About the project
Winton Group is a British investment management firm founded by David Harding. In the United States, Winton is registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission as an investment advisor and with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission as a CTA, and is authorized by the Financial Conduct Authority in the UK. The company trades on more than 100 global futures markets in a wide variety of asset classes and on global equity markets. Winton wanted the design to be influenced by the geographical location and culture in order to differentiate the Abu Dhabi office from the others.
The Design guidelines to be followed were to create an office space that is uncluttered, sophisticated, bespoke, simple colours, clean and crisp with a chartroom display. Taking into consideration the client’s needs, the KPS design team created a space that achieved a welcoming visitor experience through warm and sophisticated design with Arabic touches that define the Middle East. Natural textures, tones and colour have been used in a modern way with a high level of detail. Openness and transparency throughout the design are key – the reception area takes visitors seamlessly into the lounge and work spaces, and boardroom which offers stunning views of the Abu Dhabi corniche.
