Forest in the office building.
We designed the entrance hall of an office building in Shanghai. The entrance hall of the building is facing a small street with beautiful trees lined, and we took the entrance hall as the “expansion” of the small street, then we created this entrance hall as if the beautiful trees outside are continuing to the inside of the building. We shaped the GRG panels using a mold that resembles a bamboo pattern, and installed the panels in a smooth continuous line from the walls to the ceiling. The panels were then illuminated with strong light from behind the panels to create a space with sunlight filtering through the trees.
