O-I Asia Pacific
O-I came to Breathe looking for a smooth transition between their former premises of close to two decades to their new home in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD. The change in office location presented a new opportunity to recalibrate the culture and operation of O-I, with Breathe participating in staff engagement and consultation throughout the initial design stages.
The brief called for a work environment that was to be inspiring, designed in a way to facilitate knowledge transfer between staff and to maintain a comfortable level of productiveness while encouraging collaboration. The space is split across two floor plates, totalling 2,000sqm, housing over 200 staff across the two spaces. Each floor as distinct working space as well as individual phone booths, varied meeting room sizes, breakout areas for staff and executive lounges for the leadership team. Breathe were asked to retain much of the existing furniture as well as undertake extensive FF&E selection to tie the spaces together. Breathe were engaged in February 2018, on site April 2018 and delivered the finished outcome in July 2018.
