OzChild’s vision for their two major hubs in Frankston and Dandenong was to provide a child-friendly workspace. The new premises should not only make children and families feel welcome and comfortable but needs to simultaneously foster an attractive, productive and happy environment for workers. The organisation is therefore using its new space as an opportunity to give back to its employees through an environment that supports the nature of their work. It will also be giving back to the visitors by providing them with the tools they need for an easier process.
Given the importance of its work, OzChild sees its staff and clients’ happiness as fundamental to its operation. BRM has therefore started creating guidelines for the blueprint of OzChild’s unique take on this very meaningful industry. Colour and acoustic control were two important features of the design. Utilising Planex products throughout the design enabled colour matching to the desired colour palette. The Linea acoustic storage system helps to absorb sound in the workplace and the S Series lateral drawer units and individual Virtu pedestal units provided secure personal/office storage throughout the fit-out.
