Krost hosts IDEA gold medal panel at Melbourne showroom with architecture and design’s biggest and brightest stars 


Join us at Krost’s West Melbourne showroom on Thursday 27 July at 617 – 643 Spencer Street West Melbourne from 6pm to 9pm for the panel event Designing for Workplace Wellness, followed by a light meal, refreshments, and showroom tour. 

Elon Musk told employees via Twitter that they “should pretend to work somewhere else” if they felt it was “antiquated” to go to the office. 

Atlassian’s Scott Farqhaur, who, despite investing in a more than one billion dollar office tower looming over Sydney’s Central Station says that “you can work in your apartment, you can work in an RV travelling around Australia, or, if you want to come to work in an office, you can come to work in this incredible office that we’re building, and we see people make each of those choices every single day.” 

The choices people are making in our post-pandemic world regarding whether they work from home or work in an office speak to how each space makes them feel. The role of architects and designers has never been more important in designing for ‘wellness in the workplace’. 

But what is workplace wellness and how do we successfully design with it in mind? Has workplace wellness fatigue set in? And is neurodiversity the canary in the coal mine when it comes to workplace design? When you design for the neurodivergent, are you actually designing workplaces for everyone? We’ll ask these questions and more at our Designing for Workplace Wellness panel event held at Krost Showrooms 617 – 643 Spencer Street West Melbourne Thursday 27 July 6-9pm. Apply for tickets here.

It’s set to be a night of incredible conversation with A&D’s biggest names – Woods Bagot Senior Associate and IDEA jury member Sue Fenton, IDEA Gold medal winners Rob Backhouse, who is also the Chair of Hassell, Andrew Parr, founder and director of SJB Interiors, 30UNDER30 alumni and PTID Senior Interior Designer Emily Carter along with Krost’s own design manager Carly Krost.
