Rykadan Office Headquarters
Sophisticated modern workplace
Originally tasked with designing the facade of this new office building in the trendy Wong Chuk Hang district of Hong Kong, JERDE was soon asked to take on the interior design of the building's public space, including the main entrance corridor, lobby, lounge, parking garage, and restrooms. To compete with similar office buildings in the district, the design needed to be upscale with an artistic edge, and needed to have a distinct identity and story.

The entrance from the parking garage to the main lobby one floor up takes visitors past a wall of beautifully framed art and found objects from around the world. Our designers presented to the client three design options as different personality archetypes. Ultimately what was settled on was the look of 'The Ambassador' - cultured, worldly, erudite, and sophisticated.
Multiple seating areas were created, each with their own distinct look and feel, inspired by various travel destinations around the world.
A zen garden sits in the transitional space between the front desk and elevator lobby, greeting visitors and occupants alike with a reminder of another culture. The striking art piece on the wall behind the garden is adaptation of an original work chosen by JERDE.
