The Woods Bagot architecture has designed the Oceania Headquarters for Fujitsu in Sydney, Australia with a
total surface of 9000 square meters spread over five floors that were
created to focus on the employees and customers.
The design wants to integrate with the building and thus Woods Bagot
worked closely with the Fujitsu employees to bring together the base
lobby and from there continue into the work areas on the upper levels.A central staircase is what links the five floors and it leads to the
kitchen, social areas or work environments. There aren’t any allocated
desks since an agile workspace concept was preferred to encourage the
staff to vary in their work practices since a new setting might bring
new ideas with it.
There are sit-to-stand work spots on each floor and interactive zones
as well. The Japanese heritage of the firm is references through
several origami motifs and the layering of timber, while the oak timber
cladding in the meeting rooms and the handmade furniture bring an
organic element to the aesthetic.
