Leveraging our 20-year relationship, Hewlett Packard Enterprise engaged us to design and deliver a workspace that consolidates its team from two locations. HPE Melbourne’s new space is designed to spark innovation, support diversity and attract employees back to the office.
This destination workspace provides an elevated client and employee experience. HPE facilitated this by selecting a refurbished building which offers access to modern amenities, retail offerings, and a 5* end-of-trip facility. Such type of buildings typically supports active commuting to the workplace, such as biking or jogging, by providing secure bike storage, showers, changing rooms, and lockers. Emulating a high-end hospitality experience, the office provides a customer-centric space with an open ‘townhall’ area for events and informal meetings.
An agile and future-proof workplace
By analysing the specific requirements and behaviours of each department, our team developed a space with the tools and work settings to support inclusivity. Movable and dynamic components mean the space can adapt to team growth and change. Each zone is supported by the seamless integration of technology, showcasing the innovative legacy of HPE.
We created an environment that invites discussion and connection through warm, tailored palette planning, organic details and ambient lighting. From quiet zones for concentrated work to social and collaborative areas with acoustic treatments, the workspace supports diverse needs and workstyles. The multi-function conference rooms have a fully operable wall that opens onto the breakout and pantry area, allowing teams to gather in an informal setting.
HPE’s new workspace embraces Melbourne’s essence, integrating the city’s coffee culture into the central hub. Art deco-inspired joinery with natural elements connects with HPE’s brand colours, creating a unique ambience. The ceiling has been opened-up for an industrial feel, expanding the sense of space. We uncovered previously blocked windows to bring in natural light and views.
