Designed by Futurespace, PwC’s new Melbourne and Sydney headquarters aim to challenge the ideology of the traditional client showroom. In order to continue to innovate and remain leaders in their field, PwC were aware the client engagement paradigm would need to be the key focus in the brief for the design of their new Sydney and Melbourne offices. Futurespace embraced this challenge by creating a design that places priority on access to cutting-edge technology and an array of collaborative working spaces, as well as breaking down barriers between staff and clients.
The furniture chosen for the project aimed to combine proven elements from hospitality and retail design with residential appeal. Prisma modular system by Derlot Editions has a two-fold effect of enabling interaction between clients and staff as well as providing the opportunity to introduce unexpected colour combinations. Nebula screens by Tacchini provide acoustic barriers in a collaborative workspace, whilst avoiding a closed off and unapproachable look. Synergy is achieved between the Melbourne and Sydney PwC offices via several design elements, including a sophisticated meeting room with textured wall panelling and Strain lounges by Prostoria.
