Workplace trends - Interview with MPA Designer Tara Kerse

The way we work is ever-evolving and our workplace trends are following suit. In the past, your standard office layout would consist of rows and rows of offices, cubicles, and desks. Now, with collaboration on the rise and technology linking people like never before, workplaces are designed to flow and encourage co-worker engagement. Open spaces and break-out areas are more regularly seen as the most desirable locations, not the CEO or Managing Director’s office. Tara Kerse, a Designer in the inhouse MPA design and construct team shared her insights on her favourite current workplace trends: What are your favourite design features currently in the Workplace? I’m such a big fan of adding biophilic elements to the workplace. This is a trend I don’t see disappearing anytime soon. Also, I love how designers are getting creative in the way they add plant life to a space – it's not just a pot plant in a tambour anymore. You’ll see lots of custom joinery pieces, furniture, walls, and ceiling elements all incorporating greenery. What trends do you predict for the future in the Workplace? Higher focus on sustainability for sure. And perhaps more drive for experience driven spaces, finding unique ways to develop overall happiness, wellness, and morale boosting for businesses. This could look like – meditation, yoga, games rooms or expresso and cocktail bars. What would your ideal workplace look like? There’s lots of inspiration coming from the residential realm which is something that really resonates with me – more and more, we’re wanting our workplace to be productive but also comfortable. My ideal workplace would be warm with lots of texture, filled with natural light and an abundance of plants! Favourite parts of the workplace you like to design? I really can’t choose! I love working on all areas, working with the client to ensure their personality is reflected and the design concept flows nicely through the whole space.

MPA takes home two

At this year’s Master Builders Association (MBA) Excellence in Construction Awards, MPA took away two awards for work on Havas and Canterbury League Club’s projects. Held at The Star Event Centre, the MPA team and clients celebrated a fantastic evening with the very best in commercial construction. Our Canterbury League Club project took home the Hospitality Building – Refurbishment ($10,000,001 - $30,000,000) award. The revamped gaming floor contains a new cocktail bar, VIP high rollers area, alfresco gaming space, back of house staff area, new indoor gaming space and new six-level lift. The finished space incorporates features including a custom joinery dome ceiling with crystal balls, standalone circular floor, cocktail bar fully wrapped in stone with a timber slat symmetrical ceiling and a timber ceiling over the alfresco gaming area. The VIP ‘high rollers’ area was a keyspace of the project, incorporating an infinity entry wall wrapped in handmade tiles, custom water feature with copper and timber structure with integrated waterspouts and the amenities which have a full-height stone wall. Additionally, MPA was awarded the Restoration/Adaptive Re-use of a Historic Building ($5,000,001 - $10,000,000) for our work on Havas’ heritage fitout. The multi-floor heritage building, previously a Bushell Tea factory, allowed Havas to bring all their agencies together under one roof. The unique space reflects Havas’ brand and culture. The exposed ceiling and timber features reveal the historic fabric and function of the building, with the space consisting of open plan workstations, collaborative areas, and meeting rooms. Havas embraced the heritage characteristics of the building by including the tea extractors and slides, resulting in a creative and open workspace. It was an honour to be recognised by the MBA for our achievements and the dedication that went into transforming these spaces. We would like to thank our clients, consultant teams and subcontractors who worked alongside us on these projects, and congratulations to all the remarkable winning projects at this year’s awards.
