LEARN ON INTERNATIONAL PROJECTS

The new CapitaLand headquarters located within CapitalTower in Singapore is future focused. The office interior design needed to be flexible enough to meet today’s needs and to remain relevant in the long term. CapitaLand's key drivers were Porosity, Camaraderie, Character, Progressiveness and Endurance. The interior design was an opportunity to engrain these concepts in the workplace. They wanted to align the physical space with the working styles to foster collaboration, creativity, connectivity, flexibility and a more egalitarian operating model.

Transformation through research


Geyer developed CapitaLand’s Workplace Strategy and Guidelines. Through leadership workshops, site audits, observational studies, work diaries, and employee surveys, we identified opportunities to better align the workplace with the way CapitaLand’s people are actually working, while ensuring the office design will be sustainable for a growing business.

Highly mobile already


As well as identifying misalignments in the physical environment, our research discovered that certain groups within CapitaLand were highly mobile already and that a significant number of employees wanted to work in more mobile ways in the future providing a strong case for developing an activity based working program.

Future occupancy model and technology


The Workplace Strategy & Guidelines addresses the key issues of supporting mobility, enhancing internal and business partner collaboration and increasing efficiency through three aspects: an occupancy model that will change over time to support growth, the types of spaces and workplace layout that supports an evolving occupancy model, and the technology needed to support the occupancy model and enhance the physical environment.

Diversity of spaces


The final design concept was about ‘exchange’ and ‘hubs’ enabling staff to meet and collaborate across business sectors and divisions, with the ability to revert to a more conservative approach when required. A diversity of spaces has been provided for introverted and extroverted tasks, together with an open, flexible work floor where senior CapitaLand staff are physically accessible.

Move freely depending on work


Ensuring the ability to work privately and maintain confidentiality whilst limiting noise and distraction was a key factor in the development of the workplace. Each workspace was designed with an activity in mind. Work areas provide open pods and work benches for teams to lay out and discuss developments and designs, and enable them to move freely into different areas depending on the work they are undertaking.

Destinations and flows


Destinations are provided on each floor to create a number of points around which the work environment flows. These destinations are the main entry, the Level 30 main reception, a staff recreational area on Level 24 called The Pitstop, and the Social and Meeting Hubs accommodated throughout the stack. These destinations provide an entry and connection point on each floor and have been created to encourage movement and collaboration through the business, both within and between the different divisions.

Space reflects CapitaLand’s brand


The main reception on level 30 houses the executive meeting rooms, display suite, Group CEO office and boardroom. On entry, the space reflects CapitaLand’s brand and portrays the work the Group does through the use of architectural detailing, finishes, form and lighting.

Offices are grouped in clusters


A significant amount of formal and informal meeting spaces have been provided on each floor to further support teamwork. Offices are grouped in clusters around the core to support team based work and semi-transparent corner meeting spaces are provided for collaborative work to allow for visual transparency whilst providing audio privacy. For further privacy, staff can step into one of the many focus rooms or phone booths to continue a private conversation.

Moving people, not walls


Future flexibility has been considered in terms of ‘moving people, not moving the walls’. Lack of ‘ownership’ of common facilities enables a greater degree of flexibility in the future, allowing people to move as the business grows and changes whilst still having access to meeting and project spaces.
