Vanke Shenzhen

‘What does a typical day here look like?’ At the end of a job interview, this is one question candidates often ask to get a feel of the workplace. At one time, the interviewer may have launched into details about the work timings, lunch hours and coffee breaks. Now however, in most modern organisations, the interviewer is unlikely to be able to give a singular, straight answer.   This is especially true in a company like Vanke. As an urban and rural development provider and a living space management company, the firm has too many diverse business interests for the work roles to fit into traditional definitions. With their operations expanding and diversifying even further, Vanke’s leadership team wanted to shift to... More

Arisaig Partners

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” So the popular saying goes.   But for the investment management firm, Arisaig Partners, this saying is not just an empty philosophy — it forms the very DNA of their corporate brand.

Confidential client offices / San Francisco

Rapt Studio completed the office design for a confidential client located in San Francisco, California.   Designed nearly two decades before, their existing space had remained static while work practices and technology had evolved more than they had in the previous century. Their space didn’t reflect the modern operations of their people. Associates would come into the office looking for a quiet place to do heads-down work or take a phone call, only to leave frustrated by the lack of available private space. Instead of the office, they were using coffee shops to complete their focus work.   The new office was designed to address the way the organization actually functions: a Monday to Thursday configuration focused aroun...

Omnicom

If there’s one thing that has become clear over the last few months, it is the importance of social connections in the modern workplace. In the past few weeks, most people experienced feelings of isolation and loneliness, even as they enjoyed the flexibility of working remotely. In fact, in a global survey we recently conducted, over 85% of respondents said they missed face-to-face social interactions. Companies need to keep this in mind while rethinking their workplace strategies. While they design new policies to make remote working a bigger part of their operations, they also need to make sure that when employees interact, they do so safely and in the most meaningful way possible. When Space Matrix worked with the global marketin... More

Hilton Office

The year is 1919. The place, Cisco, Texas. A young Conrad Hilton arrives in town with the intention of buying a bank and becoming a banker. He changes his mind at the last minute and buys a hotel instead. And so begins the journey of the iconic Hilton hotels.   Back then, the hospitality landscape was very different. Hotel lobbies were not air-conditioned, public rooms did not have cold running water. Televisions in each guest room was unheard of. All this was soon to change, as Hilton hotels evolved, thrived and grew to set a new benchmark for luxury in hospitality.    Much has changed in the industry since then — and Hilton has been at the forefront, leading these changes. As the brand entered its 100th year, Spac... More
