Collaborative Design with Saigon's Legacy: Shaping the Future of Takeda's Workspace in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

In recognizing the strategic importance of expanding into Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, Takeda Pharmaceuticals, a global leader in the pharmaceutical industry, sought to align their growth with both global guidelines and local Vietnamese aesthetics. To achieve this, Takeda engaged Unispace, a globally leading workspace design and construction firm, to create a new office space accommodating their expanding workforce.

Fostering Collaboration Amidst Diversity

The project encountered the intricate task of reconciling diverse needs with Takeda's global guidelines. Thoughtful communication and collaboration were imperative to ensure that the final workspace not only met Takeda Pharmaceuticals' standards and objectives but also resonated harmoniously with the local culture and workforce.

Crafting a Stage to Showcase Local Heritage

Approaching the design of Takeda's new office space with a deep understanding of the client's culture, brand, and business objectives, Unispace harmonized global design principles with local design elements thereby resulting in a hybrid workspace that fosters creativity, connectivity, and growth and reflecting a profound respect for the local community and a commitment to honoring the city's heritage.

Symbolic integration of Saigon's rich history and culture into the office's design underscores this respect. Each column adorned with meticulously carved depictions of iconic landmarks serves as a poignant tribute to Saigon's unique legacy. This seamless integration not only enhances the space's aesthetic appeal but also cultivates a tangible connection to the local culture, fostering a sense of pride, belonging, and reverence among employees and visitors alike.

Beyond Borders: Creating a Hybrid Workspace

The final design of the office space reflects a deliberate strategy to foster creativity, enhance connectivity, and accommodate growth within the workplace. The hybrid concept of neighborhoods and team clusters allocates dedicated spaces for collaboration alongside areas for focused work, catering adeptly to the diverse needs of Takeda's teams, and promoting productivity and collaboration alike.

Tailored space planning addressed real estate challenges and accommodated the growing team, enabling Takeda to strengthen its presence in the region. This positive impact on company culture, collaboration, and productivity reflects the success of the partnership between Takeda Pharmaceuticals and Unispace, characterized by close collaboration, communication, and a shared commitment to excellence.
