chinese digital marketing giant LEO marked their efforts to restructure the company with a refreshed office by startup studio LLLab. originally founded in germany, LLLab‘s design both provokes and redefines the stereotypical image of the workplace.

the building houses approximately 600 employees, most of whom range from 20-30 years old. though dominantly young, LEO has a long client list of international heavy hitters including coca cola, pepsi, starbucks, michelin, and more.

the overriding tone of the space is raw, with special attention paid to the depiction of the creative process and ideas. meeting spaces and offices are separated entirely by clear glass partitions, which not only bring light into the interior, but are seen as a critical element in the communicative atmosphere. transparent separations are viewed as functional interfaces where meeting notes and brainstorming sessions can be formulated and shared simultaneously.

reflective surface coating was applied to the entirety of the concrete floor and ceiling. a lighter finish, on walls and columns, drastically brightens the space and merges with glass walls. offices, meeting spaces, and other informal gathering points are highlighted using solid wood accents. doing so provides a buffer and slows the rhythm of movement, allowing for more of a transition between one area and another.
