Maddocks Lawyers, Melbourne
Designer: Bates Smart
Project Manager: Montlaur
Photographer: Peter Clarke
One of Melbourne’s premier law firms, Maddocks were relocating to 3 new floors at Walker Corporation’s premium Collins Square Development in Docklands.
The firm has worked alongside architects Bates Smart to explore ways of using the space innovatively in order to promote new and efficient ways of working that are supported by technology.
The new workplace designed by Bates Smart offered a more open work environment, designed to nurture both the collaborative and focused workstyles of their legal staff. This includes a greater diversity of work settings to suit varied workstyles, with increased mobility supported by an advanced technology infrastructure and Aspect’s custom furniture solutions. Staff are better connected in the new workplace, working on floorplates double the size of their previous floors at 140 William Street and connected by a dramatic spiral stair and generous atrium across the 3 levels.
The Bates Smart design team worked with our in-house product designers to create a semi-bespoke solution that specifically addressed their vision for the furniture solution. Aspect Furniture were successfully contracted by Maddocks and worked with Buildcorp Melbourne to provide all the open plan and Legal Office workpoints, mobile storage solutions and free standing storage elements in the fitout.
