The Headquarter of Eastar is located at an industrial park in the south of Beijing， which was originally part of urban renewal project. The single-storey area is 1，600 square meters and the height is up to 5.5 meters， which provides more possibilities for future space expansion. Our Client， Eastar， is the leading enterprise in youth basketball education of China. In this occasion， Quanting was commissioned to design the corporate headquarters of its domestic group.
Through ten years of development， Eastar has honed their value as “Ultimate goodness， everlasting motivation.” How can we convey the enterprise values and beliefs through spatial design？ How can we make an organic combination between the office building and their basketball courts？ How can we shape a positive and innovative environment for their employees？ These were all what we concerned while designing.
“The Force原力是所有生物创造的一个能量场，包围并渗透着我们，有着凝聚整个星系的能量。” — Obi-wan Kenobi《星球大战》
The Force is an energy field created by all creatures that surrounds and infiltrates us. It has the energy to condense the entire galaxy.——Obi-wan Kenobi， Star Wars
The concept of the Force in Star-war meets exactly with the values held by Eastar. Inspired by this， we hope to build up an Eastar Planet with a positive energy field for all， also a homeland for all.
The whole space is devised into two parts： Alien Space， which stands for “everlasting motivation”， Eastar Oasis， which stands for “ultimate goodness”. We re-architected the steel structure， increasing the available area to 2，600 square meters. The steel structure resembles a battleship skeleton， which delicately connects the two themed areas.
“Welcome to Eastar Planet.”The elevator hallway is built into a time-traveling tunnel， allowing visitors to traverse the star-studded ball through parallel time and space.
The Eastar Oasis is constructed as a spiritual home for every Easter-er. Here， ideas are gathered and spirits find the shelter. Work is not merely about working， but the place where oneself feel fulfilled， and a group feel propelled. In terms of the specific space， we retained the height of atrium， which is up to 5.5 meters， and furthermore put a large number of green plants. The design of recreation area is quite flexible， providing various scenarios for small groups， such as meetings， brainstorming， etc. In addition to stairs， we also bring fun to other routes such as slides and fire poles. The interaction between upper and lower space is thus augmented， and this core area， as an ecological garden， has become a symbiotic land for Easter-ers.
The name of Easter is integrated with the entrance to the warehouse， the telephone room， and the leisure area.
The Alien Space is practically the stadium area and fitness area of Eastar. The client hopes to make an organic combination between the basketball court and the office space， and also use it for course training and curriculum development in different period of time. On top of above functions， the area is also the venue for large conferences and events. The stadium is designed with a variety of lighting modes to meet the needs of different scenarios.
