New office Inbo Shanghai
Festive opening of new Inbo office in Shanghai
On Friday August 23rd, the new Inbo office in Shanghai has been opened with a welcome party. The new accommodation marks the next step that Inbo is taking to strengthen its position on the Chinese market. Inbo has been based in Shanghai since 2015 and has since worked on a varied portfolio of urban and architectural projects.
Starting at 4 p.m. local time, Inbo Asia welcomed the approximately 50 invited clients, including project developers, government representatives and cooperating partners. After a brief welcome by partners Wilco van Oosten and Mark Dekker from Inbo, everyone raised their glass and the office was officially opened. The employees in the Dutch office in Amsterdam could follow the entire event through a live stream.
With a fresh, contemporary and of course self-designed interior, the new office offers spacious ergonomic workplaces, a workshop space and exhibition space. "At our old location, we started in a shared incubator room in 2015," says Mark Dekker, who has been associate at Inbo since 2017 and director of Inbo Asia since 2015. “In the meantime, the flow of assignments and the team have grown, which means we were in need of having our own independent office space. I am really proud of this team and happy with this new inspiring place."
The facades of the new office space consist of floor-to-ceiling glass panes on three sides. This creates a light and pleasant atmosphere, which is enhanced by the adjacent green garden. To ensure the open character of the office, the storage closets are kept low. Apart from storage, they serve as objects on which the work of Inbo is being showcased.
A special element in the room is the interactive map on the back wall. Visitors can leave a personal message by writing it on a colorful Inbo sticker and sticking it at the wall, close to their place of birth. Mark: “The map adds color to our space and underlines that Inbo is about people. Much nicer than a guestbook, right?"
