Cult

Cult

Established in 1997, Cult (formerly Corporate Culture) formed to provide not only exceptional designer furniture, but also a high level of customer service, a combination not yet experienced in the Australian marketplace.

In his endeavours since then, company founder and director Richard Munao has built one of the most comprehensive collections of brand partners in Australia and New Zealand. Cult has grown from its first location in Sydney to now include showrooms in Melbourne, Brisbane and Auckland as well as distributors in Canberra, Adelaide and Perth.

In addition to founding Cult, and supporting strong international partners like Republic of Fritz Hansen, Poltrona Frau, Magis, Cappellini, Emeco, Carl Hansen & Sons, Cassina and Lightyears, Richard is actively involved in discovering and mentoring emerging Australian and New Zealand design talent. As founder of Cult’s Design Journey Competition, which began in 2004, Richard gives designers throughout Australia and New Zealand the opportunity to have their designs prototyped and put into production.

NAB Place

The National Australia Bank’s (NAB) Brisbane Headquarters, NAB Place, designed by global architecture firm, Woods Bagot, sets a new benchmark in collaborative workplace environments.

Suncorp

Sometimes the most highly evolved designs are incomplete. When conceptualising the new Suncorp headquarters in Sydney, the interiors team at Geyer worked to the idea of ‘designing to 80%’. The result is a radical take on the oft-used idea of workplace flexibility. While the building caters to the needs of its residents in the present, it comprehensively avoids dictating what these needs will be in the future.

Mirvac HQ

When builder/developer Mirvac decided half-way through the development process for the EY Centre at 200 George Street, Sydney to move their headquarters into six levels of the building, it was a vote of confidence in their own project.

TVNZ Television Centre

With all this buzz around ‘human focused’ design, architects and designers are having to think far more creatively around how to best integrate ‘responsiveness’ into workplaces – especially if your client is a rapid live news outlet. For New Zealand firm Warren and Mahoney, the design of Television New Zealand’s new Auckland headquarters was driven by their interest in the ‘power of people’ and the translation of their collective behaviours into the built form.

Willinga Park Equestrian Centre by Cox Architecture & Sally Heiatt Interiors

Place-specific design is so very de rigueur. But beyond the obvious, how is place-driven design being strategically integrated across both macro and micro aspect of a mega development? This was Terry Snow’s objective for his best-in-class Willinga Park Equestrian Centre – and Cox Architecture have delivered.

Luxury used to mean the consumption of precious objects and items. Then it became the consumption of exclusive services. Now, it’s all about “transformative experiences” – this is luxury 3.0. And Carr is pioneering this outrageous new archetype with one of 2017’s most Instagrammed projects.

Chifley Plaza Sydney by SJB

The shopping mall is making a comeback – but not in the way you might expect. SJB reimagines the retail experience at Sydney’s iconic Chifley Plaza through a clever pairing of Manhattan Art Deco nostalgia and a design strategy that appeals to our hearts and our feet.

Gilbert + Tobin Barangaroo by Woods Bagot

Design that reflects its local environment is a huge focus for practising architects and designers, and Sydney’s Barangaroo development is a hotbed for this kind of thinking. Gilbert + Tobin’s new Barangaroo workplace, designed by Woods Bagot, draws inspiration from the rich history and landscape of the site, while nestling nicely into Sydney’s new commercial identity.

Russell McVeagh Auckland by Warren and Mahoney

The legal sector has traditionally adhered to a strict workplace hierarchy, with senior staff allotted a private office and entry-level employees assigned to the ‘open-plan’. Designed by Warren and Mahoney, the new head office for New Zealand law firm Russell McVeagh, challenges the antiquated workplace approach with a daring, material-rich agile strategy.

PwC Melbourne by Futurespace

Deloitte Perth, by Geyer

How does the world’s most influential auditing firm self-audit? Designed by Geyer, the new Deloitte Head Quarters in Perth is a stellar case study for self-analysis and designing for the (sometimes opposing) needs of many in a single space.

480 Queen Street Brisbane, featuring BHP Billiton by BVN

What happens when private business goes public – in a commercial design sense, that is? Brisbane’s most recent commercial addition, 480 Queen Street by BVN, is designed to create a sense of community inclusiveness. It’s a new-think approach to the traditional public-versus-private model.

KPMG Headquarters Barangaroo by Davenport Campbell

Workplaces are no longer just singular production hubs, but company showrooms used by and with clients. Designed by Davenport Campbell, the new KPMG headquaters in Barangaroo transforms the brave new world of agile working into a workplace to call home.

Jemena Melbourne by Woods Bagot

In an era where technology and the ‘digerati’ rules all, we feel a strong need to make close online connections with the world at large. But how does this sense of connectivity and community translate to the physical workplace, and by extension, its design? In Jemena’s new Melbourne headquaters, seven floors and 800+ people have offered up a juicy challenge in exploring how design might create a sense of communal familiarity in a large-scale environment.
