Burnett’s Cafe for Leo Burnett

Bean Buro created an innovative and collaborative workspace for world-class creative agency Leo Burnett. Located in the Landmark East AIA Kowloon Tower in Kwun Tong, Hong Kong, the design inhabits two floors as well as a large external terrace, totaling 35,000sqft (1765sqm).

Inspired by an exchange of contextual narratives from the local culture of post-industrial Kwun Tong, the design encourages social interactions between staff to increase creativity and collaboration. The new office supports the dynamic working culture of a creative agency through a variety of spaces such as open plan work clusters, semi-private discussion areas, private meeting rooms, and enclosed offices.
