Project summary

Warren and Mahoney’s new Melbourne Studio celebrates its authentic anchoring within Wurundjeri Country while acknowledging its New Zealand Aotearoa heritage. Situated within the newly renovated Queen & Collins precinct, it identifies the strong synergies and coming together of both cultures, counterposing an iconic neo-gothic backdrop. This cultural intersection revealed an opportunity to co-design a unique contemporary workplace that brings together shared values around design excellence, innovation, people and culture. The workplace design strategy, led by our inhouse specialists, directly responds to our people’s desire for a studio that provides a range of experiences, from vibrant to introspective. Spaces incorporate intelligent technology that enables seamless connection with clients and collaborators whether small or large; and with teams within Warren and Mahoney’s “One Studio’ network of offices; any of whom could be located remotely in the post-pandemic age.

Victorian Jury Presentation

Warren and Mahoney’s new Melbourne Studio celebrates diversity in every dimension to truly reflect the communities we design for, and the cultures, landscapes and Country that inspires us. It becomes a live framework that embodies our DNA of designing at the intersection of culture, sustainability and innovation to encourage and facilitate collaboration and co-design processes that result in more meaningful and fundamentally better project outcomes. The alignment of contemporary design and work practices with cultural expression provides a welcoming and cutting edge studio with our work, values and Country on display.
