2016 – AIA Newcastle Architecture Awards – Winner – SDA Workplace (Interior Architecture)
SDA has several values as a practice; we use materials that are accessible to all, we use space and materials efficiently to minimise waste, but most of all we value people. People are the most important material we work with. How does this translate into a workplace fit-out with a very low budget and tight timeframe? People and the way they work drove the design process.
Our workplace design encourages collaboration, movement and variety through multi-use spaces; meeting rooms that can change to offices when quiet is required, sit/stand desks adjust to suit the needs of the user, and fold up desks allow sketching and snacks throughout the day. Whilst mass-produced often bypasses the craft of the skilled artisan, we believe with a little thought and resourcefulness, mass produce can create fine products.
