HSBC History Wall, New York


The success of the HSBC Archives Gallery inspired the roll out of a series of History Walls in their offices around the world, including at HSBC’s iconic 452 Fifth Avenue New York headquarters.

Project Details

In March 1865, HSBC opened its doors for business in Hong Kong, helping to finance trade between Europe and Asia. A local bank in Hong Kong subsequently grew into a global financial institution. Leveraging the heritage of the global company with local historical references, we designed a series of History Walls incorporating graphics, objects and audiovisual in offices from Birmingham to Tokyo.

The HSBC Tower at 452 Fifth Avenue wraps around the iconic Knox Building, a New York designated Beaux-Arts landmark on the National Register of Historic Places, built in 1902.

Our other projects for HSBC include: Life on the South China Coast, HSBC Archives Gallery, HSBC Money exhibition, HSBC 150th Anniversary Exhibition
