Gravity Coworking, Australia’s first luxury coworking company, needed to expand its existing Sydney premises to cope with the increased demand and provide enhanced coworking facilities. Driving the brief was the requirement to create an atmosphere that optimises connection and collaboration, as this is key to the functionality of a Gravity space.
The result was also to allow space for quiet, focused work, integrating the tested and proven design style, furnishings and creative elements, however elevating them to the new design. It was important that existing and new members would be greeted with a familiar, just revamped product.
Valmont planned an open, welcoming environment that presents high-end, professional finishes and allowed for individual and collective space, and the ability to adapt as numbers grow. Main lobby areas are kept open and fluid, surrounded by glass walls and offering continual line of sight from the Concierge’s standing desk to the members’ floor.
Core work areas are kept open and free of any tall impediments, allowing the floor to ceiling windows to flood the spaces with natural light. The working floors are delineated by ‘pop-up’ meeting rooms and informal meeting spaces. These key points give relief to the large open-plan working areas while also directing foot traffic and aiding wayfinding.
Breakouts and kitchens take on a casual-industrial aesthetic and provide the perfect amenities for members. These multi-purpose spaces can be used for everything from individual lunches to larger members’ functions.
Tropical plant hangers appear throughout, maintaining a fresh and vibrant feel, while the boardrooms offer high-end AV facilities. Smaller meeting rooms complement the larger boardrooms and provide additional meeting facilities finished to professional standard. While staying true to the Gravity brand, each office has subtle design elements reflecting the character of its geographic location.
Gravity is a high quality members’ workspace, reinterpreting the traditional coworking space and converging the worlds of business and lifestyle to attract a network of business leaders, industry experts, innovators and entrepreneurs.
Gravity provides an aspirational environment for members to meet, innovate, collaborate and take advantage of the positive forces at work.
