The client required a relocation that enhanced operational efficiencies and team performance across the business. The office space covered approximately 4,500 square metres housing approximately 380 staff members.
Gaze undertook the design management of Bauer Medias' relocation to Victoria Quarter. The new space was to be open creating intrigue that showcased the buzz and connectivity within their company. They also wanted to have an industrial look with minimal standard wall finishes that maintained a raw and industrial feel. Plenty of hard surfaces, such as exposed and galvanised steel and polished concrete were incorporated into the design. Black autex ceiling panels and rubber runways were selected and designed to help dampen any noise.
