Spread out over four levels the interior design employs the use of colour coding as a way of place making and way finding. A dominant colour family for each level is used to make each floor identifiable and memorable. In navigating the office during the shoot I quickly found myself planning out in terms of “the blue floor” then “the green floor” etc…
With the floor area of each level being very large the predominately open plan areas of cubicles have been punctuated with informal collaboration spaces to provide recognisable points or nodes. This avoids the ‘sea of cubicles’ problem many large offices can suffer from and aids in way finding and building up that navigational memory of a space. The informal collaboration spaces are of varying levels of privacy and size to accommodate different team dynamics and adjacent to these informal collaboration spaces are meeting rooms when greater privacy or audio-visual equipment is needed.
The full height glass partitions of the meeting rooms feature large scale graphic film privacy screening. This is a great alternative to plain frosting and the graphics used have been carefully tied in with the colour coding of each level - featuring images of quintessential Western Australian landscape - varying from forest canopies to a train of camels walking Cable Beach. My favourite is the forest canopy wrapping the “Porongurup” meeting room.
A real visual feast for an interior architecture photographer. Great work by Mode Design and Shape Group.
