CLOU was commissioned by CapitaLand to renovate the interior of Capital Square Beijing and reposition the lobby and public space. CLOU illuminates the office lobby with a modern design language, introducing the concept of ‘The City Lantern’. The original dark and outdated lobby is transformed into a more attractive and contemporary workplace while also activating the value of the underutilised space.凯德·星贸原为博瑞大厦，坐落于北京市朝阳区东三环北路，南侧紧临团结湖公园，地处CBD商务区与燕莎商圈交汇处，是东三环团结湖的地标建筑。2022年由凯德收购后，致力打造全新的品牌形象，转型升级为高端精品办公商业综合体。Capital Square Beijing, formerly known as Borui Plaza, is
located on North Dongsanhuan Road in Chaoyang District, Beijing, with Tuanjiehu
Park to the south, at the intersection of the CBD and Lufthansa business districts, and is a landmark building of Tuanjiehu Park area. After being acquired by CapitaLand in 2022, it has been revamped with a new brand image and transformed into a high-end office and commercial complex.
Entrance before and after改造前的大堂室内装饰多用石材，气质偏古典陈旧，室内信息过载，昏暗压抑。在主入口，CLOU柯路将其原有雨棚整体焕新，结合银色铝板和线性灯柱，极具辨识度。The original interior of the building was dominated by marble, with a classical and antiquated atmosphere, and the interior was overloaded with information. At the main entrance, CLOU renewed the original canopy with a combination of aluminium panels and linear lighting, creating a more distinctive entrance.
The first floor of the office lobby is enclosed in white laminated glass, combined with soft and elegant circular lighting to create a clean and bright office lobby. Symbolizing a pure and bright "white lantern", which also implies the prosperity of the brand-new Capital Square Beijing and the aspirations of its tenants.
Walls in grey reconstituted stone, white terrazzo on the floor, and partly silver stainless steel, embellished with champagne gold on the ceiling, The lightness and elegance of the enclosed layers of laminated glass contrasts with the hardness of the metal and the terrazzo, forming a harmonious unity of opposites.当下办公大堂正从一个典型的单一空间演变为连接街道和社区的灵活空间。在平面优化上，柯路发现原东小堂也有极高的使用率，但入口不明显，周围环境不佳。本次改造中柯路将东小堂加以合理设计，优化整体室内环境，增加便利设施包括咖啡岛和休息区等，为原本被忽视的空间增添了更多社交功能。Today the office lobby is evolving from a typical monolithic space to a more flexible space that connects to the street and community. In optimizing the plan, CLOU discovered that the small east lobby
was highly used by the tenants, but the entrance was not obvious and the
surrounding environment was poor. In the renovation, CLOU optimized the interior
of the East Lobby, and created a
coffee and rest area, adding more social function to the originally neglected space.同时，标识设计上延续室内设计元素，材质使用金色不锈钢，并使用简洁方正字体。标识设计清晰明了，与整体室内环境相得益彰。
The signage design continues the interior design elements
using gold stainless steel and simple and square fonts, which provide clear
guidance and complement the overall interior environment.
