MAKE Creative has designed a new shared-workspace for Edge Agency and Creative Oasis.
January 11th, 2016
Working with a low budget to create a striking, raw space, MAKE’s final build features industrial overtones in a 1970s office building.
Housing 80 people, the flexible and informal workplace overlooks a striking urban view of layers of rooftops and buildings rising up towards the city and features a uniquely positioned core – close to the main façade, creating a sunlit but narrow corridor of space.
The design from MAKE positions the breakout area along the main façade, and inserts a kitchen space inyo this compressed corridor. Already existing concrete structures, slabs and new services are left exposed and paired with plywood for a modern industrialist vibe. Wrapped in a painted black band, the space is given a sense of rhythm through the breaking up of sightlines through windows. A bank of plywood meeting rooms creates a backdrop to the overall space, with central shared utilities slicing through the centre.
Street artist Brett Chan was commissioned for additional interior decoration work, through the use of a black and white graphic backdrop to the main workstation area. Joinery pieces work with this design and were developed to be movable, re-positionable and flexible, and include movable felt pinboards, large leaning white boards as well as a system of customised flat-packed tables in the breakout space.
