Interiors for Hogan Lovells’ new office by MCX Interior

From the commercial interior designers:

As one of the top three most innovative law firms in North America, Europe, and Asia, Hogan Lovells strives to become a leader in diversity and inclusion.

Previously, the Hogan Lovells Beijing office consisted of two separate spaces, for corporate and intellectual property practice groups, located in different parts of the premier China Central Place building in the heart of Beijing’s central business district.

An opportunity arose to enhance their unity and inclusiveness by moving to a new, full floor space that became available in the same building.

Hogan Lovells took full advantage of this opportunity by engaging MCX Interior to create a thriving and inclusive workplace environment that will foster and empower their employees to succeed.

Inspiration for the Hogan Lovells new office design came from water and its edges, encapsulating the company's slogan for their commitment to inclusion –"One Hogan Lovells: many perspectives."

The water symbolises Hogan Lovells moving as one fluid team in harmony.

"On the edge of the water, we find life in various forms that offer new perspectives, reminding us to respect diversity and treasure identity and unity simultaneously."

The water concept appears throughout the design including in the space planning and even the ceiling light features that guide users throughout the office.

The lighting can change colours for various activities, events and internationally recognised holidays such as Spirit Day and periodic firm initiated awareness days to signify diversity and inclusion.

Employees can find a space to focus, collaborate or unwind at the water’s edge.

Glass walls on most perimeter offices maximise the natural light and views into the inner spaces.

The meeting rooms use a polarised electronic glass system in the operable wall that enables privacy inside the meeting rooms without impacting the office's openness.

Hogan Lovells’ new office also emphasises sustainability that will help their employees think, feel and work better in offices with more natural lighting, clean air, comfortable temperatures, lovely views of the outside and inspiring design.

The sustainable design features in this office that reduce energy and water consumption, introduce biophilic design and improve air quality.

Hogan Lovells is the first law firm ever to receive LEED Gold certification for its office anywhere in Beijing, China and is currently the only commercial interior office in the entirety of the China Central Place complex with LEED Gold certification.
