The success of a business is arguably dependant on its ability to create a company culture that provides employees with ample opportunity to make meaningful contributions in an environment that they find interesting, and more importantly, inspiring.
“When you’re happy in your work environment, you’re happy at work,” says Brooke Barr, one of approximately 800 employees at Bosch’s new headquarters in Victoria. As one of the world’s leading multinational engineering and electronics companies, Bosch is synonymous with German design and engineering excellence.
Bosch’s philosophy for Inspiring Working Conditions (IWC) follows principles similar to activity-based working (ABW) but differs in the desire to foster an uplifting and encouraging place for its staff. “Collaboration is an important part of any workplace, our new headquarters with its inspiring working conditions embodies this approach,” says Mounir Kiwan, Corporate Affairs Manager.
Designed by VIA Architects, the new headquarters in Clayton, Victoria shows the company’s diversified activity portfolio, which includes supporting new business and R&D initiatives.
To match Bosch’s innovative and collaborative focus and maximise employee comfort and inspiration within a space, VIA architects specified approximately 5,904-square-metres of modulyss Alpha 942 carpet tiles, which were supplied by Gibbon Group. “We were really happy with the tone and consistent variation across the large floor. The carpet tiles are wearing well and blend seamlessly across the floor,” explains Clarissa Young, Senior Interior Designer at VIA architects.
