Sky Garden

If you live in London, you simply have to go up there at least once. I am still due a visit to The Shard, but I finally made it to the Sky Garden. Londoners named this building the Walkie Talkie for obvious reasons. Before the building was finished, the reflection of the sun on its…

Although I spent a few hours wondering around and visiting the glasshouses, the main reason for my visit was to see The Hive, which opened to the public just a few weeks ago. The design by Wolfgang Buttress is…

Lane Crawford – Hong Kong headquarters

A happy employee is a productive one. There is no doubt about it, our working environment is a determinant factor of how good we perform. This philosophy should be much more common than it really is.
