FOSHAN, China 620 sqm 2021

Tencent is a Chinese multinational technology company, among the world's top ones in the field. It is the largest video-game vendor and among the largest social media corporations. Credited as one of the world's most innovative companies, this naturally inspired Area-17 in envisioning the Tencent GBA Industrial Internet Experience Center as a place where the visitor can experience the extraordinary, rather than simply learning about a product or service. The showroom’s multimedia design is powered by WeShape (Beijing) Digital Technology Co., Ltd., which applied a variety of high-tech display equipment and interactive devices to shape a complete map of solutions connecting the physical to the digital world and to the cloud hyperspace.

BEIJING, China 1'600 sqm 2019

The China Resources co-working offices were designed by Area-17 as a space that combines traditional values with modern functions. The nostalgic feeling of reminiscing the smell of ancient wood, solemn proportions of space, and the relaxing play of light on the porch with rustling leaves under your feet are an experience that one feels as if they brought you back into a mythical time of study and places that our collective consciousness relates to that experience.

The partnership between Area-17 Architecture & Interiors and Iris Ceramica Group continues with a renovation work that combines distinctive features of contemporary design with a great respect for what the brand means for its surroundings and the people living there. The refurbishment of the historic Iris Ceramica headquarters arises from two main needs: integrating the original building from the ’60s with the brand-new showroom’s volumes, and remodeling the interiors, which underwent a change in functions over the past decades. It also states the choice to consolidate a weighty brand identity and return it to employees and clients with a new, stronger visual image.
