Private Global Financial Services Client
Workplace / Fit-Out
CJFA were appointed as Architects to undertake this international project in Luxembourg on behalf of a private, global financial services client , supplying for the asset management industry. The project requirements incorporated a particularly strict timeframe to accommodate our client’s relocation from their existing premises in Luxembourg, and to mitigate any disruption to their day-to-day operations. CJFA’s approach incorporated a unique overall design intent to echo the contemporary ethos of the clients’ approach to their working environment - to arrange a positive working environment, to inspire staff, whilst promoting a positive working culture. As part of the design process, CJFA developed bespoke architectural installations and explored the principles of biophilic design, in order to create spaces and installations which are focused on the ‘wellness’ of staff whilst acknowledging the necessity for a consistent global identity.
The accommodation provided includes a mix of open-plan spaces (both large and small), break-out spaces, cellular offices and conference / meeting rooms. A canteen is also located adjacent to the courtyard area offering views outwards and designed to permit an adaptable space which may also serve to host ‘Town Hall’ events when required. The accommodation requirements to meet General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance has also been fully articulated. Acoustics have been considered in the context of ‘soft-surfaces’, where required - such as acoustic-ceilings, in conjunction with floor finishes. Modification to the existing heating, cooling and ventilation systems have been integrated within the design to ensure the technology of indoor environmental comfort is operating at the optimum level within the individual spaces to provide thermal comfort and acceptable indoor air quality. In tandem, lighting levels have been articulated to enhance employee productivity and well-being whilst maintaining a focus on energy savings and improved operational efficiency.
