Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) Level 24, 2 Lonsdale Street, Melbourne VIC

role Interior Design value $600,000 completed date October 2004

The Department of Education, Science and Training is broken up into three areas, The Transitions Branch, The Training Branch and The Indigenous Education Branch, all of which aim to promote learning and provide educational opportunities for Australians. The brief required that these branches unite as one within the fitout.

peckvonhartel responded to this challenge by providing a contemporary interior workspace which clearly illustrated the Department's ideals and objectives. A graphic design team recommended by peckvonhartel worked closely with the client and external indigenous artists to create a colourful and cohesive graphic response that unifies the tenancy.

In addition to graphics, the design provides feature lighting, coloured lightboxes and a selection of inexpensive furniture to create a forward thinking and modern environment.
