  • Geyer was trusted with the design of the Port Jackson Partners offices, a business management consulting company located in Sydney, Australia.

    Founded in 1991, Port Jackson Partners (PJP) has grown to become one of Australia’s most well-respected strategy consulting firms. From the day that it opened, however, the company’s offices had been in Circular Quay’s AMP Centre, Sydney. So when the building was scheduled for demolition in 2018, the opportunity for a fresh office arose.

    Moving into Aurora Place – which was designed by noted Italian architect Renzo Piano in 1997 – PJP brought design heavyweight Geyer in to compose the new 1300sqm floor to suit the company’s contemporary needs.

    As many PJP employees regularly work offsite, the firm was looking to integrate some of the best elements of an agile-based workspace (ABW), while still remaining in an allocated desk setting.

    Breakout spaces provide more casual work settings, something PJP was missing in its old space. These, along with the social spaces, occupy the sides of the building that boast the best views across the Botanic Gardens and Sydney Harbour.

    Karo Ottomans and OTM Tables are scattered throughout these areas, providing occasional seating and tables.

    Perhaps what is most unique about PJP’s new fitout are the team rooms. These are flexible and adaptable spaces that cater to the privacy needs of PJP staff, featuring four desks and one long D-end bench, supplied by Schiavello, with TV and AV capabilities at the wall.

    With a natural, earthy palette and an array of workspaces, including a combination of small offices, an open workspace, big team collaboration areas, focus spaces and secure team rooms, PJP staff are now provided with a great option of work settings.

    A year after moving in, and PJP is making full use of the different areas.
