MPH Architects has created a flexible office space to reflect the HomeStart Finance corporate ethos, and support the well-being and connectivity of its employees and customers.
Gibbon Group worked with MPH in providing Tretford Lagoon Blue (shown here) which achieved the right pop of colour for the fitout and also matched the corporate standards.
HomeStart Finance is a State Government organisation focused on making the dream of owning a home a reality for South Australians. To reflect the company ethos, the goal of the fitout was to be professional whilst friendly and inviting to both visitors and staff.
Providing a residential warmth and comfort underfoot was acheived using quarter turned Tretford Silver Birch modular tiles (shown here) – constructed using goat cashmere.
The new corporate headquarters facilitated the co-location of teams previously split over multiple floors. The fitout is devoid of any closed offices with staff of all levels, from call centre staff to management, all seated in open-plan.
Block planting, custom suspended slats and acoustic blades have been employed to zone the open space. The work areas are connected by a centralised staff café and lounge whilst shared meeting spaces, breakout zones and acoustically separated quiet rooms have been dispersed throughout to provide flexible working spaces and Adelaide CBD views accessible to all employees.
Tretford is manufactured with renewable Mongolian goat cashmere, which offers extreme durability and a wise environmental proposition.
The open and transparent fitout promotes better interaction and accessibility between staff and is homely and welcoming to a wide range of visitors and corporate clients.
