In collaboration with IPDA and Wool + Hay, we transformed R/GA’s Melbourne office into a dynamic workspace that seamlessly blends modern design with functional versatility. From custom joinery in communal areas to innovative furniture solutions like custom Drum + Base tables, every detail was meticulously crafted to foster collaboration and creativity. Our partnership delivered a space that embodies R/GA’s brand identity while enhancing productivity and teamwork.
Crafting Collaborative Spaces
R/GA sought to replicate the vibrant atmosphere of their Sydney office while infusing it with a distinctive Melbourne vibe. The challenge lay in transforming what many would see as a cold concrete shell into a vibrant and inviting workspace.
In crafting tailored solutions for R/GA’s office, we knew that functionality and aesthetics needed to function as one. Our custom joinery installations served as focal points for communal interaction, seamlessly integrating with the office’s design ethos. Additionally, the incorporation of Drum + Base bench tables and meeting tables equipped with acoustic paneling not only enhanced collaborative brainstorming sessions but also contributed to a conducive work environment by minimising distractions.
Crafted Spacial Solutions
The custom joinery we meticulously crafted played a pivotal role in shaping the character and functionality of the space. Our bespoke solutions were designed to foster a sense of community and conviviality. From tailored cabinetry to bespoke countertops, every element was thoughtfully curated to enhance both aesthetics and practicality, seamlessly integrating with the overall design aesthetic.
Celebrating success with R/GA
The final outcome was truly outstanding. Working together with IPDA and Wool+ + Hay, we seamlessly integrated brand identity, practicality, and communal areas in what might have appeared as a stark industrial setting. The culmination of our efforts was met with resounding approval from the client. The fit-out exceeded expectations, a testament to the collaborative approach and attention to detail. R/GA expressed delight in the transformation. Their involvement throughout the process as key to the successful outcome.
Custom Joinery for Communal Spaces
Our team crafted custom kitchen joinery to foster community and interaction within the office’s social hub. This bespoke solution facilitated informal gatherings and impromptu discussions, creating a welcoming environment conducive to collaboration and connection. We also crafted custom moveable storage, giving the R/GA team the ability to divide collaborative space into smaller areas whenever they want.
Drum + Base Tables
Recognising the importance of collaborative brainstorming sessions, we installed Drum + Base tables within the meeting rooms, coupled with acoustic panelling for sound reduction within the room, white boards and pinboard for brainstorming. This innovative approach transformed traditional meeting spaces into dynamic hubs for idea generation and problem-solving, empowering teams to visualise concepts and iterate ideas in real-time.
Pinnacle Workstations for Deep Work & Collaboration
For tasks requiring focused attention while still encouraging collaboration, we implemented linear Pinnacle workstations. These ergonomic workstations provided employees with dedicated space for deep work, complemented by integrated features that facilitated seamless communication and collaboration with colleagues.
