Our client, one of Australia’s largest early learning providers, was after an extensive refurbishment of their premises as their existing space was creating silos and barriers between teams impeding collaboration and interactions. The vision for their new space was to enhance a remarkable change in the way they work inside and outside the business, creating a strong sense of community for visitors and driving innovation across the organisation. Our client was keen to take the opportunity to link the organisational vision with the new space and achieve a cultural reboot.
With many legacy challenges to overcome, Amicus were engaged to undertake research with leadership and employees to define a strategy which transformed the organisation through the physical, technological and behavioural elements of the workspace.
Operating within a tight time-frame and to a strict budget, Amicus ensured their brief was executed successfully with a creative flair. The design presents green spaces flowing throughout and soft pastel hues, with homely finishes to integrate their culture to their Headquarters.
Predominantly focusing on innovation as it was a key part of their vision and way of working, the new space is flexible and creates a stronger community through breakout and outdoor areas. Phone booths and workstations have been broken up by collaboration zones enhancing a functional and agile space.
A great impact of change has been measured through increased motivation and staff wellbeing. The connectivity between teams and centres has reached a maximum capability and visitors are impressed by this innovative and beautiful fitout.
