peckvonhartel was engaged by Rackspace, a company which specialises in cloud computing, to provide interior design services for their new workplace in Sydney. Known as the home of “Fanatical Support”, the Rackspace Sydney office provides customer support services and is home to a young, energetic and highly motivated workforce. A key driver for the design was to provide a fun, engaging and lively work environment for staff as well as to present a warm, welcoming and professional image for clients.

After extensive client consultation and stakeholder engagement meetings a design was developed which provided for an open, transparent and accessible work environment which represented the inclusive culture of Rackspace for both staff and clients. Bold materials, colours, patterns, graphics and textures were selected to create a visually engaging work environment to reflect the personality of the staff while the planning of the predominately open plan workplace promotes openness, connectivity and transparency.
