Minimalism is never a cliche when it is combined with elegance and style. Using a dark colour palette, this interior is elegance personified.

Knight Frank’s new office in Singapore reflects the firm’s status as a global real estate consultancy. The firm’s vision was for the workspace to embody its history and values, while also fulfilling the need for an agile new working environment that energised and inspired staff.

The new work environment personified modern professionalism– bright and energetic, comfortable and warm, with a hint of playfulness.

Occupying almost 14,000 sq ft in Ocean Financial Centre, the dynamic office is designed with productivity in mind. Open and accessible, the space was conceptualised for Agile Activity Based Working arrangements. Suiting different working styles for both individuals and groups also leaves a lasting, positive impression.

With a view overlooking the bustling Singapore CBD, the bold entrance reception area is defined by natural stone with accent highlights of gold-brushed stainless steel. The material palette of natural timber herringbone; warm, cosy echo panel wall cladding, and acoustic ceiling details of local Peranakan patterns were exceptionally pleasing.

The Knight Frank brand is reinforced through a History Wall that conveys the firm’s rich heritage. Hints of the company’s corporate colours help to invigorate the work environment, while touch greenery in the form of hanging plants has been placed in breakout zones to enhance performance and promote staff and client wellness.
