First addition to Foster’s HSBC Hong Kong Headquarters 

The Hong Kong headquarters of HSBC has unveiled an innovative new glass and steel lobby designed by one of Hong Kong’s newest design firms. The 320 sq.m. transparent structure, stretching the length of the plaza beneath the HSBC building from Queen’s Road Central to Des Voeux Road, was conceived and undertaken by One Space Ltd, an interdisciplinary architectural and technology design team established in 2004 by Greg Pearce and James Oliver. The firm has a design staff of 7 and an annual turnover of some HK$18 million (US$2.31M or Euro1.8M). It specialises in providing appropriate solutions to financial services industry clients through the careful integration of architecture and technology. One Space won the contract in February 2006 and the completed project was handed over to HSBC in November 2006, against a highly demanding delivery timeframe. This first major addition to the Lord Foster-designed building since 1985 creates a single point of reception to the upper floors within a minimalist glass enclosure that significantly enhances access control and customer experience. A key feature of the new space is the ‘HSBC Asian Story Wall’, conceived as an Asian companion to London Canary Wharf’s ‘History Wall’ by Thomas Heatherwick Studios. Here the One Space team created the largest and most advanced high-resolution flat-screen installation in Hong Kong, which presents the Bank’s regional heritage in a stunning animated display, integrating the latest audiovisual technology advances with harmonious architectural detailing and lighting. The enclosure was engineered by global consultants Arup, and lighting was designed by Fisher Marantz Stone of New York City. The new lobby was opened to the public by HSBC Group Chairman Stephen Green on 23rd November 2006.
