The Ortec brief was to accommodate staff in a light-filled open-plan workspace, in a complete break from their existing dark and enclosed office, which lacked windows and natural light sources.
The new workspace makes use of the fantastic tree-filled views over St Kilda Rd/St Kilda junction and draws in a large amount of natural light. Tailored to the flexible working arrangements of 16+ staff who come and go, the new office incorporates hot desks, boardroom, quiet room and two meeting rooms. The open-plan workspace, without back-to-back, invites staff collaboration and interactivity.
The feel is light-industrial, highlighted with oak finishes and the freshness of well-positioned greenery.
