Reed Smith opened its Singapore office in 2012, based in Collyer Quay in the Ocean Financial Centre. Knight Frank commented that, 'Elegant, refined and contemporary are the three words used to describe the international law firm’s offices globally. The new office provides streamlined solutions, caters for growth and highlights innovation through materials. With a green initiative, and eventual Green Mark Gold certification, the office features a green wall at reception and green certified furniture and finishes, with the result being a calming and soothing aesthetic.'

Breakout areas

Law firm design is a major indicator of global trends. The report says: 'Financial and professional firms are rethinking office layouts now they are competing with tech firms for the best graduates. Breakout areas and brainstorming rooms are migrating from trendy ad agencies to law firms and banks.'
