At its new headquarters in Amsterdam, Red Bull has continued to push the design boundaries, this…

It was the desire to fight this impression and to promote openness and greater community within different business departments that led investment banking and financial services group Macquarie to rethink how it housed its 1,800 staff in the City of London.
