into-lighting-news-corporate-HQ The HASSELL design for the London headquarters of one of the world’s best known mining and resources companies was named Large Commercial Interior Project of the year at the UK’s Mixology Awards. The jury commended the quality of the design, saying it felt more like a high end residential home than a corporate workplace.  In her acceptance of the award, HASSELL UK Practice Leader Felicity Roocke, said the headquarters’ setting in the heart of London’s historic St James Square presented the opportunity to explore a new direction for the organisation’s workplaces internationally.  “It was a unique opportunity to create a workplace that is based as much in hospitality and residential design as it is in corporate office design. The result is a high quality space that reflects both its status as the global headquarters of a world-class organisation, while sitting very comfortably as part of its prestigious West End location.” INTO Associate Lighting Designer Duncan Hamilton comments “ It was fantastic opportunity to work as lighting consultants on such a mold breaking corporate office project. Our extensive experience in both commercial and hospitality lighting design really helped in challenging the standard approach to office lighting design ”.
