Leading Australian architecture and design practice, Gray Puksand, recently completed a fit-out for a new headquarters within 130 Lonsdale Street, Melbourne. Teaming up with the design team, Aspect provided a range of furniture solutions for this agile, modern workspace that places the health and wellbeing of employees front of mind.

The project ranged across four floors in Melbourne as well as two floors in Sydney. These dynamic workspaces showcase principles of biophilic design throughout, incorporating natural materials, neutral colours and patterns reminiscent of nature.

The workspace features Aspect’s Zurich 5 workpoints in a range of six typologies, complemented by Harbour focus pods, also equipped with Zurich 5 sit-to-stand desks to facilitate an adjustable, focused work area. The focused workspace is offset by a range of collaboration hubs, featuring Hive connected sofas in four velvet colours.

Key to the overall design is the Green House, an informal meeting space that allows employees to gather in small to medium groups. While a variety of modern furniture in pastel blue, pistachio green and warm ochre characterises this area, it is defined by a striking ceiling feature that recalls rippling water. Panoramic views of the north of the city further extend the connection to nature, as does the natural stone flooring, timber detailing and subtle textures of the fabric upholstery.
