MKDC were given the task of creating a new workplace for Business News in the heart of Perth’s CBD. Business News understands the impact that optimal wellbeing has on individuals, teams and communities. This brought the opportunity to bring to life a brand new way of working for the respected media company who sees the immense rewards that strategically considered, high-quality interiors can bring.
A recognition of the highly social nature of collating and gathering news was reflected on Level 3, which features a large and open tea prep space, connecting to open workspace areas, both the north and the south. The design brief focussed on maintaining sightlines and the transference of natural light across the entire floorplate. The bar is a key element to the design and is used as a visitor touchdown and function area, as well as an informal meeting space and publication layout bench. Large format sliding doors open into an impressive boardroom and the whole space can be opened up for larger functions.
“We believe the new workplace is a strong declaration of Business News’s commitment to its staff, as well as a place they are proud to share with their clients.”
MKDC Designer, Alexis Kusinski, worked closely with Buildwell Group and Business News to create a dynamic workplace interior where staff would feel ‘intrinsically connected’. Read more about how and why communication was key to the new media hub, in our Insights article.
