The team at Enero needed to bring together their boutique network of marketing and communications businesses under one roof and without losing the identity of each. The various companies were previously situated around Surry Hills and Pyrmont until Enero saw the benefits of agile working consolidating their subsidiary businesses across one floorplate within neighbourhoods. The result; a transition from separate to together, from owned to shared.
Designed and delivered in collaboration with Amicus and The Bold Collective, the variety of spaces allows employees to select an area based on the type of activity they are performing. The result; optimised efficiency, enhanced functionality and significant savings on space and rent.
Floor to ceiling glass panes surround an internal, cavernous courtyard; an abundance of natural light spilling in from overhead. Across the courtyard, the continuation of glass panes offers a picturesque glimpse into Enero’s workspace; a hive of activity and the beating heart of a creative world.
The arrival space also includes a series of informal meeting booths with finishes and colours designed to play on the notion of perspective. The breakout/bar was always a key component of the design as the Enero team loves to socialise. Our designers drew inspiration from Enero’s long standing association to Pyrmont and designed a wayfinding strategy and environmental graphics around key historical and contemporary elements.
Our experienced change managers who are highly at ease in cultural change programs, assisted Enero in implementing their hybrid working policy allowing their employees the flexibility to work from home.
Enero’s identity is evident upon arrival with its iconic neon branding sprawled across an expansive and welcoming reception area. Lighting marries with earthy, wooden textures to create a richly inviting interior.
Co-locating Enero’s businesses has transformed the space into a thriving powerhouse of collaboration and creativity. Key to the project was balancing the needs of each individual business. The result is an office broken into bite-sized neighbourhoods with bump spaces sprawled throughout to encourage connectivity.
