An engaging environment.
Wesfarmers Insurance has been an integral part of the 309 Kent St building for a number of years, and over time various fitouts have been undertaken without real understanding of how to embed the brand or ensure overarching visual consistency.
Following expansion to an additional floor in the building, the brief was to plan and implement a new concept for their office space – one that encompassed the new floor and refurbishment of three existing levels, integrating Wesfarmers brand values with imagery and finishes.
The new space was also to become a workspace that embraced the new way of staff interaction – collaborative, open-plan and enhancing productivity. This was achieved through creating a simpler, open layout enhanced with free-form workstations, collaboration areas, breakout zones and quiet meeting corners, while a blend of natural materials, subtle finishes and and striking highlights ensured an overall engaging experience for staff.
From its origins in 1914 as a Western Australian farmers’ cooperative, Wesfarmers has grown into one of Australia’s largest listed companies and employers. Its diverse business operations cover: supermarkets, department stores, home improvement and office supplies; coal mining; insurance; chemicals, energy and fertilisers; and industrial and safety products.
