Sydney-based air conditioning company – approached us with a $2 million budget to create a new workspace fit for its exciting future. As the local market leader is now competing on the world stage, pushing the boundaries of what it means to work at a successful manufacturer was pivotal to this delivery.We took the 6000m2 floorplate and created a cutting-edge, yet harmonious workspace. The vision was for a new space fit for visits from international prospects, while remaining functional and inspirational for the client’s trade and office-based employees.
Guided by the company connection with air, the interior concept was inspired by the natural elements of water, wind, and, of course, air – guiding the creation of a cohesive workspace that brings together disparate parts. We succeeded in creating a space that inspires confidence in visiting high net worth clients, while also providing the practical, efficient work environment that tradespeople, manufacturers and office staff deserve.The central staircase adds efficiency by enabling employees to traverse work more quickly. The large, homely kitchen was crafted to further strengthen colleague connections, where both tradespeople and executives now mix and further build the relationships. Dark and sophisticated executive areas were carefully designed to lure international clientele, while the light, oak-finished main workspace provides a motivating environment full of bright possibilities for employees to continue to grow the client. Bringing a contemporary city feel to a suburban manufacturer is a truly innovative approach. It is now changing the way people think of industrial sites.
