    Woods Bagot, in conjunction with Living Edge, delivers Challenger’s new integrated workplace at 5 Martin Place, Sydney.

    Shape Challenger 5 MP 029

    Project - 07.06.2016

    Built in 1916, the strong architectural language of the Commonwealth Bank's iconic ‘money box’ building provided a strong foundation that inspired the design for Challenger’s new workplace. Creating 9,000sqm of workspace across four levels, the design by Woods Bagot was focused on bringing people together.  

    Strategic in both concept and design, the design fosters alignment to grow the capability of the organisation in line with business objectives. Looking back in order to create a forward-thinking workplace, work floors comprise individual and project based work stations, semi-open meeting pods and small, bookable private meeting rooms.

    Upon entry, clients and visitors are introduced to the space via the custom concierge desk at reception featuring seamless technological integration. Situated on Level 2, reception blurs into a town hall-style breakout zone for internal forums, social gatherings and presentations. Positioned adjacent to the café, commercial-grade kitchen and living green wall, the town hall area has provided a dynamic zone that functions at the heart of information exchange.

    Throughout the fit-out, the finishes scheme develops the heritage-inspired palette using natural stones and textured glazing. Ceramic wall and floor tiles alongside bronze trim and fluted glass bricks reference the past, while contemporary furniture enables modern functionality, detailed considerately with the heritage overlay.

    Considering workplace efficiency and employee wellbeing, Challenger’s new workplace delicately balances collaboration and the requirement for privacy, facilitating a productive environment that builds engagement, and enables connectivity within the Challenger community.
