HELLO / HEJ / 你好!

You can feel it in the muggy, humid air: Shanghai summer is finally here. For the Muraya team, the season is all about bringing projects to a close and starting new ones. True to form, since our last update we’ve been awarded some fantastic projects that are keeping us all very busy indeed! 

The renowned SAP Shanghai office project is (finally!) complete. Joking aside, we are more than happy to see our design come to life. Our client moved into the new building in the end of April and is delighted with the result. The SAP Chengdu office is under construction as we speak and we’re anticipating an even more spectacular outcome! If you’re interested in viewing our work, please visit our website here.

Of course, that’s not all! We’re also thrilled to share news of our nomination for the Successful Design Awards; what our design partners in Cambodia have been up to; and the upcoming annual Muraya summer drinks. For all of that, including full event information, just scroll down.

Until next time, have a great summer!

In 1984, Muraya started in Stockholm, the heart of Sweden as a company dedicated to Scandinavian Design. As the company grew, Interior Design and Construction became Muraya’s specialty.  Read more about Muraya
The Era of Co-Creative Spaces?

We’re by now all familiar with co-creative space. As more and more pop up in cities across China, we can definitively say: the era of co-creative workspace is upon us - as it should be! The concept is ideal for small companies or freelancers to share space, meet clients, and collaborate, as well as enjoy additional services at a fraction of the cost of actually renting an office. Many prominent Chinese real estate developers, including SOHO, Wanda, and Vanke are all looking into this vast opportunity. The promising American giant, We Work has also recently established itself in Shanghai - so close, in fact, they’re practically our neighbors!

Muraya has also been involved in the shaping of co-creative spaces - most recently, Vanke’s Co-creative Flagship Center in ZhangJiang district. The project marks a close collaboration between Vanke and the ZhangJiang municipality and is aimed at creating China’s best co-creative spaces.
Celebrating Successful Designs

We’re delighted to announce that Muraya’s SAP Shanghai has been nominated in the SPACE category of this year’s Successful Design Awards! The first to evaluate design for its business and social impact, the Successful Design Award is a highlight of the industry calendar. For SAP, our goal was to create a workspace conducive to new work methods, including desk-sharing, effective space utilization, different energy saving solutions, and more. As a result, we have shaped a space that incorporates a range of change management while simultaneously reflecting SAP’s authenticity and impressive core values.

It’s a great honor to take part in this year’s Successful Design Award. The winner in each category is carefully selected by professional jurors and the results are announced in the late fall. Stay tuned and keep your fingers crossed!
The Room Design Studio

Our design partner in Cambodia, The Room has several exciting ongoing projects. Among them is the Beer Garden which will be the first authentic brewery located in central Phnom Penh. Another interesting project is the Primalis office development. It’s a privately owned office building of around 4500 sqm allocated across three floors, with private apartment units on the second floor.

The Room is Muraya’s Southeast Asia entity and provides a full range of design services including landscape, architectural, exterior, interior, signage, brand identity and more. To get in touch, please visit The Room website.
The Return of the Cubicle?

Our day-to-day work tasks demand a diversity of space, be it for private phone calls, uninterrupted silence, and even napping. Simply put, in the workplace, privacy is a priority. Here’s an interesting read exploring the reasons and implications of by now cookie-cutter open offices and bench-style desks. Could we be seeing a return of the cubicle?

We are always searching for energetic talents to join our team. Currently, we're looking for interior designers, graphic designers, electrical engineers, and project managers. If you're interested in learning about Scandinavian design and working on a wide variety of projects, please send us your CV and portfolio (for creative positions) to hr@muraya.com.
