. As walking along in sunshine showering down, one may find it irresistible to sit down in a comfortable couch and read a book. There is nothing more enjoyable than reading there at that very moment.
Shared arch space
The interview and reading areas share an arch glass wall which expands the two areas in visual effect and creates a sound-proof environment.
Special segmentation icons
Except some special departments who are in independent spaces, the rest departments are based in an open working space. The stand-up characters are used as special icons to help people recognize different departments. In the open space, designers successfully broke the boring enclosure by integrating the storey height, revealed ceilings and the pendants with industrial senses, to have recreated the space into an open and bright space where employees would feel pleasant.
Considering the unique structure of the building, we centered on the tower in the layout design and designed a zigzag corridor which would link all offices within the shortest distances. The simple yet dynamic curve and line maximize working efficiency and facilitate cross-departmental communication. Zigzag corridor is the main pathway of the company, with leather materials on display on some parts of the walls on both sides. With paintings decorated casually on the walls and large display shelves established at appropriate places, the corridor performs like an art gallery. It is also one of the purposes in design that visitors could take a tour walking in the corridor, experiencing Satshi’s corporate culture and appreciating the beauty of leather materials.
Stepping into the dented streamline hallway, visitors will be led into a space by multiple curves and arches formed among the ceiling, walls, the ground and the information table. It is also where the connections between arch walls in functional areas start. As white being the basic tone, the space is represented in four different themes, flat, tree pattern, plaid and tilted bricks. The combination of white and wood textures enrich the space into a multi-layer structure, while yellow and blue energize and vitalize the space.
