FVA designed the coworking offices for SPACES located at Shanghai Tower in China.
On the twenty-ninth floor of the tallest skyscraper in Asia, FVA designed a new SPACES’ Coworking space with 2292 square meters.

Spaces is a multinational corporation that provides a global workplace with a creative atmosphere where people can work and meet with clients. Spaces aims to inspire workers with its beautifully designed areas and kindle their entrepreneurial spirit. With a hundred different companies operating under the SPACES umbrella, the challenge was to create an environment that would appeal to a broad range of tastes while respecting and upholding the individual brand identities.

Shanghai Tower is located in the heart of the bustling Lujiazui Financial and Trade Zone. Lujiazui is a well-developed world class financial and commercial hub, representing Shanghai and China’s amazing growth in economy and city development.

How The Project Was Received

The SPACES office occupies a circular space, the project was imagined as “a space breathes with nature” by using the dominating colors that are associated with the four seasons: green spring, red summer, yellow autumn, beige winter.

Shanghai is a multi-cultural metropolis with both modern and traditional Chinese features. With the idea of bringing the image of Shanghai into the project, the design of the space is a contemporary take on traditional Chinese architecture, creating a unique and authentic design experience.

We used pendant lights as the highlight element leading through all the area. Whatever the setting, these pendants are equally stunning when clustered in a group or as a single statement piece. The room was naturally divided without using free-standing walls to reduce the stifled feeling, creating an atmosphere of understated elegance and simplicity.
