Our brief was for a creative, contemporary and highly collaborative space that reflected the nature of the tourism organisation and its people and strengthened their identity as an innovative group. New spaces allow for a variety of work methods: work activities can ‘leak out’ and staff can colonise a ‘third’ type of highly collaborative and stimulating space if that suits their task at hand. Within this overall design philosophy, the interior design detail reflects the iconic natural and cultural beauty of Tasmania. An acoustic ceiling feature reflects our iconic mountainscapes; a dark ceiling river defines the main circulation route; and the red ‘container’ hub defines the heart of the space while also echoing apple packing sheds and farm outbuildings. This is an excellent example of the future of workplace design, with work-based activity zones combined with personalised work points and flexible meeting spaces to bring a large corporate team together while maintaining opportunities for personal expression.
