Booz&Co. Level 53, 525 Collins St Melbourne Vic

role Interior Design value $1.17 million area 1,000m² completion date March 2008

peckvonhartel was appointed to design the new tenancy for Booz & Company at Level 53 of the Rialto Tower.  Booz & Company is a leading international global consulting firm that relocated to accommodate a substantial growth in staff numbers.

The design philosophy was inspired by the overall company objectives of excellence, quality, timelessness and forward thinking.  The layout is predominantly open plan and workstations are positioned to gain full access to natural light and to the views of Melbourne, afforded by the upper levels of the South Tower.

Individual offices are located internally with full height glass partitions to the open workstation area, to allow transparency and openness.  Workstations are custom designed and ergonomic task chairs were purposely selected that are 94% recyclable.  The reception and entry area employ sophisticated, timeless furniture and finishes.  A curved timber-ply wall links the board and meeting rooms with the reception area and adds visual interest and scale to a secondary passageway.
