Studio X created a multi-use office headquarters for the product development company, ThreeSixty Group.
The project consists of working office with a full suite of facilities, such as meeting rooms, huddle booths, boardroom and large kitchen break out area in and amongst a series of showroom spaces that are designed to stage and showcase the companies vast range of consumer products to their clients, buyers of major U.S. retailers.
The resulting project is a radical departure from ThreeSixtyGroup’s previous, more conventional, partitioned office. Studio X created a space that could be a global showcase for this highly innovative and fast-paced global company. The project represents an intersection between workplace, showroom, and retail – in the shape of a prototype FAO Schwartz store, also designed by Studio X. The project also features a series of custom designed illustrations capturing the attitude of the company and the spirit of Hong Kong. Studio X was responsible for concept to completion including full tender management and site supervision.
This project required us to carry out a comprehensive evaluation of the client’s specific business needs. They faced several challenges. How to encourage buyers of the major retailers to come, not to TST where most of their competitors are, but all the way out to Kai Tak. And then to have them stay not for the usual flying visit of 1 hour, but for a whole afternoon.
“ We appointed Studio X to be the lead design consultant to take us from a 7,000 sqft office into a brand new 17,000 sqft space - transforming it into our new International Headquarters.
We selected Studio X on account of their promise of providing a business-oriented and iterative approach to the way in which we would conceive and deliver the project. This approach contrasted with the slightly more linear ‘Design & Build’ approach offered by other design firms that we spoke with. Studio X delivered on this promise, and the space has helped to transform both our employees and our client’s perception of our position within the marketplace. In short, the impact on our business has been very positive.
The project process itself was swift, seamless and thoroughly enjoyable, with Rufus, Sam and several members of their team all being engaged throughout the project from conception, all the way through to completion; and even post-completion where they were able to help support us in fine-tuning certain elements.
Studio X also managed a fully transparent tender process allowing us to get the best contractor for the best price, which no doubt made the result more successful and helped ensure the project was delivered on time in accordance with the budget and the project program that Sam laid out and personally oversaw.
Since completion, we have received countless positive comments from visitors, and the space has become a destination for clients visiting Hong Kong.
I have no hesitation in recommending Studio X. They have become an important partner to our business and will be heavily involved in our future retail rollout plans ”
