The brief for AFL’s interiors team was to create a unique reception space, staff break out areas, floor landings, and lobbies within their corporate headquarters. In summary, they were to create a workspace that is considered a good place to be.
The relationship with the client was already well developed: the Residential & Commercial team having originally designed and delivered the offices themselves. The team therefore already understood the client brand, their drivers and the growth of ambition since delivery in 2010. The potential for an interiors refresh had been designed into the office, providing the flexibility for the company to change workspace configurations, develop their teams and allow for new advances in technology.
