Our 20-year relationship as Bloomberg’s global workplace design partner began with the pivotal change in the workplace strategy approach of their Hong Kong office in 1999 where the team worked closely with Mike Bloomberg. It extends to our most recent work on the UX Rooms at its London headquarters, designed by Foster + Partners.
That ground-breaking workplace design project emanated from a strategic ‘Stay or Go’ analysis of Bloomberg’s Finsbury Square campus performed by its London office in 2009.
For the London team, this relationship represented an opportunity to grow our sustainability capabilities and deliver market-leading sustainable workplaces.
Sustainable achievements: As global leaders in sustainable business, Bloomberg and M Moser created measurable, sustainable workplaces worldwide.

Three floors of office space are linked by a suspended feature stair that provides convenient vertical communication and an opportunity for impact branding. It wraps around a 1.3 tonne acrylic sign highly visible from the glass lifts and the atrium within this multi-tenancy building.
We were tasked with achieving an exquisitely detailed office design to the highest possible environmental standards situated within the Dubai International Financial Centre, a Federal Financial Free Zone administered by the Government of Dubai.
The selected property incorporates a fully glazed double height expanse on top of Currency House. In essence, the architects created a glass-roofed conservatory overlooking the DIFC. This proved a tremendous challenge, considering the need to address solar gain, the acoustic demands of its newsroom, an evolving workplace design aesthetic, and a global commitment to sustainable practices.
User control in the workplace
Blinds descend to cover the double height glazing, providing control over the work environment to staff during searing solar conditions. The panelling suspended above enables better acoustics and acts as a feature with shifting colour control throughout the day.
Located within the prestigious V&A Waterfront development, the office occupies 11,700 square feet on the 4th floor of the Safquay Building. This prominent position provides views of the harbour with the spectacular back-drop of the Table Mountain for Bloomberg TV’s live broadcasts.
To deliver the first Interior Design & Construction project to achieve LEED Platinum on the continent of Africa, M Moser carefully guided local contractors throughout the process of achieving Bloomberg’s sustainability goals for the project.
One of the primary workplace design challenges was to reflect the local environment and culture within a standard multi-tenanted office building while maintaining the framework of Bloomberg’s corporate guidelines.
The workplace design and finishes throughout the office were inspired by the industrial shipyard surroundings within the immediate vicinity of the building. The combination of exposed ceiling services, polished concrete flooring and woven metal mesh wall cladding subtly references the surrounding industrial aesthetic.
