A Sense of Place and Purpose


IMC Pan Asia Alliance Group (IMC) is a Singapore-headquartered investment holding company with a diverse investment portfolio. This includes shipping, ports, resources, real estate, investment management and lifestyle industries across the globe. Inspired by IMC’s belief that business is intertwined with the sustainability of its greater environment and the well-being of an individual, our design approach is aimed at tapping the senses to redefine the boundaries and expectations of a corporate office environment.

The interior design is the result of an experiential and experimental approach between ID21 and the client. Drawing inspiration from luxury hospitality, and fusing elements pertaining to art, biophilia and wellness, we sought to create an immersive and sensorial experience for guests and employees alike.

In wanting to make a lasting first impression and create a sense of arrival, the front-of-house is reminiscent of a well-appointed yet welcoming hotel lounge. Soft curves define the space, from the striking ceiling feature, to the carpet and loose furniture positioned symmetrically beneath, right down to the custom-made counter in a beautiful bronze-chrome finish. A cove curtain adds a soft touch behind the reception counter, while cleverly concealing a storage area and the back of house. An ambient scent further elevates the visitor experience and creates a calming mood.

The pantry, with its textured self-service bar counter, cosy furniture and café-style seating projects a communal and hospitable vibe. Coupled with floor-to-ceiling windows that provides one with views of the outdoor area, the pantry can be seamlessly connected to the boardroom located adjacent to it by opening up the operable walls, creating more space for larger gatherings.

From here, the workplace experience offers employees plenty of options, depending on how they want to work. Cosy booths with curvilinear forms ensure in-between spaces are efficiently utilised, while encouraging spontaneous moments of interaction between employees.

Guided by the circular facade in a separate wing of the office, a curved corridor leads to meeting rooms of various sizes. Some double up as spaces for meditation, recreation and exercise. Here, a refreshment island offers not just wayfinding directions, but also a quiet nook for work and respite from the busyness of everyday life.

To encourage the flow of natural light, the work zone is flanked by full-height glass windows and doors. Here, a 11-metre-long communal work table makes clever use of two otherwise imposing concrete pillars, creating a prime spot for collaborative work or hotdesking.

Stepping through the doors, one is led to the outdoor garden terrace and greeted by fresh air, extensive landscaping, and modern outdoor seating. This green retreat doubles up as a multi-purpose hub that allows employees to take their work or lunch break outside, indulge in a spot of herb gardening, or relax with fellow colleagues after a hard day’s work. It is also utilised as a spacious event and exercise space, be it during the day or when the sun sets.
