SOUTH MELBOURNE, VIC
Domain Group, a Fairfax Media company, is one of Australia’s leading real estate destinations offering an integrated multi-platform solution that spans online, print and mobile for the real estate industry, as well as home buyers, investors, sellers and renters.
Our brief was to create a space that encourages collaboration between teams and establishes an integrated culture within the Domain workplace.
Flexibility was required for open and closed conversations along with spaces for creative thinking and client entertaining and a variety of options for connectivity was deemed paramount.
Our solution addressed the need for a variety of spaces through clever planning and a diversity of space, marked by sculptural elements. Angled walls, irregular shaped furniture and ‘ribbon like’ creative zones are key – giving the space a distinctly contemporary edge. Limitations with the ceiling and the desire for natural light, created a need for walls to be lower. This was the origin to the idea of the ‘hut’ meeting room – a subtle reference to the real estate market.
The space was designed to be a visual statement of the brand, striking a balance between commercial and residential, reﬂecting the clients they represent. A palette of blonde, muted greys and blues established a calming atmosphere and timeless aesthetic, whilst a home-like environment is referenced with relaxed furniture, feature lighting and soft furnishings.
