St Kilda, Melbourne
Dunlop Goodyear had acquired a blank-floor space in St. Kilda, Melbourne and required a complete office design, layout and furnishings plan for their National Support Office.
They wanted a light, open and roomy space where their 55 plus employees could work effectively. They also wanted to inject some colour into the room, to ensure it wasn’t a boring or dull environment for their employees. We both decided upon flashes of orange on the ergonomic chairs, tying in with their brand identity. They worked closely with our in-house design and layout team, to choose bright fabrics and streamline desk designs and enhance the space made available to them. The end result balanced a professional and modern open plan feel.
Dunlop Goodyear’s contact with Integrity Office started early, and therefore we were able to complete the office fit out ahead of their relocation. Since the office space required ‘enlargement’ through the removal of particular walls, fresh colour on the walls and new carpet, Integrity Office had to meet tight deadlines to ensure that the fit out was completed ahead of schedule.
Dunlop Goodyear used open plan ‘team’ workstations, perfect for departments that require constant communication between employees to achieve their goals more efficiently and to make good use of all the natural light through the exterior windows. Integrity Office are well versed in designing work spaces for open plan workstations, using the available space effectively.
We also achieved the space planning solution of creating a boardroom that doubled as a training room to maximise Dunlop Goodyear’s space with the design of an operable wall system for greater flexibility.
As with most office spaces, Dunlop Goodyear also needed a new kitchen designed, including a breakout area for staff. Here we positioned ottomans, tables and chairs around the room, to give it a spacious and relaxed feel. Planter boxes were placed in small nook areas to enhance this look.
The fitout was tailor designed for their particular space, the requirements of their business and their brand identity. Integrity Office assisted with the design, construction, office furniture selection and layout – to create something truly unique.
