For us, everything starts with a site visit and face-to-face conversations with our clients, as we believe through this direct approach we could get to fully capture your organisation's expectation, requirement and space optimization, and our clients could fully understand our approach, experience and capacity. 

Then based on this client brief, we would start space planning and come up with a draft floor plan...

Activity based workplace (ABW) design and delivery.

We understand that ABW is not suitable for every organisation, and from design wise, it is certainly not one-size-fits-all. We will make recommendations from design and operation perspectives based on your organisation's operating model, culture and your end-users' daily working behaviors in the workplace. 

For us, ABW is more than just workstations and lockers in the workplace. Essentially, the design - as we call the name "activity", is based on end-users' daily activities. Then it involves other design factors, including the space ratio between communal area and workstation area, what to include in the communal area, or to be more specific what seating arrangement to be included in the ABW communal area... to name a few. And there is a technology piece in project consultation that we would recommend our client to consider as well, i.e. sign-in system for seat allocation, meeting space booking system, wireless presenters for display screen,... etc. 

Then there is the education piece in the ABW project that we would be more than happy to provide our service based on our extensive experience. Our goal is to get your staffs excited about the space, understand how to use the space (as it certainly is different from conventional workplace), and then ultimately love the ABW workplace. 

The benefit of ABW:

- Saving operating cost, we normally design 80 - 85% of workstation against your headcount.

- Flexible working 

- Increase opportunity to networking and team-building

- Promote performance based management

- Super modern office and tons of technology with wow factor.

0813 Studio provide high quality service to each and every project, whether large or small. We are your trusted advisers with abundant experience in the industry when it comes to commercial office projects. Give us a call today.

What's the smallest and the largest office 0813 Studio designed?


- The smallest office we designed was around 150sqm, which includes entry waiting area, a meeting room with operable walls, pantry, a manager's office and open workstations. The largest office we designed was a 3 floors office with inter-connecting staircase, 3,500sqm, with ABW requirement and green star submission. The largest office we project managed was a IT campus with 3 buildings (5 floors each) connected by a central cafe, 18,000sqm. 

So, in summary, size does NOT matter to us. You will get your expert in commercial office interior design and project management when you appoint us.

Do I need any approval or consent to start construction?

- This is depending on your scope of work. If it is only for painting and change of furnishings, then all you need is owner's consent, which could be valid even if it is a written email. Some organisations have higher requirement in paperwork and documentation, then in this case, a signed letter is sufficient from owner. 

If the scope if more than the above mentioned, then apart from owner's consent, you will need your authority's approval. The most common way is to engage a PCA to issue CDC. 

If there is any street front work, or your building is an heritage listing item, then a local council DA is required. 

Too complicated? Don't worry, we have managed more than 100 projects delivery. We will guide you through the process and requirement when you appoint us. Just give us a call. 

What commercial office experience do you have?

- We have designed more than 50 commercial offices across Australia and New Zealand, sizing from 150 to 3,500sqm, trade cost value from 100K to 7.5M. We are experts in the field with any sizes and any styles of your dream office. 

What do you mean by space planning?

- It's a term in interior design that we will draw a sketch either hand-drawn or from computer on a empty floor plan to show you the position and rough shapes of various areas and/or joinery items so that our client would under which area on the plan is for what functionality, here we also call it space mix. For example, a typical space plan we do for our office client includes a floor plan sketch as well as a table highlighting different areas, e.g. reception, breakout space, meeting room - 1PAX, 2 PAX, 3PAX...etc., open office area, manager's office...etc. 

What do you mean by full office detail design documentation?

- Our full office detail design documentation include drawings like: office floor plan, partition plan, internal elevations, finishes plan, flooring plan, reflected ceiling plan, joinery design details, and all necessary information for the purpose of tendering and full construction. The set of documentation is more than just certifier would require, it documents office design in full details so that the builder or contractor would be able to translate the design on site directly without any problem. We will also include a list of finishes details as well as list of furniture and fixtures.
