The original EIG Hong Kong premises enjoyed a spectacular view of Victoria Harbour from the 38th Floor of Two IFC.
The office layout, organized more or less symmetrically around a large reception area and boardroom, had two offices and two open-plan analysts’ workstations at either side. Along the wall bordering the public corridor were two spare offices and a video-conferencing room, on the one side, while the breakout area, machine room and server room rounded out the list of facilities at the opposite side.
Carbonized bamboo flooring was used in the reception area, which also featured an interesting ribbed-beam ceiling incorporating both direct and indirect lighting, while an unusual veneer – Makybe – was selected for all of the millwork and non-fabric wall paneling throughout. Chairs and seating were sourced from Allsteel, Keilhauer and Bernhardt.
Due to the highly exposed location of the Boardroom, electronic glass was used in the wall and doors so that privacy could be achieved with the flick of a switch.
