SLATER+GORDON
FLAGSHIP OFFICE IN BRISBANE UNVEILED

Slater+Gordon - flagship office in Brisbane unveiled

WMK has delivered a sleek and detailed design for Slater+Gordon’s latest flagship office on Ann Street in Brisbane.

Slater+Gordon now enjoy a new, expansive 3,500m2 workspace, spanning three levels – right in the heart of Brisbane.

The new workspace is a versatile environment that embraces an agile working environment. With a variety of spaces on offer for meetings and collaborative work, quiet spaces for private desk work, a large boardroom, a secure reception, and a vibrant kitchen breakout area for staff, WMK has created a flexible and functional environment.

This new workspace is one of several offices WMK completed for Slater+Gordon around Australia.

WMK has created a successful design standard, resulting in highly workable interiors for this successful law firm.

TO PRESENT AT GREEN CITIES

John Andreas to present at Green Cities

WMK Architecture Director John Andreas will speak at the Green Cities Conference in March.

Co-hosted annually by the Green Building Council and the Property Council, Green Cities is a celebration of disruptive ideas and is Australia’s leading sustainability conference for the built environment.

John will speak on day two at ‘design disturbance’ – a dynamic panel session which will showcase seven disruptive ideas with regard to sustainable design and truly great buildings.

As the design architect on the ground-breaking and innovative Northern Beaches Christian School project, John will speak about ‘the architecture of spaces: meeting the vision for a new learning model’.

The project delivered a unique, interactive indoor-outdoor learning environment designed for multiple learning modes and non-hierarchical interaction – all beneath a spectacular canopy that generates energy, harvests rainwater, and cools the spaces below.

Green Cities will be held in Sydney 22-24 March.

THE EPHEMERAL CITY
THE CUTAWAY

The Ephemeral City

French artist Olivier Grossetete has been in Sydney overseeing workshops and the creation of a mini-city known as The Ephemeral City within ‘The Cutaway’ at Barangaroo Reserve as part of the Sydney Festival.

It’s a community participation event. The collection of towers and turrets, all made from cardboard and sticky tape, are built by the people of Sydney. A flying fox runs through the space, allowing the public to view the cardboard city from above.

Several members of the WMK team visited The Ephemeral City to experience it first-hand.

“It’s fantastic to see a project we delivered being used and embraced like this by fellow Sydney-siders,” said WMK Interior Designer, Loretta Nagy.

The team at WMK was proud to work with Lendlease and the Barangaroo Delivery Authority as the architectural design consultant for The Cutaway at Barangaroo.

The 19-metre high towers were demolished on site on Australia Day.
