South 32 Worsley Alumina – Facility 141 Creative Hub
Project Category: Office Fitout
Builder: Devlyn Constructions
Completion Date: 2018
Following the successful completion of the Facility 141 Office Fitout, Merge was approached to transform an adjoining wing of the administration building. The design brief was to create a casual, relaxed, fun collaborative space to encourage creativity and staff interaction.
The 500m² office space includes a large café-style kitchenette and staff breakout area, numerous casual meeting zones, a large central collaboration hub and open-plan office. Furniture such as bar tables and pod-style bench seating allow for more relaxed meeting options and oversized sliding whiteboard walls encourage staff creativity.
A vibrant interior palette injects a sense of fun with loads of colour and pattern used throughout. Acoustics were addressed with feature wall panelling, timber slatted screens and bulkheads. An industrial style was enhanced by removing the existing ceiling tiles and exposing the services and structural elements overhead.
