For Porsche’s new work environment, it was essential that the themes of speed and passion speak boldly through the language of design. Long, horizontal lines with strong black and white contrast guide people and support the allocation of the reception, waiting lounge, and displays areas. The staircase, as a major vertical connector, links the large public areas and fosters communication. A 1:1 scale model of the 919 hybrid racing car is displayed alongside a trophy wall, an engine block and a model car timeline. Large bonsai trees hint at luxury and the importance of China to the brand.

Commenting on the transition of Porsche’s work environment from a traditional office concept to an activity-based environment, Simon Berg, Director of anySCALE in Shanghai, said, “The New Porsche Headquarters is designed as a progressive open plan office with a minimum number of private offices. In addition, there are multiple dedicated spaces to perform special tasks such as focus rooms, and quiet rooms, etc,”
