FP Marine | Howden

Opportunity For An Integrated Business

The relocation of FP Marine Risks and Howden Insurance Brokers, sister companies under the Hyperion Insurance Group, to a new 9,700 sq. ft. space in Causeway Bay allowed One Space to create a tailor-made office for both companies. The challenge was to design a home that would support a more integrated business operation and generate previously untapped synergies. 

First, One Space brought them together on one large floorplate, a ‘square doughnut’ with lift lobby access on the side to give guests panoramic views of Victoria Harbour. A singular, large-scale multi-purpose ‘living room’ at the crossroads of the premises was created to allow for more interaction between guests and staff. ‘Neighbourhoods’ of between 20 and 40 workstations were developed, along with breakout spaces, brainstorm areas and a secondary wet pantry to promote socialisation. With an open office concept, Focus Rooms and shielded settings were incorporated for private meetings when needed.
