BNI (Bank Negara Indonesia) engaged the services of OSCA with the vision of creating an office environment that is in line with current workplace trends, namely an open concept office which facilitates open communication and collaboration among employees. The new office was envisioned to take the design concept up a notch without being overextravagant as this could potentially put off their current clientele.
Complying with their standards, client-facing areas such as conference rooms are designed to exude a hospitable ambience. Meanwhile, a practical approach was applied to the back office, with the area designed to maximise working space and to take advantage of natural lighting. A significant amount of the office space are likewise designated as social spaces to encourage interaction and collaboration between colleagues.
Overall, the new and improved office space emanates a more genial atmosphere in comparison to a more retail-like impression found in the previous office. The project was well-received by the management team at BNI’s headquarters, who intend to integrate the same design approach posited by OSCA into their upcoming branches in the Asia-Pacific.
