Workplace, Interiors, Fitout
2018 – AIA Newcastle Architecture Awards – Commendation – MJH Group Workplace (Interior Architecture)
Located within a new mixed-use development in Honeysuckle, MJH Group’s new workplace overlooks Newcastle Harbour which is representative of the suburb itself: a picturesque renewal of a once derelict industrial zone.
As the waterfront characterises the suburb, the office design and fit-out is representative of the core values and business philosophies held by MJH Group: Australia’s second largest project home builder in Australia. Ultimately, this was to be a space for builders; fitted with practical, efficient and logical features that simultaneously signify humility whilst eliciting a sense of pride in its users.
Functionally, the office floors’ thoughtful design facilitates the integration of various corporate functions. As a result, the space allows for privacy, separation and collaboration, all without compromising the open-plan feel that was desired.
The relocation and splitting of MJH Group’s corporate functions from its more traditional operational functions promoted improvements in MJH’s operation. Some of these spaces had not been considered at briefing but were seen as essential elements upon completion; allowing the business to culturally grow into a stand-alone entity, supporting the group functions Australia wide
