More about the project...

Our design is tailored to suit the needs of HSBC’s new ring-fenced bank. It accommodates a combination of spaces including workplace, client meeting suite, staff restaurant, cafe, HSBC university training facility and a staff fitness centre. To enhance connectivity between the various facilities and teams within the building, an 11 storey feature staircase was introduced within the building atrium.

The open, transparent ground floor space provides clear vistas to the restaurant, retail branch and the university. The interior scheme adopts finishes from the external building envelop creating a link to the public presence of the new HQ.

The new headquarters has been designed to have it own unique identity within the HSBC portfolio and provides a workspace that supports staff wellbeing.
