Our philosophy


How we do it


"MPA's support and dedication was outstanding. The team repeatedly demonstrated their willingness to go out of their way to ensure they delivered the outcome we were looking for. They were very helpful in offering advice and options in the design process, and found ways for us to achieve our desired outcome while keeping within our budget. The support on site was a stand-out point for MPA. They did a great job managing contractors and ensuring all works were completed to a high standard. "

Habitat House - 64 Kippax

MPA was engaged by April Group to re-position their building as a premium offering, combining lifestyle and amenities. The demand for commercial properties on the fringe of Sydney’s CBD has surged, as suburbs such as Surry Hills, Redfern and Chippendale become more desirable. Habitat House is perfectly positioned in Surry Hills and provides high-end facilities for like minded tenants. [video width="720" height="480" mp4="" poster=""][/video]   The Design & Construct project was completed across eight commercial levels, two basements including an end of trip facility, and a conversion of the vacant roof into a vibrant rooftop garden. Designed by architects The World Is Round, the innovative space focuses on collaboration and wellness. The end of trip facility also encourages tenants to embrace healthy living and sustainable habits. Tenants can also enjoy the rooftop terrace, which provides a space for socialising and relaxation. The lobby area features a curved wall made from glass bricks and charred timber wall paneling, adding an edginess which feels right at home in the chic city fringe suburb. In preparation for the refurbishment to the 6,000m2 base building, all fitouts and infrastructure were completely stripped. Heavy remediation to façade glazing and spandrels were undertaken across the eleven levels. With substantial works being carried out on the roof, a large crane was positioned in the street to carry up a smaller crane. The smaller crane was then situated on the rooftop for the duration of construction to move around the heavyweight rooftop materials. Alongside the base build upgrade, MPA was also engaged to undertake integrated fitouts of various floors on behalf of clients including Guzman Y Gomez (792m2), Blackmores (2,200m2) and Audinate (700m2). Set to become Surry Hills’ leading commercial space, the fully repositioned 1960’s office building is drenched in natural light with a creative and modern atmosphere.  

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.
