Methanex are a global gas company with an emphasis on being safe, reliable and high performance, particularly in terms of customer response and pursuit of market opportunity. For their new offices in Auckland, they were seeking a space that staff could feel proud of and that conveys the company commitment to its core values: Respect, Professionalism, Trust, Integrity.
As Lead Designer on this project while working for Stack Business Interiors, I was responsible for leading the full scope from clarifying the brief, through concept development, detailed design, and project delivery, working closely with the client and the support of the Stack technical and project management teams.
Seeking to draw staff out of their offices to collaborate, the imperative was to create common areas that are inviting and conducive to talking together and working together, A feature timber leaner was designed, around which staff could gather to share work and discuss openly. The café was also a key area, with the aim of creating a space for socialising, relaxing, and sharing the wonderful views from their new premises.
