Global Consulting Firm

Adapting local culture in modern architecture

Full Width Image

The new office for a global consulting firm in Auckland is an open, warm and welcoming space for clients, staff and guests. Enhancing the client's culture and brand expression, it creates a strong sense of place and a desirable destination for work. Located on the top floor, the tenancy has extensive views out over Westhaven Marina, the Tank Farm and Auckland Harbour Bridge.

Responding to the client’s desire to showcase NZ to their international clients and colleagues, the design centred on the idea of adapting local culture in modern architecture. Colours were customised for NZ and elements of the waterfront location were brought into the modern workplace – with natural materials and texture invoking a connection to nature.

The client's workplace requirements included multi-functional spaces as well as a range of focus areas. The nature of the client's business brings teams together from multi-locations – both physically and virtually – and includes the requirement for privacy when needed. The response for the client focused on user-centric design principles and advanced technology offering multi-functionality and choice.
