Singapore’s ‘most unusual office’ revealed | 25 March 2013
A new Spencer Ogden office has been labelled the ‘most unusual’ in Singapore, according to a report from asiaone.com.
Designed by Space Matrix, the office was created with Southeast Asia in mind; paying homage to the region’s quirks. It features a giant statue of a Mongolian warrior and an opium bed. There’s an American diner, too, as well as basketball hoops – so staff can blow off steam.
“The design imports home and garden into the office space,” according to Space Matrix’s Eduard Moix, a project designer. He added: “Spencer Ogden’s design director believes that the whole design encourages productivity, collaboration and interaction at all levels.”
In fact, the office is meant to feel like a luxury home. Staff are able to use an on-site swimming pool and gym, plus each day, ‘Power Hour’ takes place. During this 60-minute period, staff must remain on their feet and on the telephone. It has proven very successful, with Spencer Ogden calling it “wildly popular”.
Spencer Ogden is actively recruiting for the office at the moment; looking for specialists within the Power and Renewables, Mining, Oil and Gas and Trading industries. Although it will likely have no difficulty finding prospects, given the office they’ll be working in, Spencer Ogden is also offering top-performers all-expenses weekends away to celebrate their successes.
Speaking to sooilandgas.com about its place in the region, the business’ founder Peter Ogden said: “This is a crucial place for Spencer Ogden to be.”

Since the middle of March, the Singapore dollar has […]
