Davis Polk & Wardwell

Having expanded to occupy almost four full floors of The Hong Kong Club Building over a period of years, Davis Polk & Wardwell required a major upgrade to their 34,000 square foot premises by late 2021.

The practice floors at Levels 17-19 were renovated, in phases, and the Client Suite – which previously occupied most, but not all, of the 8th Floor – was moved up two floors, to Level 10.

The project was carried out on a Design / Build basis over a period of twelve months – completing at end September 2022. In the process, fee-earners were provided with high-acoustic attenuation partitions to the corridors and, especially, between their offices; adjustable height desks; improved air conditioning and lighting; and on-floor cafes.

A flexible, generously proportioned multi-purpose space was also added for staff training, seminars, Town Halls and other corporate events. Located between the boardroom and reception area, it can be divided down the centre into two separate rooms, with a movable partition.

The lounge features a coffee bar with barista service and is available to the entire staff for lunch get-togethers and short breaks as well as for internal training, Town Halls and other firm-wide events.

The full size of the media wall, supplied and installed by Komstadt Systems, is visible in the view below. Composed of 200 rectangular modules, each one 150 x 338 mm, the overall dimension of the screen is nearly 1.7 meters high by 6.0 meters wide.
