McKinsey Doha

Roar (formerly Pallavi Dean Interiors) as Architects

McKinsey & Company, the global management consulting firm, has moved into its new office in Doha, designed by Dubai-based interior design studio Roar. 

  

The space is home to 55 McKinsey staff across 7750 sq ft. The design is anchored on three pillars: the culture of the country, health & wellness, and Digital McKinsey. 

 

Promoting health and wellness was central to the design brief. To bring this idea to life, Roar created a range of feature including walk-and-work desks with treadmills; sit-stand desks; and a TRX stretch-and-strength zone. Designers maximised the flow of natural light, and embraced the principles of biophilia with plants and greenery throughout. Every workstation is  sit stand and in addition to this there are dedicated high working tables and stand-up meeting rooms.. There’s also a dedicated space for nursing mothers, and relaxed café-style seating for informal gatherings and solo work. The space is broken down into zones that are identified by muted colors ( teal green, sky blue and salmon tones) 

 

Other digital features include a dedicated video conference room, while all workstations and meeting rooms are enabled to support a range of technology solutions. 

 

For the third pillar, McKinsey Partner Samvit Kanoria explained: “The way we interpreted McKinsey Digital was embedded – in the way we work, and the way we collaborate.” 

  

Designer Pallavi Dean revealed how this was achieved in practice: “Design and technology worked hand-in-glove on this one. We started with a big statement the minute you walk into the office – a giant digital wall that can play a variety of roles, from news and data visualisation, to giving guests a warm, personal welcome.” 

  

Other digital features include a dedicated video conference room, while all workstations and meeting rooms are enabled to support a range of technology solutions. 

  

McKinsey Partner Samvit Kanoria concluded: “We really believe that ultimately,  our new space will contribute to enabling an enjoyable and fulfilling experience for our colleagues in Doha, and that is super exciting for us.’’
