Maddocks, Melbourne, Australia

Client: Maddocks

Architect: Bates Smart

When law firm Maddocks moved their premises from the Melbourne CBD to Collins Square, the aspiration was to create a welcoming place of openness for Maddocks’ staff and visiting clients.

The new premises, spanning 6,000 m² over three floors, is a visually striking and bright space which considers both function and aesthetics.

Accessible via an inter-tenancy stair, the working floors feature a variety of work settings including a mix of offices, open workspaces, quiet rooms, informal breakout spaces and team tables to foster collaboration and efficiency.

The use of glass throughout the offices maximises daylight and supports the firm’s aspirations for an open yet connected work environment. A dedicated client floor features a boardroom which overlooks a unique Winter Garden, a space suited to both internal meetings and client functions.

It was integral that NDYLIGHT’s design considered both Maddocks’ functional requirements whilst also ensuring the end result achieved a premium aesthetic in line with Maddocks’ high-calibre service offering.
