This ‘Big Four’ management consultancy firm selected One Space from a highly competitive field of design professionals to not only design their new offices, but to co-lead a business reengineering exercise that would establish a new ‘Workplace of the Future’ paradigm, embracing a broad spectrum of inherent workstyles already present in the organisation. We were responsible for formulating a progressive Workplace Strategy and for the full scope of Workplace Design-to-Delivery services.
Designed to accommodate about 3,300 staff in phases across a multi-premises ‘Metroplan’ platform, the first project was completed and occupied in November 2019 over 9 floors at South Island Place, a brand new Grade A tower on Hong Kong’s Southside.
Our Workplace Strategy prescribed both ‘resident’ and ‘agile’ neighborhoods, reinforcing client-centric engagements –whether project-based or long-term service-based –as the key, indispensable day-to-day business driver.
A wide diversity of work setting choices replaces the old model of “offices plus open plan”. A 13,000 sq ft all-day dining and multipurpose venue forms the heart of a “Community Floor”, situated to connect directly onto a private landscaped garden, and well as to adjoin the client-facing facilities and ideation spaces. A state-of-the-art corporate training centre seating 300 trainees simultaneously occupies one entire 11,000 sq ft floorplate.
