CITIC Bank International

The new CITIC Bank International Headquarters at International Commerce Centre (ICC) in Kowloon occupies 70,000 square feet near the top of what is currently the tallest building in Hong Kong.

The project entailed construction of an interconnecting stair, a 60-position Trading Room, a 30-person Board Room and eleven other Meeting Rooms, including a flexible multi-function space for client receptions and other large events.

In a break from traditional office planning, virtually all of the staff accommodation is open-plan. There are very few enclosed offices and most of these are located against the core walls rather than at the exterior.

A major client concern at the outset was that there would be too much daylight at such a very high level of the building. This was successfully resolved by the selective addition of special roller blinds to augment the translucent, landlord provided, grey sun shades at the perimeter of each floor.
