The space leased was previously built out by an Oil and Gas company. Although well designed, we needed to tailor-make the space to reflect PetroChina Canada as a company. Feng Shui, a cherished client corporate value that aims to ensure that people work in harmony with their environment, was required to be integrated into the existing space and these concepts drove the planning and design phases.
With the help of our client, we researched the important elements of Feng Shui to ensure the concepts were captured appropriately and accurately. As a result, the existing interconnecting stairwell between floors was closed off to ensure that money won’t leave the space. Spatial orientation to the river was also a major consideration that guided the planning solution.
We were asked to incorporate Chinese words into the design of the space. The design implemented in the reception area was used to highlight these particular words and bridges an aesthetically beautiful feature wall with acoustical qualities to enhance the look and environment of this area. Materials and millwork were updated throughout the space, with attention given to specific front-end and central company spaces such as the elevator lobby, reception, and staff café.
