Ebsworth’s interior adventure

Ebsworth’s interior adventure

IF A CHANGE is as good as a holiday, the team at Ebsworth & Ebsworth should be feeling rejuvenated and up to the staunchest of challenges as they settle into their new offices at 126 Phillip Street, Sydney.

Interiors strategy and design consultant Geyer developed the interior of the offices, to which the firm relocated early last month, with design leader Simone Oliver at the helm.

Incorporating elements such as shared offices, communal breakout and social areas and the widespread use of glass, the design followed Ebsworth & Ebsworth’s brief to create a sense of community and promote interaction amongst its team and clients.

Ebsworth & Ebsworth’s CEO Michael Ryan said the new building was chosen because of its “great architecture, clever technology and highly flexible floor plates”. He said Geyer had come up with a solution that maximised the best features of the building while forcing a re-think on how the team could better work together on superior client service.

“The look and feel of our offices is as much smart domestic as it is corporate.” Ryan said it was now a pleasure to come to work.

Clever design elements such as touch operated revolving louvre panelled walls and a long multifunctional reception desk enables the reception space to convert to a function space. Oliver said the design reinforced Ebsworth’s commitment to “maintaining a sense of transparency and connectivity” amongst its team and clients.

“We wanted to develop a solution which not only pushed the boundaries in terms of creativity but which also delivered on Ebsworth & Ebsworth’s functional needs and desire to create a comfortable and easy to use work space,” she said.

Geyer has also worked with Ebsworth & Ebsworth on its Melbourne office, which opened last year, and is currently working on the firm’s new Brisbane office.

In more premises news, international law firm Minter Ellison has signed a lease to remain at Rialto Towers for another four years, after relocating from Market Street in 1997. This will take its occupancy to the end of November, 2011. Chairman of the firm’s Premises Committee, Ian Davis, confirmed the deal, saying the firm was “very happy” with its location.

Since its move to Rialto, the firms had “cemented itself in the top tier”, he said.
