Client Objectives

ANZ Breast Cancer Trials Group was seeking a new location in Newcastle to merge their two existing offices into one facility. The new office design and fit-out needed to accommodate an in-house training centre and include a reception area that integrates with the back of house administration space.

The overall office design needed to reflect the company’s brand.

Project Specifics

The client had large individual offices in their previous office design and needed to reduce the individual workspace size per person ratio. An open plan layout was designed to give employees a standard sized workspace with multiple meeting spaces, a collaborative office meeting pod and a large breakout area to increase employee engagement.

The colour palette implemented throughout the office fit-out is highly reflective of ANZBreast Cancer Trials Group corporate branding. The office design especially highlights the famous symbolic pink ribbon of the cancer foundation and translated it through coloured accents and floor finishes. This specific brand element created a dynamic and directional influence with the ribbon leading the way to the reception area and through and around the back of house spaces.

The large breakout space was designed with the idea of bringing the outdoors in through careful selection of materials, loose furniture, ambient pendant lighting, graphics with nature imagery and feature ceiling beams.

Pops of brand colours feature throughout the office design in the floor finishes, columns, feature walls and greenery. The feature coloured flooring patterns help to visually define specific spaces which was essential for the open plan design.
