ISI Automotive was founded in 1995 with a focus on the specific requirements of the automotive industry, whose primary focus is on innovative approaches to vehicle safety. In 2017, ISI Automotive officially entered China and established its branch in Changshu, Jiangsu Province.VIRTUARCH was put in charge by iSi for their new facilities in Changshu. VIRTUARCH successfully delivered architecture design, interior design and construction management consulting services, as well as the overall project management. The independent office building integrates multiple functional areas like regional headquarter, offices, conference facilities, meeting rooms, a lounge and showroom, as well as a canteen. Located at the entrance, and well visible from the street corner, the office building is the landmark of ISI. The dark gray façade forms an elegant frame meandering around the generous band of windows. The cement fiberboards and aluminum sheets on the office building façade and the gray panels of the plants are perceived as a unit, at the same time visually underpinning the company’s innovative claim. All meeting and conference rooms are located on the second floor of the office building, in a generous and functional conference center. Acoustic panels on the ceiling, writeable wall surface, and multimedia conference terminals enable each conference room to achieve an excellent audio-visual effect. Natural light along with linear lights and downlights illuminate the office. VIRTUARCH uses a combination of direct and indirect light, bright colors and healthy material to create an authentic working space to promote the well-being of the employees and guests.
