Abu Dhabi, UAE
Design for a new bank headquarters over 12 floors in a new purpose built office tower. The new tower had an expansive atrium space which needed to house a retail branch for the bank, reception, security and a cafeteria.
The office floors provide high end accommodation throughout. Executive areas and Private Banking facilities are included on the upper floors. A large staff restaurant is provided along with auditorium, meeting and training rooms.
General office accommodation is distributed across 11 floors. Extensive consultation was undertaken to review options and agree the strategy for positioning cellular office spaces and open plan work areas.
In total 1,100 staff will be housed in the tower and a variety of facilities has been provided to ensure a happy and productive workforce. In addition to the above a number of informal meeting and touchdown spaces were included, alongside breakout areas, library and a gymnasium.
