The new office fit-out for Hames Sharley in Collins Street, Melbourne, epitomizes the firm’s commitment to creating spaces that foster creativity and functionality. Hames Sharley, renowned as a leading multi-disciplinary design firm, has always been at the forefront of leveraging design to craft environments that bolster productivity and well-being. This ethos is distinctly evident in their recently relocated Melbourne studio.
Nestled in the vibrant heart of Collins Street, the new office space is more than just a physical location; it manifests Hames Sharley’s philosophy. It embodies their approach to identifying opportunities and asking the right questions to contextualize their projects. The design of the office was driven by specific criteria that focused on aesthetics, functionality, and sustainability. These elements are harmoniously blended to create a workspace that is not only visually appealing but also conducive to the diverse needs of the team.
Planex, known for its innovative and customizable xLocker2 storage system, was a natural choice for Hames Sharley. The lockers, featuring the unique Miimii perforation, are not just functional elements; they are art pieces that contribute to the studio’s dynamic and inspiring atmosphere. The Miimii perforation, designed by Lucy Simpson a First Nations designer, adds a layer of cultural and aesthetic depth, reflecting Hames Sharley’s commitment to design excellence.
The new office fit-out for Hames Sharley in Melbourne is a testament to their design philosophy. It’s a space that transcends traditional office norms, offering an environment where creativity, collaboration, and sustainability merge. With the strategic input of talents like Sonja Duric and her design team with Planex, Hames Sharley’s new studio is a beacon of innovative design and a model for future workplaces.
