2018年12月13日，室内办公空间设计领域的领导者Roy David Architecture在以色列特拉维夫市宣布，其为专注母婴健康的技术公司Nuvo设计的新总部正式开幕。该项目位于特拉维夫新近开业的奥尔顿塔内，占地面积1500平方米。自2007年创立以来，Nuvo一直致力于开发可穿戴的、基于传感器的孕期健康技术。Nuvo公司所研发的胎儿监护仪，既反映了以数据为中心的技术性，又兼具女性娇柔的特点，具有划时代的意义和价值，有望大大改善母婴医疗保健领域的现状。因此Roy David Architecture的设计宗旨在于创造一个可以同时表现这两种产品特性的办公空间。

Tel Aviv, Israel – December 13, 2018: Roy David Architecture, a leader in office interior architecture, officially unveils the new headquarters of maternal-fetal health technology company, Nuvo. Located in Tel Aviv’s recently opened Alon Towers, the office occupies an entire floor with 1,500 square-meters of design. Founded in 2007, Nuvo has dedicated itself to developing wearable, sensor-based technologies for pregnancy health. Roy David Architecture’s design brief was to create a space that reflects both the data-centric and feminine nature of Nuvo’s primary product, a revolutionary fetal monitor that vastly improves this segment of healthcare.

Nuvo将孕期女性的数据传送到实时数据平台，而医生则可以通过平台随时监控母婴体征，通过这种方法，改变了孕期体验，不仅使医疗服务者能够更好地管理母亲和胎儿的体验，还降低医疗保健系统的成本。Roy David Architecture所面临的主要挑战是如何创造一个空间，使其不仅能够展现Nuvo研发的产品的独特性，还能够适应各种高科技工作的特殊需求，如纺织品的检测、开发、数据算法、市场营销和财务等。
Nuvo has transformed the experience of pregnancy by connecting mothers and physicians to real-time information that enables healthcare providers to better manage the experience for both mothers and babies while reducing cost to healthcare systems. The primary design challenge for Roy David Architecture was to create a space that not only spoke to the nature of the unique products Nuvo creates and develops, but also to provide a variety of working environments that would accommodate the unique and highly technical work done by the company’s employees, ranging from textile testing, development and data algorithms to marketing and finance.

Roy David Architecture所采取的解决办法是设计一个充满活力的多功能研发中心，将其打造为一个适应全体研发人员需求的开放空间。该空间由各种会议室和合作空间组成，从私密性极佳的电话亭式座椅讨论区，到正式的大会议室一应俱全。此外，中心内还包括几间实验室，以方便服务技术研究人员。建筑师希望该总部的室内空间可以展现出一种私密感和功能性。为此，建筑师与木匠合作，定制了多功能家具，不仅为不同团队提供了必要的空间分隔，还为员工提供了大片的书写空间和靠近他们工作位置的储藏空间。

▼正式的会议室，the formal meeting room
Roy David Architecture’s solution was to create a Research and Development “HUB,” a dynamic and multipurpose open space, housing the entire research and development team. The space is comprised of a variety of meeting and collaborative spaces, ranging from privacy booth seating to formal meeting rooms. The HUB is also home to the several of the company’s labs, facilitating access to the employees who utilize the equipment daily. The space itself was planned to provide a sense of privacy and functionality. The firm worked with a carpenter to create custom multi-purpose furniture pieces that create the divisions required between the teams, as well as provide the employees with integrated writing surfaces and storage near their work stations.

建筑空间的设计语言灵感来源于Nuvo公司主打产品的特性——本质上给人一种柔软的感觉，但在功能开发上却基于严谨复杂的数据和技术。Roy David Architecture将这种特性转化成建筑语言，选用浅色白蜡木、橄榄木和珊瑚色的饰面来定义空间，置身其中，满目都是优雅柔和的线条和颜色。它们与更加线性的可视化空间元素，如整个空间中的定制家具和天花板上的细节等共同作用，加强室内氛围。这一系列的设计概念在办公室入口空间展现得淋漓尽致：网格状的直角形接待处和其后方的储存空间系统平行于一个入口休息区布置，休息区的天花板和分隔墙上都配有曲线型图案，这些线条的设计灵感都来源于怀孕期间女性的造型特征。
The design language is closely tied to and inspired by the unique nature of the company’s primary product, one whose design is soft in nature, but whose function and development is based on complex data and technology. Roy David Architecture chose elegant and soft lines and colors, light ash wood, olive and coral finishes, to define the space. These work in sync with the more linear elements that can be seen, for example, in details of the custom furniture and ceiling elements throughout the space. The design concept is made clear upon entrance to the office space, by the angular and grid-like reception desk and accompanying storage system planned in parallel with the curved lines of the ceiling detail and dividing partitions, both of which were inspired by the female form during pregnancy.

新办公总部位于奥尔顿塔的26层，所有的办公空间和工作台都沿着玻璃幕墙布置，为Nuvo的员工提供了俯瞰壮丽的城市景观、享受地中海美景的机会。此外，公司还设有一个大型厨房空间，兼做全公司的聚会和会议空间，在设计上也充分考虑到了景观朝向。Roy David Architecture与西班牙的家具设计公司SANCAL紧密合作，通过REW系列的厨房家具，为窗边座椅区的设计量身打造了一个方案。此外，家居设计公司还沿着玻璃幕墙量身定制了一个笔记本电脑吧台，为员工们创造了一个全新的办公环境，无论是私人会谈，还是合作讨论，这个吧台都能满足要求。

All offices and workstations are located along the curtain wall, allowing the employees of Nuvo to enjoy the magnificent urban and Mediterranean sea views from the 26th floor. The large kitchen space, additionally utilized as an all-company meetup and conference space, was also planned to take advantage of the views. Roy David Architecture worked together with Spanish furniture designers, SANCAL to create a custom solution for the window-line seating with their REW Kitchen line. The designer also created a custom laptop bar along the curtain wall to provide employees with an alternative workstation for private and collaborative work.
