ARM Architecture’s The Workplace Kane Built is a distinctive, functional environment that steers away from tradition, while retaining an air of professionalism and leadership.
A fundamental design driver was tailoring the environment to the company’s diverse needs and providing a ‘home’ for employees that reflects both the needs of end-users and the overall company vision.
We emphasised architectural elements by creating an interior landscape. A series of post-constructivist pavilions stretch the boundaries of materiality, structure and detailing, and anchor the open-plan layout. Strong industrial references tie in with local heritage motifs, and bold directional elements in floor and ceiling planes, such as the specialised neon lighting, reference the Richmond context of tram and train tracks.
The new workplace provides over 100 work-points, split across management offices, owned workstations, non-allocated flexi work-points, and drop-in shared spaces. The design prioritises acoustic integration and separation, and state-of-the-art technologies in lighting and audio-visual amenities.
