Cundall’s Hong Kong office fitout was awarded the bronze medal for Best Sustainable Design in Asia Pacific in the Design Excellence Awards by Interior Design Confederation of Singapore (IDCS).
The Design Excellence Awards sets to recognise the best of interior design in the commercial, residential and public categories in Asia Pacific.
Cundall’s Hong Kong office is a showcase in how to cost effectively deliver a first-class office fit-out whilst creating a healthy, efficient and future proof space. This is both kind to the environment and puts the wellbeing of occupants at the heart of the design.
An upcycle approach is incorporated within the sustainable building design of the office. A decision was made to reuse existing materials rather than buying new alternatives. The reception utilises reclaimed wood from an old Hong Kong fishing trawler and locally sourced material. The in-house lighting team has demonstrated that reusing existing light fitting does not comprise quality, and have created a lighting scheme which meets the WELL standard by reusing the existing fluorescent
Andrew Marks, Director, commented: “We are very proud to receive this award as it is a reflection of the hard work the office put in. Our Hong Kong office demonstrates our creativity and love of great sustainable design. We are delighted the importance of implementing sustainable design is being recognised in the workplace.”
