Inspired by wood, the designer decided to follow with a theme throughout the centre and incorporated many Australian, naturally sourced materials and animal-themed artworks to adorn the space.
While walking through each of the centres fully furnished workspaces, it was immediately apparent that every room had a unique shape, and wasn’t the traditional square or rectangle shape–a delightfully subtle touch.
Each external room has either harbour views or views of the bustling city that lays beneath. The glass element to every office allows for an abundance of natural light, even surprisingly within the internal offices.
“Our clients were after more space – we listened.”
The Executive Centre made small modern additions around the centre, to make using their facilities even easier. They now have a mobile phone app which clients can use as their ‘key-card’ to get into their offices.
Though small, this addition makes a world of a difference, especially in a time where our phones often are not far from our fingertips. In addition to their new key-card concept, The Executive Centre have created a mobile phone app, The Executive Centre App that acts as an online booking system where members can check the availability of or book a meeting room at any of TEC’s locations worldwide.
Inspired by the study that suggested that standing during meetings can cut meeting times by 25%, the Executive Centre’s Barangaroo’s location has a stand-up meeting room, where members can have informal meetings standing up rather than sitting down.
Undeniably, the workspace-as-a-service industry is evolving in APAC and workspace operators are finding new ways through which they can remain competitive and disruptive in the market.
