For its global headquarters, Invesco needed to address a shift in its business strategy — from a loosely connected group of distinct companies to an integrated global investment management business with a strong and cohesive culture. A centralized reception, conference center and trading room are grouped around a dramatic double-height space, evoking a grand hotel lobby or airline club. Glass is used extensively — all offices are transparent — allowing daylight to permeate the space. Brand themes are expressed architecturally through use of materials, a neutral color palette and an international modern style. The project is certified LEED®-CI Silver.
As architects, designers, planners and consultants, we partner with our clients on some 3,000 projects every year. These projects can be as small as a wine label or as large as a new urban district. With 2,000+ professionals networked across more than 30 locations, we serve our clients as trusted advisors, combining localized expertise with global perspective wherever new opportunities arise. Our work reflects an enduring commitment to sustainability and the belief that design is one of the most powerful strategic tools for securing lasting competitive advantage.
