Situated in their own asset, real estate company, Abacus Property Group, required a total re-design and relocation of its Sydney head office. The main aim being to reflect their new identity, but secondly to showcase how their own A-grade office building can provide a premium workplace experience.

With a challenging U-shaped floorplate, a triangular, 45-degree planning concept was devised to maximise floorplate openness, and biophilic screening has been used to delineate areas. Creating community, connection is enhanced as staff now have visual sightlines across all areas.


The floorplan encompasses two distinct spaces, one side for open plan working, the other for meetings, events and gatherings. These are unified by two overhead curved ceiling installations that define spaces below, act as a wayfinding device and also become an interior feature.

Curved corners are employed within the design and on furnishings and material and colour palettes are authentic, sustainable and textural. The design is a polished aesthetic that is warm and inviting.

A Town Hall meeting area was vital and this, with other meeting spaces, is adaptable and flexible as furniture and screening can be re-configured to suit. Now staff have opportunities to connect, clients can mix, best practice working is showcased and culture is enhanced.
