White & Case offices in Manila host the company’s global service center and local executive offices. The project’s primary goal was to elevate the idea of a business process outsourcing group (BPO) while combining White & Case’s brand with Filipino culture. Kirksey provided Interior Architectural design services through design development and visualization and worked closely with a local Architect of Record who documented the projects and saw it through construction administration.

“When White & Case decided to create a new home for their Manila office (four floors in a new SOM tower located in the heart of the City’s business district), Kirksey was selected based on their outstanding performance for the Houston office design. The team assumed the role with integrity, limitless creativity, and a strong commitment to repeat their earlier successes. Although the project is yet to be completed due to COVID-19 setbacks, White & Case believes the local team is going to be wowed by the quality of the design (which combines the White & Case brand with the local Filipina Culture) and by the efficiency of the workplace. In short, the client believes Kirksey has elevated the notion of a BPO to a truly first-class office space that will make every single White & Case employee proud. “ - Oliver Wilkins, Global Head of Office Design and Real Estate, White & Case
