T he Workplace
as
Home

Addressing Hyatt's growing business needs across the Asia-Pacific and
Greater China regions, M Moser was selected to design two offices in Hong
Kong and Shanghai. Marrying hospitality and workplace, the firm used
a guest-centered approach to the office designs.
"While a hotel is a home away from home that helps us unwind and
takes us to a place we long to go to, a workplace is about creating spaces
that encourage collaboration and interactions," says Ramesh Subramaniam,
design director, international, M Moser. "We combined the philosophies of
both into one celebratory community space to achieve a work environment
that inspires from the outset."
In a nod to traditional Chinese courtyard homes, both projects
embody the essence of multifamily living and blur the lines between indoors
and outdoors. Residential furniture, warm wood tones, and memorabilia
from regional Hyatt hotels provide familiarity and comfort throughout
38

the office. "[These details] contribute to a hospitality-inspired journey
that fosters meaningful connections and brings people emotionally closer
to the Hyatt brand," Subramaniam says.
Each office also celebrates the visitor's arrival-a fundamental
element of the guest experience-with open and hospitable reception areas
and expansive communal spaces where staff and visitors can relax, work,
or engage with others. Social interactions are further emphasized
throughout the space using pre-function areas as well as open kitchens
where people can connect over drinks and snacks. The resulting spaces
elevate the workplace, offering a home away from home.
