Today we’re showing you an industrial office designed by Jingze Li of Narration, which was built in 1986 for the Nanxing Glass Manufactory, that was brought up to date and transformed for his client in 2015 bridging the building’s past usage with its future potential.

The designer took what could be considered a design caveat and turned it into a design asset, organizing the entire office as a continuously flowing space wherein one designated room leads into another, sort of like an open-plan loft but elongated. This encourages a communication and collaborative spirit between the office workers.
As far as the décor goes, the building’s original, textural construction materials are highlighted and brought to the forefront seen in the exposed red brick walls and concrete ceilings as well as the pipes and beams running along them.
Meanwhile, the floor has been covered in a shiny, light gray epoxy paint that adds an unexpected touch of subtle polish to the interiors. Glass also features prominently, not just on the bare window frames pointing but also as dividers between corridors and laid over “windows” in walls which frame peek-a-boo views of other sections of the building, such as the entrance area.

Furniture is also used for delineating spaces, like for example two large bookshelves between the main office and the two, slightly more private, meeting rooms. Within the meeting rooms, comfortable pieces of furniture, encourage office workers’ cooperation during break times as well as while they work.
We also felt in love with the white-painted, brick walled and linoleum-floored restrooms. Here there are quirky touches that add a sense of warmth, such as the “Hollywood” style dressing mirror surrounded by round light bulbs or the large, deep double sink.
