LOCATION The Concourse, Singapore
TOTAL FLOOR AREA 23,000 sqft
TIME TO COMPLETE 08 weeks
The impetus for the project was a new workplace design standard developed in Germany which is being rolled out globally by Boehringer. An underpinning planning principle of the standard is to ensure that all employees have access to natural daylight. As one would expect openness and transparency are key features of the design.
Boehringer no longer use desk top phones which they have replaced with a Microsoft Lync enterprise platform. To support this initiative each floor has been provisioned with a bank of “Lync” rooms to assist in promoting private communication. Other features of the new workplace include brainstorming & library spaces, pit-stop workstations for road warriors and silent talk lounge areas in addition to the usual meeting and break-out facilities.
Corporate branding is a key element of the design and the SNX team worked closely with Boehringer’s Corporate Communication and Management Teams to develop a bespoke workplace branding package.
LOCATION Suntec Tower 4 , Singapore
TOTAL FLOOR AREA 4,000sqft
TIME TO COMPLETE 6 weeks
After more than 7-years in occupation of a smaller tenancy at Tower 4, Suntec City, Kerry Consulting – a leading recruitment firm took nearly 4,000 sqft of space at Level 31 within the same Tower.
The brief was somewhat unusual in that the Client who is a keen yachting enthusiast, wanted the public spaces within Kerry’s new office to present like the interior of a luxury sailing yacht.
Drawing inspiration from classical yacht interiors, the Sennex team sort to create spaces that met this brief. Impeccable lines are evident throughout with an elegant simplicity of materials and an abundance of natural day-light.
“A high degree of attention was paid to auditory privacy in the detailing and construction of all the meeting rooms and interview suites which was another essential aspect of the Client brief. The end result surpassed the expectation of the Client.”
A series of five private interview suites, a medium sized meeting room together with a large conference facility are wrapped around a spacious internal corridor which extends from the reception – this layout ensures that the majority of the private spaces benefit from the dramatic sea views.
Full height crystal clear glass side panels beside each interview suite’s doorway ensures that daylight is allowed to flow into the corridor thereby enhancing the overall feeling of spaciousness.
In essence, the space planning and design strategy was to give light to people wherever possible which was particularly important given the relatively modest size of the interview suites.
Carefully selected book matched teak veneer panels with a clear lacquer finish have been used in reception together with fabric dressed acoustic panels to the balance of the walls
The simplicity of the palette created the opportunity to use artwork as a means of branding the space. In this regard, a unique collection of black and white photographs and navigational chart prints were selected to provide visual points of interest throughout the spaces and to again emphasise the distinctive nature and exclusivity of Kerry’s offices and business.
The use of mirrored stainless steel panels in both the visitor seating alcove and conference room also creates the illusion of depth and therefore space.
The display of Asian antiques in the entry space was used as a tool to give both balance to the reception and as a means of communicating the local origins of the Company.

From the Client’s Perspective, the project was seen as a strategic business process im-provement project and not just a straight facility project. Sennex understood this and was able to design and package a ‘solution’ that fully supported the Client’s objectives”
Swire Pacific Offshore (SPO) occupied disparate and fragment-ed floors with the Concourse Building – an iconic office tower located at the Eastern Fringe of the City
In 2013, an opportunity arose to consolidate their operations into two contiguous floors within the same building. The pro-ject to consolidate their operations also presented SPO with another opportunity; to re-organize their office so as to en-hance communication, collaboration and teamwork and, to drive workplace efficiency and productivity gains
The most successful aspect of the design is the flexibility and functionality of the layout which provides a range of environments that support knowledge work and which promote collaboration. Recognizing the challenges of open plan work environments, Sennex adopted an activity based planning approach whereby employees are provided with a series of work settings that they can use as opposed to a single office or cube.
In addition to dedicated desks each work group benefits from semi private collaborative spaces, enclosed collaborative spaces and privacy rooms for focused work activities or private calls.
More formal meeting spaces are provided at a centralized meeting hub which comprises stand up meeting rooms as well as project and video conferencing facilities together with traditional meeting room formats.
LOCATION E-Centre, Singapore

TIME TO COMPLETE 16 weeks
Philip Morris International occupy approximately 23,000sqft of office space at the E-centre, Bukit Merah.
The existing fit-out was approximately 9 years old and PMI were seeking to re-organise and revitalise their office to provide additional headcount together with a more appropriate balance of meeting, recreational and community spaces.
Sennex was engaged to carry out the project which had to be executed whilst the Client remained in occupation.
The town hall is fully enabled with audio visual equipment so that large scale presentations can be made and regional offices can link up and share information.
The project was ’complex’ requiring careful planning and proactive stakeholder liaison and communication so as to minimise business disruption. The project which ran for just over 4-months was split into 5-phases.
In response to the Client’s brief, FengShui elements had to be incorporated into the design and existing elements, maintained. FengShui also influenced the colour palette.
retained key elements of the existing meeting spaces & work areas thereby defraying cost
a new community town hall capable of holding up 75 persons as well as a new centralised meeting hub, reception and block of sanitary facilities.

The project’s scope was to establish a new regional office at 200 Newton on the floor directly above Celgene’s existing 3900sqft local office.
Sennex was also tasked with upgrading the Client’s existing Level 3 Reception space so that there was a consistency in branding across both levels. The new workspace similarly needed to harmonize with the Level 3 office in terms of look and feel. Spatially the new tenancy has a much higher ratio of cellular offices in comparison to the Level 3 space, 11 in total, with only 4 workstations.
One key design initiative was to create a transparent work environment with full height glazed partitions throughout the office in order to increase both the flow of natural light into the internal office areas and to convey a feeling of openness and approachability.

A key Client requirement was the creation of a townhall able to accommodate up to 40 persons on an ad hoc basis. In order to fulfil this requirement and fully utilize the space for day to day operations, SNX created a flexible townhall space centred around the breakout area which was capable of absorbing the adjoining meeting rooms and conference room spaces. This was achieved through the use of a proprietary glazed and acoustically treated operable wall system which allowed the spaces to be combined to create a bright and functional large format community space.
The end result of our close collaboration with Celgene was officially opened in a launch ceremony conducted using the new town hall space.
