NATIONAL AUSTRALIA BANK

National Australia Bank (NAB) appointed PDM to design and build its new Wealth Asset Management office in Hysan Place office tower (Causeway Bay, Hong Kong).

Following NAB's “Australia in Asia” motto, the design team came up with a fresh, contemporary but also timeless proposal where the solid values of the institution are represented with a very fine material selection of floor and wall finishes, including an elegant travertine, and where the heritage of the aborigine Australian culture can be seen on the art work in the main reception.
NAB project is focused on the high net worth clients, but it is at the same time a very flexible, functional and future-proof workplace: using high end operable wall systems, the work café, boardroom and waiting lounge can be connected to accommodate the entire office population during office gatherings, creating a space for mingling, socializing and building a sense of belonging amongst employees.
The project is LEED Platinum certified and has been purposely thought to provide a work environment that allows natural light to reach to every space, with all the enclosed environments built along the core. The work setting is a bench-based solution that stimulates collaboration in the open space area. Meeting rooms and other informal meeting areas are uniformly located and diverse in size and technology equipment, allowing end users to have choice in their daily journey at work.
In sum, in this work space PDM managed to capture the look and feel that NAB’s top clients expect and trust when they have to make important decisions about their wealth management, and where end users can benefit from the sustainable DNA and agile workplace principles that are illustrative of forward-thinking organizations like NAB.
