The new headquarters for the Lane Crawford Joyce Group in Hong Kong has it all in spades – style, spirit, quirkiness, humour – making it a truly people-friendly space

Located on the south side of Hong Kong island, Wong Chuk Hang is transforming from an industrial warehouse area to a vibrant commercial and creative district, galvanised in large part by the scheduled extension of the MTR network to the area in 2015. The changes being heralded were recently amped up when the Lane Crawford Joyce Group brought its four companies – Lane Crawford, Joyce, Pedder Group and ImagineX Group – together for the first time under one roof at its dedicated new workspace in the district.

As Jennifer Woo, chairman and CEO of the Lane Crawford Joyce Group explains, “The time had come to create a new workspace that is a physical manifestation of who we are, while bringing all our business together, and providing the creative surroundings to stimulate inspiration and innovation which is integral to our business.”

With design execution by CL3, the Lane Crawford Joyce Group headquarters covers seven floors, each with an open plan of 25,000 sq-ft. A fluid, democratic, open plan environment was created to facilitate communication and collaboration. A partition-free, wireless workspace offers staff the freedom to choose their work environment, from communal to solitary based on their specific needs. Full-height glass curtain walls maximise natural light and offer views of the South China Sea.
