We are truly proud of these awards.
Mexico City (PRWEB) August 22, 2007
HOK's Mexico City office earned the most prestigious interior design award in Mexico for its design of the HSBC Mexico Headquarters, a signature tower in downtown Mexico City. At the annual banquet of the Mexican Interior Design Association (AMDI), HOK accepted the 2007 National Interiors Award as well as the highest award for Corporate Interior Design.
Located on the prominent Paseo de la Reforma in downtown Mexico City, the 400,000-square-foot project represents the largest and highest-profile interiors project ever completed by HOK Mexico. The project is also pursuing another milestone as the first LEED® certified sustainable building project in Latin America.
HOK Mexico led the interior fit-out and designed the curtain wall of the façade of the building, main lobby and elevator core, and collaborated with HOK's Toronto office on the interior design of specialty floors.
"Having our work recognized as the best in Mexico represents a spectacular moment in our office's history and firmly positions HOK Mexico as the strongest multidisciplinary firm in Mexico," says Arturo PerezRivera, HOK Mexico Director of Marketing. "We are truly proud of these awards."
