HSBC, Stratford City, London
New Flagship Branch
Project Duration:
12 weeks

At 175,000 square metres, Westfield Stratford City, in East London, is one of Europe’s largest indoor retail and leisure centres and was at the heart of the Olympic Park for London 2012.

It was at Stratford City where we delivered a unique new flagship branch for HSBC, a ‘blue chip’ financial worldwide organisation with which we have been associated for circa twenty years. As the Stratford City development would play such a central role during London 2012 HSBC wanted to create a one off branch that would showcase and promote this world renowned financial organisation and the services it offers.

The new £1.4m, 500 square metre flagship branch was within the secure area of the Olympic Park, which meant that security was paramount. Everyone who attended the project went through stringent security checks prior to entering the site, over and above the normal security requirements for this client. We started with an empty shell and fourteen weeks later we handed over a stunning environment that HSBC was delighted with. Having been presented with the new design concepts it was clear from the start that this was going to be special.
