QMBA Commercial Award 2009
Yamaha Motor Australia required a fitout that would reflect the technological and recreational aspects of their products. This was expressed throughout the fitout from the selection of polished finishes and strong colours to the use of spatial volume and planar relationships to give the visual impression of movement and speed. Very specific technical requirements were also met to ensure that training functions were met within an environment that reflected the corporate philosophy.
The office environments were managed within working pods, arranged to allow flexible accommodation of more or less staff in each working pod. The pods were organized to reflect the divisions with the Yamaha Group. A central spine of printing, copying and storage facilities rationalized the space and a variety of meeting areas allowed for more formal and informal discussion. Circulation paths were arranged to allow for easy access to work areas. Particular care was taken to provide high quality staff facilities and to consider the comfort of the working environment.
Inspired by Yamaha’s long term commitment to the site, products were chosen that provided good value for money, longevity, and ease of maintenance over the life span of the fitout. High efficiency lighting, combined with good daylighting, minimizes electrical consumption.
