Gadens, Melbourne, Australia

Client: Gadens

Architect: Bates Smart

The new workplace design for legal firm Gadens provides a modern and innovative 2.5 level, 5,000 m² fitout that explores a number of key objectives: enhancing collaboration, driving high performance, designing for longevity and aligning to the values of the Gadens brand.

NDYLIGHT collaborated with Bates Smart to design a workspace which provided a welcoming environment for the Gadens team and clients alike. Exploring themes of ‘clean, simple and elegant’, this collaborative effort produced one of the key design features – the Barrisol ceiling, which was installed across client and office floors to bring a sense of splendour and connectivity to the spaces. The large expanse of this feature lighting is one of the biggest total areas of Barrisol installed within a single office space in Melbourne.

With the relocation of their office to a central CBD location improving accessibility for both the Gadens team and their clients, the fitout project delivers a real difference in the working environment available to Gadens and highlights a significant step towards a flexible and collaborative future for this sophisticated Melbourne law firm.
