Hot Black Interiors has created a new office design for financial firm HESTA located in Melbourne, Australia.
HESTA is Australia’s largest super fund dedicated to the health and community services industry. The organisation was seeking an interior that reflected its premium location in Melbourne’s CBD while also highlighting its corporate brand identity. Equally importantly, HESTA wanted the interior to enable more effective collaboration among its eight departments.
Hot Black Interiors undertook a workplace analysis by conducting a series of surveys to gain a better understanding of each department’s requirements. This helped develop a design concept that perfectly captured their needs. Overall, Hot Black wanted to create a modern, open plan office space which captures outdoor views, lighting and promotes a collaborative workplace.
The resulting 1500 sq/m workspace features organic, fluid forms and finishes that enable a sense of ownership of the space for everyone. There are open spaces, breakout areas and, in keeping with HESTA’s commitment to the environment, only environmentally friendly materials were used.
