Summerset is now one of the largest operators of retirement villages throughout New Zealand, after having opened their first village in 1997.
The company had outgrown its single-level occupancy in Wellington and required more space for their fast-growing operations. It was negotiated to expand their existing head office tenancy across two consecutive floors in Wellington’s Majestic Centre.
Summersets' new office boasts an open-plan design and collaborative layout across both floors. Gaze was able to ensure that this included a strong level of security without compromising flow and communication within the company. The space was built with great flexibility by integrating hot desks, quiet areas and multiple breakout spaces. In addition to being able to accommodate future growth, the new fit out has also been designed to improve team culture and connectivity.
Gaze absolutely came to the party and delivered in the extremely tight timeframe provided. Design options were promptly provided from a client brief, changes made per client direction and there was a lot of creative thinking
