The new headquarters of Standard and Poor's (S&P´s) are based in the financial district of Mexico City and are located in the Penthouse Floor of Park Plaza in Santa Fe. Standard and Poor´s occupies 3,400 usable m2 divided on two floors in this case, the Penthouse level with an additional Mezzanine. We first worked with Standard and Poor´s about twelve years ago when we designed their corporate offices in a nearby office building. This time around, S&P´s needed twice as much space for their present employees and future growth.
A harmonious blend of timeless materials including stone, glass, marble, wood, soft textiles and creative lighting provides a distinguished and stylish atmosphere. Splashes of color add interest and coziness to the space. The accent color in this case is red which was used sparingly throughout the space in areas such as the carpet, accent walls, lighting and furniture. Carefully selected art work was placed throughout the place and wonderful design pieces like for example light fixtures. All of these artwork, materials, furniture and design pieces were the key to the beautiful and balanced interior design that turned out. It was very important for us, as it is in every project, to carefull y select each piece to give a unique touch to each area of the offices. As a result, users and visitors are extremely comfortable and happy with the place.
We as interior designers, work among our office with Workspace specialists, Lighting specialists, Furniture specialists and other consultants. We always try to integrate all these areas to our projects and give them an important role everytime. In this case, it was no exception. We succesfully involved the designers, artists and consultants into the project by working in a collaborative environment.
As a result of the new planning, the office changed the way it used to work, allowing more communication between partners and employees through new casual collision areas and much more efficient spaces. All work services are height adjustable, even in the private offices and allow the employees to work comfortably throughout the day. In general, the m2 ratio per person has lowered substantially without sacrificing comfort and efficiency.
The client is very pleased and excited with their new space, so much so, that employees from other locations would like to come and work in their Mexico Headquarters.

The global online community that celebrates design projects featuring commissioned artworks.
[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
