The Great Room Hong Kong in One Taikoo Place officially opened, with interiors by HASSELL
Singapore-based co-working company The Great Room has opened its first location in Hong Kong, at Swire Properties' One Taikoo Place. Acknowledging that launching in a city that already has more than its fair share of co-working spaces is a brave venture, the people behind The Great Room say it has a refreshing approach, with a sprawling 24,000sqf (2,200sqm) of prime office space, and excellent design and hospitality credentials.
It aims to appeal to established companies, sophisticated entrepreneurs and 'grown-up start-ups' by combining the service and interiors of an upmarket hotel with the infrastructure of a top-notch office.
The Great Room Hong Kong was designed by HASSELL. Driven to create a sense of Hong Kong’s busy streetscapes and to bring to life the style and warmth synonymous with The Great Room brand. HASSELL carefully selected materials and custom furniture in tobacco, caramel and burnt sugar tones reflective of the brand.
"Beyond productivity, work is also about new conversations, connections, inspiration, contemplation and repose," says co-founder and chief executive, Jaelle Ang. "We want to design the perfect backdrop to the highlights of life happening."
