When selling creativity is your bread and butter, it seems logical that your office space would be both creative in its own right, while inspiring creativity in your workers.
As the creative representation for over 100 Australian artists, illustrators and animators, seeing beautiful visuals is just a day-to-day experience for the folk at Jacky Winter. Artwork from different artists and illustrators make an appearance, along with other flourishes of charm.
More than just focusing on aesthetics, it was important for Jacky Winter that the new office bring in something more. It needed to be a space that reflects its culture and values. The result is a space that is colourful, fun and quirky, which is then balanced out with a level of clean design, ensuring the space remains conducive to work. Again, being a balance of colour and fun, with the limitless possibilities that come with a white wall.
From a programmatic point of view, the space houses not just offices and meeting rooms, but also some more unusual requirements such as a podcast recording room.
Lamington Drive, Jacky Winter’s gallery, takes up the ground floor. While Finally, a fully self-contained ‘sleep pod’ is available for travelling artists and visitors who need a place to crash.
The office design captures the identity of Jacky Winter while providing a mixture of spaces for productivity, with a few extras as well.
This office by Tom Robertson Architects is another example of minimalism in the office – Candlefox HQ.
