The project involved the fitting out of 970m2 of high-end office accommodation to the 5th floor of One Molesworth Street; a five-storey 12,756m2 premium commercial office building with ground level retail occupied by multiple tenants. The Client, TD Securities; a Canadian Financial Trading company have located one of its European bases in the penthouse floor of One Molesworth Street. HLW collaborated closely with MCORM Architects in the delivery of a high-end commercial fit-out for TD Securities befitting of the base-build’s architectural quality and objectives of the brief, providing full Architectural and interior design services from inception to completion.
The workplace strategy that was adopted was for a professional, modern and enticing office environment that supports the Clients operational requirements and closely links with their other international offices, such as London, Toronto, New York and Hong Kong. For this reason, conferencing facilities in rooms with high acoustic performance and global IT banking networks were incorporated into the design.
Accommodation consists of a reception, open plan areas comprising of 98 No. sit-stand desks, collaboration and plug-in seating areas, flexible meeting rooms, quiet rooms, a large boardroom with folding walls that once opened can be used as a town-hall for conferences and training purposes, tea point, print room and mail-room. The external terrace is aptly located beside the tea point and can be utilised for social events, lunch and meetings as desired.
