Welcome to The Indesign Edit: Health Check. In this issue, we explore three of the best health and aged care projects and the outstanding products that contribute to achiever the overall design.
How to make a global tech giant with a transient workforce feel at home? Find out with Sydney’s new Microsoft Technology Centre.
How, as adults, do you design a hospital from a child’s perspective? That was the challenge given to the team behind Perth Children’s Hospital: JCY Architects and Urban Designers, Cox Architecture and Billard Leece Partnership (BLP), with HKS Inc.
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.
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.
The old-school ‘client showroom’ is in desperate need of a shake-up – but where to start? Designed by Futurespace, PwC’s new Melbourne headquaters is purpose-built to break down traditional barriers between staff and clients. The results are extraordinary.
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.
How are designers problem solving the often opposing needs of the one-size-fits-all space? Harry The Hirer is a solid success story in puzzling together a series of complex needs.
