North Ryde, New South Wales
Ericsson’s head office in Stockholm, Sweden, commissioned Bates Smart to design their offices in Sydney and Melbourne. The North Ryde site required a fitout occupying two floors based on the Ericsson corporate identity implemented in their offices worldwide. The key objectives were to achieve flexibility within the workspace and encourage staff interaction. A stair with associated breakout and coffee points on both floors connects the two levels. Workstations imported from Sweden are highly flexible and adaptable and easily moved for personal preference or to allow new team groupings. A staff breakout area provides a social hub away from the office area with a café and entertainment facilities. The reception and waiting areas allow visual connectivity through to the workspaces.
