Thoughtspace took two geographically separate BBC Worldwide offices and created a dynamic 2000 square metre workplace in Macquarie Park. Eden Park Drive media precinct was the perfect fit for the evolving global media organisation.
BBC Worldwide’s new headquarters boasts a large expanse of office-free open plan environment peppered with a variety of working lounges and alternative activity-based working areas. The organisation believed that there needed to be a element of fun introduced into the typical workplace, in addition to the functional aspects of commercial interior design. Thoughtspace worked closely with the marketing and communications team to develop a design and workplace strategy for the new facility. These brainstorming sessions resulted in the primary design driver being a celebration of the BBC Worldwide global brands.
The outcome includes impressive front of house facilities, state of the art media and AV facilities, quirky themed meeting rooms, numerous creative work and meeting hubs and a dynamic workplace environment capable of supporting the organisation’s future growth strategies. In addition, significant environmental graphic backdrops brought these brands to life and successfully represent BBC Worldwides identity as a prominent and dynamic media company.
Drainage is often the forgotten workhorse of the building and design function. Yet drainage maintains a simple albeit vital purpose.
