"Our business is fun, dynamic, vibrant and fast-paced, and we wanted our new environment to reflect that."
Platform Consulting Group was called in as project manager and lead contractor for the transformation, with Yellow 6 producing the design concept. My Food Bag's two functional requirements were allocated to different levels in the building administration workstation space on the third floor and the highly specialised development kitchen on the ground floor.
Yellow 6 Design director Suz Miller says all the existing fit-out ceiling panels, flooring, lighting trays was stripped out, leaving exposed, natural surfaces and services as the base for the new design. The concrete floor was then polished and a neutral colour scheme introduced as a backdrop.
"We then injected the My Food Bag brand colour palette into various areas Spring green, Summer red, Autumn orange and Winter purple," says Miller.
To facilitate collaboration within and across teams, there was a deliberate decision not to screen any of the administration workspaces even the co-CEO area is open to the wider environment.
However, each team does have its own meeting rooms for more private conversations and interactions, and colour has been injected into these too.
Central to this floor are staff social facilities including the kitchen, relaxation areas, children's play area and a pool table. Robinson says the pool table is more than just a social attraction.
