The Forsyth Barr workplace project is located at the Lumley Centre in Auckland and houses 80 staff over one floor of this existing tower development.

Warren and Mahoney worked closely with the client to develop a workplace that met the aspirations for a collaborative environment and also a distinctive client experience. The project utilises technology and spatial arrangements, which promote flexible and adaptable ways of working. With the careful planning of the workplace and social spaces the design underpins a “one office” culture.

The project provides Forsyth Barr with a flexible client meeting room suite, which caters for presentation and interaction with visitors to the interior. Warren and Mahoney has reinforced the importance of circulation and break-out spaces by linking these with the functional rooms.

The concept implemented maximises the Waitemata Harbour views and curates backdrops for artwork and display. In essence the materials selected and the language of detailing respond to the desire for a timeless and high quality interior. This material and colour palette not only reflects the Forsyth Barr brand, but connects to the wider context of the adjacent harbour.
