CBRE Beijing Office
In designing CBRE’s new headquarters in Beijing, the Gensler team sought to highlight the commercial real estate firm’s flexible office strategy while also integrating the design with Beijing’s cultural heritage. To symbolize CBRE’s solid industry expertise and project managing capabilities, the design team created the concept of the “Hall of Knowledge.” Inspired by “cheng,” a place where China’s ancient dynasties archived scrolls, the workplace design team came up with a series of coherent design elements including tiles, books, and city maps. The office design incorporates soothing and tranquil colors, drawn from the traditional Chinese color palette, to enhance the design concept and create a soft yet lively atmosphere for all of CBRE Beijing’s employees. A careful selection of carpet and plush seat cushions further elevates the overall office experience.
