Hyundai Capital’s new European headquarters eschews hierarchy and embraces creativity, while conveying the company’s commitment to design and professionalism. A dramatic spiral stair provides direct and convenient access to all floors and contributes to Hyundai Capital’s culture of community. Amenities include a living room, a game room, and pantries that catalyze employee collaboration and socialization. Full-height glass offices and open-bench workstations maximize daylight’s reach. Furthering Hyundai Capital’s goal to flatten hierarchy, executive offices double as meeting rooms when the executive is out. This diversity of work settings creates a highly collaborative environment where ideas, culture, and information circulate freely. Finished with a deceptively simple color palette of white, black, and grey wood flooring, and furnished minimally, the workplace is a blank canvas for the business’s daily activities. Cove lighting throughout gives the space an ethereal lightness that further reinforces the intellectual quality of the environment.
