Baker McKenzie Offices – Hong Kong

  • Client Baker McKenzie,
  • size 76,000 sqft
  • Year 2015
  • Location Hong Kong, China,
  • Industry Law Firm / Legal Services,
  • Circa ia completed the offices for global law firm Baker McKenzie, located in Hong Kong.

    With these changes needed throughout the legal profession, to maintain a competitive edge; our client made a bold decision to co-locate their 2 offices into a 4 floor location; and in the process investigate the minimum acceptable single lawyer office size. This investigation became an analysis of acoustics in a small space, customized sliding doors; & a customized furniture solution to allow the correct visitors & storage space.

    For the support staff, our goal was to create a workstation that offered maximum reachable  and adjoining file space; so as to allow an efficient work setting.

    The net result was not just reducing the practice premises footprint, but introducing a more informal workstation setting between fee-earners; & support staff.

    This workplace setting was balanced with our client’s growing demand for a larger seminar space; & client rooms for the combined practice numbers. In response we developed 3 large rooms & an open coffee and eating area; which can all link together in a series of combinations & settings.

    The combined solution allowed our client to reduce their overall costs, while increasing their ability to hold larger client functions.
