Tasked with designing unique communal spaces for global brand WeWork’s new 18,288 sqm co-working concept, which spread over eight floors in Causeway Bay, Hong Kong, NCDA took inspiration from Hong Kong’s iconic transportation and cues from WeWork’s in-house design team.


NCDA defined each floor as an individual ‘neighbourhood’, creating a distinctive sense of place through colour and material palettes, custom-design furnishings, and a collection of local-inspired wallpapers alongside artworks by Hong Kong-based creatives, including photographers, lighting artists and various illustrators.

Each of the communal spaces features a local cultural element like the street kiosks, the curved bar counter with wooden overhang inspired by the Ferry terminal, custom-designed sofas are a nod to the Star Ferry’s signature seating. Bespoke lighting further evokes Hong Kong’s familiar street signage, trams and florescent lights.
