M Moser receives two AIA IR awards for design excellence

We are pleased to announce that two M Moser-designed workplaces have received International Region (IR) awards from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) in 2017.

Hosted at the prestigious Lobkowicz Palace, Prague Castle, this was the AIA IR and Continental Europe’s first joint International Conference. M Moser project leaders and members of the AIA attended the ceremony to share insight and celebrate these award-winning works. Several architects from M Moser’s European office also became new members of the AIA, and look forward to share knowledge across AIA Europe and International Chapters.

These two awarded projects share a focus on design excellence and sustainability, which we explore in more detail below.

Citi Tower, One Bay East, Hong Kong – Honor Award, Interior Architecture

A model of sustainability and employee engagement, Citi Tower at One Bay East features a unique approach to the traditional office banking environment. Achieving AIA’s highest, an ‘Honor’ award, this state-of-the-art relocation project consolidated five buildings into one new, flexible and vertically integrated campus. Transcending the concept of ‘work hard, play hard’, the space moves beyond work/life balance to promote work/life integration, believing better health and wellness can lead to better productivity and loyalty. Located on the 5th floor, the community storey transforms the workplace through connectivity and balance by creating an inviting space to bring people and ideas together.

I was very impressed by the way in which a new corporate culture and employee empowerment had been at the forefront of the design process and had been implemented with clarity and elegance.”
