RMIT New Academic Street

RMIT New Academic Street

The redevelopment of RMIT’s so-called ‘grey ghosts’ signals a much-anticipated final instalment in the University’s long – decades in fact – campus transformation.

NAB Place

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

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

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.

Jemena Melbourne by Woods Bagot

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.
