    Here are offices for a law firm with a difference. Whether judging from the first impression or the general details, one might be excused in guessing this might be a coworking space, an airport lounge, a library or a gallery. One might even question how real or imaginary this place is, which is a deliberate aspect of a brief that was in part defined by the Chinese poetic vision of ‘Yi Zhen, Yi Huan’.

    Here, bold artwork is mixed with comfortable library/lounge settings; high quality furniture is enabled with leading technology and ergonomics; rooms are very transparent to emphasize a collaborative and open culture; a variety of spaces and settings creates personality and character to encourage individuals and innovation; and most work settings are unassigned, so they are available to all. One gets the impression that this is much more than just another functional and beautiful office. Here is an efficient law office, a vibrant and happy community… even a place to go to be inspired.
