Design: Dana Moussaoui
When a health industry not-for-profit began the hunt for a new headquarters, A1 Office was selected to bring this new beginning to life thanks to our quirky, yet practical, design concept.
A 1600m2 workspace designed around the human heart – the perfect organ to inspire connectivity, passion and purpose.
Employees are greeted at the entrance to the Melbourne headquarters by our custom-created heart-shaped 3D feature tapestry. The differing materials and textures of the heart were inspired by Australian indigenous culture – with Aboriginal people being a major client of the organisation and visitor to this building. The various patterns on the tapestry also represent the diversity among employees and stakeholders, who come from all different backgrounds. This acts as a way to build a sense of community and inspiration among users, both now and into the future.
