Fitzpatrick + Partners

Complete headquarters redesign, creating a flexible workspace for collaboration and communication

When the rapidly expanding team at architects Fitzpatrick+Partners needed a larger workspace, they set about designing a brand new headquarters based at Harry Seidler’s iconic 9 Castlereagh Street office tower. An environment that closely reflects the character and work methodologies of the company, the new office is built around the need for flexibility and change, providing space for collaboration and communication.

Fitzpatrick+Partners' needs for their workspace were relatively simple - The primary space of the 700sqm office is open-edged with workshops, corners for discussion, quiet spaces for privacy, and flexible spaces for ceremony...

"We tested several chair types, but in reality, the HAG Capisco was the only choice – from the first look to the first trial. "
James Fitzpatrick
Partner, Fitzpatrick+Partners

Fitzpatrick+Partners chose two forms of seating from the Flokk portfolio to help them address their collaborative and flexibility needs. Workstations throughout the office are equipped with HÅG Capisco 8106 chairs. Specified with a higher gas lift and paired with foot rests, the HÅG Capisco was the perfect fit for their new higher workstations, designed to aid desk to desk visits and team communication. The freedom of movement granted by the HÅG Capisco was also a positive for these largely collaborative areas.

The studio has a palette predominantly of timber and white surfaces. The form of the HÅG Capisco chair, its height in the workplace, and the choice of a bright blue fabric (Camira Xtreme), have instantly highlighted these chairs as core design elements within the space.

Additional seating came in the form of the Offecct Carry On stools. These constantly move around the studio, from their presentation spaces to their more recreational areas, adding another inherent layer of flexibility to the environments.
