Pacific Basin

Formerly located on one and one half floors of Hutchison House in Central, Pacific Basin now call the entire top floor of One Island South their new home.

The new premises totals more than 30,000 square feet in area and features only five enclosed offices for a total of 210 staff. Everyone else is seated at height-adjustable, 120 degree desks in pod formations of 3, 6 or 9.

During the initial planning, the design team proposed to locate the conference and meeting rooms at the corner of the floor-plate nearest to the lift lobby, but management decided otherwise: this area – with the best views of Aberdeen Harbour and Ocean Park - became the café, or Galley, available at all times to all staff.

The Galley is unenclosed, visually linked to reception, and has become the lively focal point of the office for tea and coffee breaks, lunches, casual meetings with clients and vendors, as well as for Town Halls - when the entire company gathers together for short announcements or presentations.
