QMBA Commercial Award 2009
Yamaha Motor Australia required a fit-out that would reflect the technological and recreational features of their products. The polished finishes, bold colours and volumetric relationships were used to give the visual impression of movement and speed. Very specific technical requirements were also met to ensure that training functions were within an environment that reflected the corporate philosophy.
Working pods broke the office environment
The office environments were organised into working pods that could flexibly accommodate more or less staff as required and arranged to reflect the divisions with the Yamaha Group. A central spine with printing, copying and storage facilities rationalised the space and adjacent meeting areas created a variety of spaces. 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.
