EFG Hermes New Regional Headquarters

Project Description

The development accommodates approximately 900 of the group’s staff. The 4,000 m2 footprint building was completed and fully operated in April 2010. It consists of 2 basements, a ground floor, and 3 typical floors with a total built-up area of 28,000 m2.

The building, located at the far northeastern side of Smart Village, not only breaks the mold of business premises in the region, but also represents a physical manifestation of EFG Hermes’ values. The design embodies the company’s core values of transparency, dynamism, and drive to be a pioneer and leader in its field of business.

With emphasis on sustainability, the premises were built using environmentally friendly materials. All amenities support EFG Hermes’ objective of maintaining a healthy work-life balance for staff by creating superior work and after-hours conditions.

The building layout is split into two halves bordering a 4-floor-high naturally lighted atrium and a main entrance.

Communication bridges connecting office spaces pass through the atrium. The open space office layout was designed to allow maximum light into the work area. The ground floor level provides all services required by the staff, including 3 different food outlets with indoor/ outdoor eating spaces, a data center (145 m2) and a well- equipped gym. Office layouts allow for break areas in all floors to encourage social interaction among staff.
