Melco’s Operation OfficeTaipa, Macau
As one of the most renowned gaming and entertainment operators in Macau, Melco Resorts & Entertainment wanted to ensure that their staff had the best working environment they could offer, an environment that could balance between work and play and bring creativity, energy and vibrancy to the team. Our challenge was to accommodate 1,000 members of staff from multiple departments and different company brands under one roof. Not an easy task by all means as this involved liaising with various departments and companies to find a balance with the size of office through to the adjacency of departments.
The brief was to design an unconventional but practical office with an ambiance that is young, hip and vibrant. Unconventional because, unlike most offices, this office wanted to move away from formal way staff communicated or operated, opening up areas where different departmental teams could meet and work. With their current staff scattered across Macau organizing team meetings were impractical so our client wanted to streamline the office and provide a practical solution and enhance productivity.
The raw architectural elements were balanced with an eclectic mix of furniture that further enhanced the unique and quirky design. A playful element was introduced in the furniture selection with a combination colourfully upholstered classic wingback chairs and using over-scaled large trunk boxes as coffee tables and metal studded egg chairs.
