Marsh McLennon is an American multinational insurance and consulting company that through its four subsidiaries helps its clients manage risk, and strategy and navigate a dynamic environment. During the year 2018, the decision was made that three of these companies – Marsh, Mercer, and Guy Carpenter – would go from separate offices to a common area on the Swedish market, and they then turned to Studio Stockholm for a partner who could assist in local search, workplace strategy, and design concept.
The choice fell on a culturally and historically classified property, which together with Marsh McLennon’s global principle for its offices meant a process with a focus on monitoring the property’s conditions and at the same time making room for the modern brand and culture that Marsh McLennon represents. The result is a cross-fertilization between the house’s Art Nouveau architecture and the overall brand platform, where the house’s architectural details have been preserved and strengthened while contemporary expressions have taken place in material choice and color scheme. In addition, social areas have been created that enable common flows and identity.
