Edelman Hong Kong

Hong Kong, China

In expanding their existing Wan Chai offices, Edelman came to Gensler to create an active workplace with a relaxed environment.  In order to incorporate existing low ceilings into the design while still creating a feeling of spaciousness, the floor plate was opened, expanding and visually connecting the space— and boosting collaboration and productivity in the process. Completed on a limited budget, the reconfigured layout removed previous barriers between departments and relocated a conference room to increase its visibility. Although the number of desks was reduced, additional conference rooms and increased creative space accommodate both projected growth and teamwork—the crux of Edelman’s work process.
