BTIM invests in a flexible workspace by a leading design agency.
March 17th, 2010
The boutique investment firm BT Investment Management has received a $5.7 million fit out by workspace experts Geyer.
With the trend for employee-focussed spaces, which consider the environment’s impact on the individual’s work, an attention to improved communication and connectivity was crucial to the interior of the new office space.
Sitting pretty on Levels 14 and 15 in Sydney’s CBD’s Chifley Tower, the office space optimises on the buildings iconic views within the city.
“We set about to create a distinct and differentiated identity that would reposition BTIM’s image as a multi boutique firm whose focus was on its people and their relationships both internally and externally,” explained head designer Melinda Huuk.
Workspace culture was at the forefront of the layout of the open space, offering a maximum amount of shared areas for people to congregate and make regular contact with fellow employees.
All flooded with natural light, three communal workspaces are differentiated by their aesthetics, each of which is aimed at energizing and creating a inspiring look for workers.
In keeping with the principles of shared spaces within the office, client areas give onto work zones to allow a view onto the office environment, breaking down the client/employee boundaries.
Recreational areas feature throughout – a library stocked with books looks remarkably more domestic than commercial, with rugs and free-standing lampshades, serviced by a fully fitted kitchen making for a highly inviting office fit out.
