Completed 2020


Equigroup, an Australian company acquired by the German asset management firm CHG-MERIDIAN, faced challenges within their office space. The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the need for an efficient workplace strategy. Amicus established a strong relationship with Equigroup’s leadership team who recognised the necessity for an updated office design to improve employee experience. Through careful consultation and design development, an open plan office was created to optimise the floor space for hybrid teams and improve cross team collaboration.

During the pandemic, Amicus spearheaded a comprehensive Workplace Strategy for Equigroup. Our Strategy, Technology and Leadership teams engaged Equigroup's workforce through surveys and workshops, discovering their preference for a hybrid work model that combined remote and office-based work. Recognising this opportunity, Amicus collaborated with Equigroup's local leadership to create a vision for a modern workspace that prioritised employee well-being and productivity.

The breakout space maximises the harbour views with an open plan kitchen while the booth seating can also be used for casual meetings. Warmth is brought into the space with timber and statement pendant lighting, contrasting the bold navy of the brand. Throughout the space, the concrete support columns are integrated into the design maximising the architecture of the building, providing seating, work areas and bench space. The resulting solution was an Activity-Based Working environment, offering diverse and collaborative workspaces for meetings, focused work, privacy, and fostering interdepartmental connections through a central social area
