MCKINSEY & CO. Mumbai
This is a 40,000 square-foot corporate office in the basement of the Express Towers for the mulinational consultancy firm McKinsey & Co.
The basement, which was formerly a printing press for the Indian Express Newspaper, has been converted into a high-end office complex.
The design is about light and volume. Starting from the exterior, which is fitted with Rice Paper Facade Glass panels imported from New York that let the light in, to a central two story atrium, and reflective water body with cascading light fixture, light is filtered into the offices and conference rooms that lie on reclaimed land below the Arabian Sea.
