Baker & McKenzie
Melbourne

Baker & McKenzie’s legal fitout is located at 181 William Street, part of Bates Smart’s CBW development. Extensive user group consultation was undertaken to resolve Baker & McKenzie’s needs and aspirations, resulting in a brief for an innovative legal fitout that will reinvigorate their organisational culture that is moving towards an increasing team focus.

The fitout features a component of shared offices, democratic planning that results in no single individual owning the window, exciting shared staff spaces connected by a central communal stair and dynamic client spaces that align with Baker & McKenzie’s brand.

The concept for the look and feel of the client areas and workspace aligns with Baker & McKenzie’s unique balance of global reach balanced with local focus. Materials and spatial treatments respond to these key themes, with ‘global’ interpreted by refined, machined, reflective and high tech elements and ‘local’ interpreted by crafted, natural, textured and permeable elements. The outcome will be a timeless, welcoming, grounded space with an innovative twist - a reflection of Baker & McKenzie’s brand and culture.
