About the project
This project is a coming of age for ABN Group and provides a better working environment for their staff (aligning with ABN’s values of staff wellbeing & corporate social responsibility) and a more comprehensive and cohesive experience for their clients. 

The new space allows for more onsite collaborative interactions between the various ABN Group business divisions that occupy the space, which in turn provides valuable support to industry training programs and promotes career opportunities within ABN Group and the building industry. All of this forms the holistic reimagining of the ABN Group businesses. 

Designing for diversity has been achieved throughout the fitout; low lockers for those who are wheelchair bound, parents (male or female) room from breastfeeding/feeding or pumping, a wellness room for sick and multi-faith requirements. In terms of workpoints, fixed sitting, fixed standing and a variety of other informal vs formal, open vs enclosed and collaborative vs focus settings are distributed equitably around the fitout to ensure every workstyle is supported. The entire workplace was also designed to be non-hierarchal so people of all roles of the business sit together. 

For ABN Leederville, a Perth flavour was added when the design team joined forces with local craftsman Jack Flanagan, who made all of the curtain hangings and curtain rods, as well as the 'neighbourhood panels'; boards for staff personalisation that border collaborative work zones. We worked collaboratively & directly with Jack, who heard our design concept and helped us develop bespoke pieces for the fitout.

As part of the DIA’s Accredited Designer program, we offer Continuing Professional Development (CPD) through our learning resources. CPD is most effective if undertaken continuously to ensure a currency of skills and knowledge. Attendance at this event is worth 2CPD points.
