ONE (Ocean Network Express), a joint venture created from the merger of Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Mitsui O.S.K. Lines and Nippon Yusen Kaisha‘s activities in the container sector, is a new major brand on the global shipping market, featuring a strong and clear image. 

1 The Opportunity

This project was developed according to the guidelines of comfort, hospitality, collaboration, innovation and style dictated by ONE, to face the company's major challenge: consolidating different business realities - including colleagues and ways of working - into one innovative and functional workspace geared towards employee satisfaction.

2 The Solution

The building overlooks the commercial port of Genoa and makes a visual connection with ONE’s shipping activities. Customized design details were scattered throughout the office space to evoke ONE'S main business. 

The core of the building (stairs, restrooms, lifts) was enlarged to include the ancillary activities of the new offices. This space was then enclosed by using a solid finish that suggests a container and defines its perimeter while forming a visual point around which the large corridor was then developed. According to the principles of activity based working, communication, collaboration and chill out areas were created next to large open plan areas with assigned desks. Besides traditional meeting rooms, the new workplace also offers plug-in workstations, standing meeting points, brainstorming rooms and work lounges. 

The result is a workplace that allows different ways of collaboration according to different activities and offering technological areas or spaces featuring a more domestic mood.

Special attention was given to the acoustic comfort: a combination of materials and technical solutions, like the use of different types of false ceilings and special carpet, helped identify different working areas while improving acoustic performance.

3 The Result

The offering of design and build services was also a formula for this project's success. The synergy between design and construction allowed for this project to be completed in a very short time.

The C&W Design & Build division was launched in 2018 by Cushman & Wakefield’s Project & Development Services.
