DESIGNING SUSTAINABILITY INTO THE WORKPLACEIn terms of designing sustainability in the workplace, an important initial consideration was daylight. Our design planning aimed to maximize the infusion of natural sunlight into the office for the benefit of the many living plants (no artificial plants were used as part of our biophilic inspired design) that aims to emphasize the symbiotic interaction between people and the natural world. Since daylight is also pretty good for humans too, we placed key event and community spaces in areas with good views. Wherever possible, furniture was re-cycled, and new joinery items were specially designed and built to be easily re-used in the event of future relocation. Aurecon’s dedication to sustainability is further demonstrated by this forward-thinking strategy. Staff is educated and sustainability is promoted with thoughtful branding visuals.
URBAN FARM ELEMENT
A real-life urban farm is a key design element that has been cleverly integrated into the reception area. The urban farm project is a local Client team-inspired & run initiative which grows edibles and vegetables organically using energy-efficient technologies. This not only creates a talking point for clients and staff but serves as a metaphor for Aurecon’s quest to “bring ideas to life and, their firm undying commitment to sustainability.
Aurecon’s office reflects their commitment to sustainability, innovation and wellbeing.
