The major challenge was locating two different business units – IBRD and IFC – under one roof, while sustaining their individual cultures. We designed each zone keeping this in mind.
World Bank was keen to portray the strength and power of their brand. To do this, we chose black as the primary colour of focus and we chose furniture in line with this strong brand image.
A well-designed reception, lounge, focus spaces, a conference room and diverse seating for informal meetings made up the corporate office. Overall, we delivered an elegant and a welcoming workspace where employees would feel pride, enjoy team spirit, and were creative and productive.
