MetLife | Asia Headquarters

Collaboration for Success

As MetLife relocated their Asia-Pacific Headquarters into the brand new One Taikoo Place in Hong Kong, they appointed One Space to develop a more agile and collaborative workplace model. The project brought together staff from three relocations, and required us to conduct detailed stakeholder interviews with several business unit heads. The new office needed to facilitate both collaborative and independent work.

Collaborative activities were supported by a wide range of settings, from enclosed to shielded to open. Quiet ‘heads down’ work and confidential conversations were accommodated in a suite of universally sized, unassigned rooms with transparent frontages and sliding glass doors arrayed along the core wall.

The lift arrival and reception were positioned to enjoy stunning harbour views. This technology-enabled multi-purpose zone segued effortlessly from external visitor space to a multi-purpose social hub and served as a central gathering place throughout the day.
