Designed by Warren and Mahoney
From the architects:
If, increasingly, people can from work anywhere, what is going to make them want to show up every day and perform at their best?
With this in mind, Warren and Mahoney and ANZ took a human-centred design approach to ANZ Raranga and rolled out new furniture and spaces to meet the workforce’s specific requirements.
Implementing this ‘furniture-based fit-out’ strategy, which allowed staff to create spaces to suit their needs, putting workplace wellbeing at the heart of the design.
ANZ Raranga is a new five-and-a-half level workplace for contact centre and regional banking staff. The workplace design is based on three key principles: Connection, Community and Flexibility.
The concept for ANZ Raranga formed around a question asked in the original brief – “What is the ideal workplace of 2025?”.
With the pace of change in technology and rapid adoption of mobile and flexible working, we know that it will be different.
What is harder to define is what exactly this difference will be.
Acknowledging this uncertainty, we reframed the question and asked instead, “What will attract people to come to work in 2025?”
