Since its completion in 2014, HSBC Quay des Bergues is widely recognised for its quality of space and refined use of artificial light. A series of seven renovated buildings with historically listed facades are merged together in a single development to become the new corporate office headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland. Architectural lighting is thoroughly ingrained in the fabric of the building, permeating the entire project from the centralised feature grand atrium, typical office levels, to the trading floor, staff floor amenities and restrooms. From spaces conducive of productivity to those made for focus and intimacy, architectural lighting is fundamental to the success of the project.

Fulfilling the aspirations of creating a prestigious new address in Manhattan, the Taiwanese Consulate is a renovated corporate office building and home to the Taipei Economic and Cultural Offices. SEAM provided lighting design services for public areas and typical office floor lighting, from concept through construction. A defining architectural statement is created in the grand double height atrium where custom feature wall provides a flexible exhibit display for curating cultural artifacts. Additionally, the lighting system designed for the atrium is multi-modal allowing the atrium to double as a performance space for special events that opens into art galleries at ground level and Mezzanine level. Theatrical performance lighting and architectural lighting are integrated into the lower ground floor auditorium including illuminated “skylights” that shine through the atrium floor above. A world class work environment and private offices are created on the upper levels.
