The brief for our McLachlan 2 (stage 1) workplace fitout was to create a modern, executive workplace where all spaces would be filled with natural light and warmth, and for this to be achieved within an extremely tight timeframe. Functionally, the greatest challenge was in rationalising an unusual and angular floorplate to create four large, executive offices that could operate independently, an impressive boardroom, a casual meeting space and other support spaces. Since the floor-space available was quite modest in relation to the functional brief, the more casual spaces in the program were designed to be flexible enough to accommodate several uses, and all spaces were designed to have views to the outside to provide a greater feeling of space.
