Western Environmental & Coterra Environment Co-locationProwse St, West Perth
Office Design & ConstructCost Per SQM
The co-location of two environmentally focused companies called for a design and fitout that supported their work ethos but also their positive energy. The head office for Western Environmental and Coterra Environment also had to be adaptively planned to satisfy staff fluctuations over the coming years.
Given the blank canvas was four walls with a balcony and lots of natural light, it was important to create interest within the floor plate yet maximize natural light as much as possible. Conveying an outdoor feel was part of the brief and the impact as soon as you leave the lift is evident. A central meeting space was wrapped with custom designed plywood panels. Adjacent walls were also finished the same to create balance of colour and style. Comfortable hanging pod chairs beckon visitors and staff to take a relaxing seat above a whimsical grass covering. And a quirky signpost lets you know you’ve come to the right place.
To create functionality within the floor plan, work spaces have been designed on a modular grid either side of the shared utility space. Each company exists within their designated area which sits harmoniously with adjacent breakout and meeting spaces. A great coming together of two progressive businesses of like mind was successfully achieved.
