Purveyors of Cuban tobacco products and accessories, The Pacific Cigar Company occupy the 16th floor of the Guangdong Investment Tower on Gloucester Road.
Connoisseurs of the noble leaf may be familiar with the firm’s boutique lounges dotted around Hong Kong, themes of which are reflected in the design of this office.
The cool reception contrasts with the warmth of the conference room; the former space references the look of a banded cigar label and the latter, the mustard yellow of the stucco-finished buildings in Havana. In both locations, the chequerboard floor nods to the passion for chess played in the cafés and on the pavements in and around the Plaza de la Revolućion.
