9GAG Office  in Hong Kong by LAAB Architects

From the architect:  “LAAB’s design turned a mundane warehouse on an industrial high-rise in Hong Kong into an edge office that enjoys plenty of daylight from perimeter windows. Inspired by 9GAG’s web and app interface, LAAB designed a minimalist black and white interior juxtaposing against the raw industrial shell that was preserved as artifact and curiosity for the past.”

With over 80 million monthly visitors, 9GAG is the world’s leading online social platform for fun content. To align with 9GAG’s vision, transparency, sharing, and the sense of community are the keywords for the design strategy.   9GAG_Office_LAAB_(11) 12778848_10156576654640603_8062943730107466185_o 12779116_10156576654740603_8749731364128796022_o

“9PARK” is an undefined wide open space specifically reserved – large enough for many activities ranging from “Town Hall” event and daily meetings, to lounging, camping and dog walking. 12783782_10156576654645603_2864490206631820286_o

“9DESKS” has islands of white open desks that are flexibly assigned to different project teams, to be shared based on daily needs. Adjustable sit-stand stations allow the employees to work with their desirable posture. The otherwise cold working environment is broken up by the communal kitchen at the heart of the space. 9GAG_Office_LAAB_(6) 9GAG_Office_LAAB_(3) 9GAG_Office_LAAB_(7) 9GAG_Office_LAAB_(8) 9GAG_Office_LAAB_(D2)_Plan 9GAG_Office_LAAB_(D1)_Axon

“9SHEDS” are a number of enclosed meeting rooms along the edge of the desk area. These rooms are defined by distinctive dimension, mood, privacy and transparency, planned to fit different types of meetings and workshops. Screen Shot 2016-02-29 at 10.07.00
