Workplace design is a multifaceted and intricate business. A successful project is one that adheres to and delivers on a brief while raising the design stakes through innovation and creativity.
Over the years there have been many projects that have embraced best practice, received accolades and awards, and presented new styles of workplace functionality. With the opening of NAB’s (National Australia Bank) new offices at 700 Bourke Street in Melbourne, however, a new benchmark in workplace design has been achieved.
NAB required products that not only provided utilitarian service and a bespoke fit, but, as a global corporate player, excellent design was integral. Through a unique collaboration with world-class design studio Schamburg + Alvisse, Zenith had the capacity to provide cutting edge design in workstations, corrales, custom booths, built-in soft furniture and meeting tables for the project.
Elements such as the triangulated architecture, architectural details of the internal fissures and the internal design of the workplace, which balances privacy with transparency and permeability, were incorporated into products, thereby adding another dimension to the interior.
A project the size of 700 Bourke Street was immense, with Zenith supplying more than 2300 workstations, 62 meeting tables, 219 booths with built-in soft furniture and 139 corrales.
