About Project

Huawei's financial center, accounting, marketing and HR are located in Shenzhen. The center includes a large number of buildings of different years of construction. The selected building for the design was built about 30 years ago and required renovation. At the same time, its main characteristics (ceiling height, facades, organization of the core of the building and stairway-elevator flights) were at a very good level, effective, therefore they did not require intervention.

Together with the Client, ABD architects discussed the style of modern architecture using classic natural materials: stone, wood. The layout of the office was not directly related to the structure of departments or companies, and was primarily based on an understanding of the necessary density of employees and the correct ratio of meeting rooms, coffee and tea areas, and other premises.

Special attention was paid to the design of the entrances and cafes on the 1st floor, as well as the working areas. The interior was supposed to be complex, with the use of various materials and textures. For the design, the architects were inspired by the nature of China, interpreting it with various techniques.

Huawei employees work at fixed workplaces, but at the same time the company expands the range of possible areas for work, making them diverse. This was a step towards Activity Based Office, but with fixed workplace.

In addition to the interior, the architects were tasked with designing the concept of the landscape, linking the building with neighboring buildings, including the dining room. A concept was developed that took into account weather conditions (wind and very sunny summer), while landscaping became a continuation of the cafe on the ground floor: its tables smoothly turned into a pedestrian zone with a complex landscape.
