ACS Melbourne wanted to expand its membership base to include a new wave of tech-savvy entrepreneurs, as well as bring inhouse its learning workshops and provide a larger event space for current members and visitors. WMK was engaged to extend the stylish, collaborative and atmospheric workspace created in Sydney to the new 2040m2 Docklands Melbourne home.
WMK utilised the same design aesthetic and principles that guided the Sydney office fit out but flipped the floor plate layout to reduce the back of house area and extend the collaborative spaces for Melbourne. Elegant timber paneling was installed to highlight the intuitive walkway from the reception to front of house. Visitors are greeted with cutting edge interactive technology to deliver a sensory and engaging experience. The multifunctional communal spaces incorporate reused furniture and interactive play and creative elements provide a diverse range of entertaining, meeting and networking options.
ACS has been able to reposition itself in the Melbourne market as a significant technology player and has substantially increased its membership base by attracting a younger demographic. ACS is able to seamlessly connect their offices to deliver workshops nationally and the sophisticated event space now delivers a variety of inhouse and external events.
