BJM Group is a holding company with diversified businesses in construction and property development. As a well-established organisation, it is important for their office design to reflect the company’s professionalism, values and image. The design is skewed towards modern contemporary with hints of oriental elements. Oriental art pieces decorate the walls while religious sculptures, medals and books are displayed in tinted glass cabinets. An earthy colour scheme was used with walnut wood colour dominating the spaces and the use of light beige and white in the furniture, walls and flooring to soften the spaces. Upon entering, a grand entrance statement is achieved with a marble centrepiece flanked by wooden panels on both sides and a reception desk made of the same luxurious marble. At the corner, a small, cosy space acts as a waiting or discussion area for clients, suppliers and visitors. The offices are designed with glass walls, which extends the space horizontally and offer a seamless border that opens up the internal space. Also, because of the ample use of glass around the office, natural lighting helps to save energy costs during the day. Wooden panel strips are installed from floor-to-ceiling to allow for the separation of spaces that does not feel confined. The wall column features a wraparound display shelf with hidden lighting, perfect for displaying their products, magazines and plants. A well-equipped pantry provides employees with a relaxing break from work. Designed with full height cabinets, there is plenty of room for storage of kitchen utensils, appliances and miscellaneous items. In the boardroom, magnificent views of the city sets the stage for creative brainstorming. Warm lighting turns the rigid office into a warm and welcoming environment. The Director’s room is a sizable room that is part lounge, part office. At the lounge, there is plenty of enjoyment, from a ceiling-mounted Television for entertainment to a Chinese traditional tea preparation set for enjoying some quality tea.
