2020 may not start very well, but it must get a great ending! This is why many technology firms are still working very hard. As one of the top 10 technology firms in the world, Alibaba chooses to keep bringing innovation to us, and it is the reason why they are always ahead in the market. But, have you ever wondered how people work and live in Alibaba? Today, we give you a tour in the heart of Alibaba.
As a technology firm, Alibaba’s teams are always responsive and effective. Multi-tasking is a common task for their members. Members have to communicate and collaborate with different teams and departments for co-organizing projects while sometimes, they have to focus to finish their personal tasks. Rest and recharge are also the elementary activities in their daily lives. By making a deep analysis on their daily lives, Lamex provides Alibaba with a Community Workplace Solution – Longhouse and Playces.
Longhouse is comprised of 3 constituents: Bench, Social Table and Pavilion. Longhouse creates a community where we focus, collaborate and rest.
The Bench gives us personal time and space for focus works. The Bench comes with End Extension and Shared Surface that allow quick discussion and collaborative with people. It saves times from moving to a conference area for discussion or meeting.
The Social Table allows a 4-6 people meeting and collaboration in a causal environment. It will be a good fit for creative meeting, sharing, learning and video conferencing.
The Pavilion provides a quiet environment for relax and recharge. It is an ideal place for people to relax, meditate, and inspire in the workplace.
Members of Alibaba work, collaborate, communicate, meet and rest in Longhouse. It results in greater work engagement and satisfaction among members, fostering high efficiency and close relationship among and within teams.
Multi-tasking is a common task for their members. Members have to communicate and collaborate with different teams and departments for co-organizing projects. That is why Alibaba introduces “Hui-Space”, which means collaboration, creativity, versatility and flexibility.
Given the needs for “Hui-Space”, Lamex introduces Playces Collaborative Collection for fostering effective collaboration and creativity.
Meta Octagonal Sofa supports different types of team activities and collaborations. The half-height back provides relative privacy for meetings, while the standing table at the back provides versatility for team collaborations.
Modular Perch Sofa satisfies the needs of “Hui-Space” for versatility. Whether you are enjoying a cup of coffee for a comfortable morning, sharing in the afternoon, or brain-storming meeting in the evening, it is always a comfortable and cozy place to choose.
The 120-degree configuration of Perch Sofa supports team collaborations and group discussions. The Low Back design of the Perch Sofa provides a sense of space in the area.
Rest is as important as focus works and collaborations in a modern workplace. The auricular design shape of Sven provides a sense of privacy, allowing people to enjoy a private moment with their favourite music.
Commons stands next to the windows that provide a relatively private space for people to focus on their works.
Commons can also instantly form to become a place where people gather, share and enjoy their meal.

This and That is the family of modern coffee table. Its metal base provides extra stability for its tiny body, which is easy to move around the area.
Lumin is a private and quiet room designed for collaborative area. Its excellent acoustic ability and ventilation design provides you a comfortable environment for different personal activities.
As a technology giant and one of the top 10 brands in the world, the soaring brand value of Alibaba is attributed to their teams and members. In the campus of Alibaba, it is easy to see young members skateboarding. These young people enjoy their freedom and they love to work efficiently. All these attributes are shared and embraced by Longhouse and Playces, creating a place where everyone can truly work, play and rest.
