RayData的北京辦公室位於了保利國際廣場的19層，這是一棟31層的摩天大樓，由Skidmore Owings & Merrill於2017年建成。
RayData’s Beijing office takes over the 19th floor of Poly International Plaza, a 31-storey skyscraper completed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill in 2017.
The building’s cylindrical form and latticed shell ended up becoming a key point of reference for Precht, which was brought on board to develop the office’s interior design scheme.
The 980-square-metre office follows the building’s looping plan but has been split into two halves – the north-facing side contains work areas for employees, while the south-facing side is dedicated to communal areas like the reception and company showroom.An almost-black corridor leads through to the work areas which, in contrast, largely feature white surfaces to create a bright and relaxed environment for staff.
Triangular desks have been arranged in a zigzag pattern across the room, to subtly mimick the latticework on the building’s facade.Spotlights on the office’s ceiling, bench-style sofas and door handles are also triangular in shape, in a nod to RayData’s logo.
Each desk is partially lined with slate-coloured fabric from Danish brand Kvadrat. The studio hopes that, along with the grey carpeting, this will help manage acoustics in the office and bring a comforting sense of tactility.
Staff are separated by large panes of glass engraved with geographical maps of different cities, however should they want more privacy they can head to one of the textile-covered booths that have been created in the corners of the room.
White pod chairs have additionally been dotted throughout.The southern side of the office is accessed by a bright-white walkway, but the studio has completed rooms here in a darker palette to dramatise the appearance of the presentation screens and interactive models on-site.LED strip lighting has also been installed to channel the “unique atmosphere of the AI-era office”.
