The Boardroom at the HSBC Tower

Architecture, Commercial

8 Canada Square (or the HSBC Tower) is the global headquarters of the HSBC Group. Foster + Partners were originally appointed as the architects as they had designed their previous head office in Hong Kong.

Earlier this year I was commissioned to photograph inside the iconic HSBC Tower at Canary Wharf.

HSBC Group is one of the world’s largest banking and financial services organisations. HSBC Group serve more than 40 million customers worldwide through a network that covers 64 countries and territories in its geographical regions: Europe, Asia, North America, Latin America, and Middle East and North Africa.

The building has 45 floors and houses approximately 8,000 employees.

Externally, the curved corners soften the form, and the transparent shaft is capped with an illuminated ‘halo’ – a distinctive element on the skyline.

The interior is equally as impressive with increasingly spectacular views as you climb the levels. The interior has been updated on more than one occasion with TP Bennett involved with the level 14 team space.

The boardroom is situated at the top of the building, as you would expect, with a spectacular view of One Canada Square, against an incredible London skyline. This is a big-impact interior, designed to impress clients and remind employees of the company’s prestige.
