Established in New York over 100 years ago, this pioneering legal firm practices across 26 countries around the world. They engaged us to design and deliver an office which consolidated their need for confidentiality and professionalism, whilst still striving for an open, collaborative and transparent workplace.
The result is a contemporary office environment seamlessly integrating technology. The client meeting zones capture both the internal and external attributes of the building, taking advantage of views over Milan’s Duomo providing an elegant, high-end area.
The constraints of a multi-tenanted historic building, refurbished to a high energy saving standard, ultimately influenced the layout and the way we harnessed the space. Although the layout is based on traditional enclosed offices, the new workplace ensures a high degree of collaboration thanks to the well planned adjacencies and distribution of breakout and social areas across the floorplates.
A transparent, highly efficient and thoughtful workplace supports staff to both integrate as they need to as well as maximise focus time for optimum productivity and connection.
