Having decided to relocate to new premises, Diageo seized this project as an opportunity for a fresh start. Not just in the appearance of the office but also in the way that staff interact with the office and each other.
Diageo is the world’s leading premium drinks business with an outstanding collection of alcohol brands across spirits, beer and wine. These brands include Johnnie Walker, Smirnoff, Baileys, Guinness, and Bundaberg Rum.
With a business intrinsically proud of its brands, and global corporate guidelines to meet, the challenge for interior designer Lisa Podbereski was to integrate the brand image into a vibrant and interactive office space, but also ensuring the operational and cultural goals for the new workplace were achieved.
It was always our intention to ensure that staff felt comfortable, energised and valued; whilst working in a space which allowed them to connect with the latest technology. We can happily say that we have achieved our goal”
Anthony Mortimer, National Operations Manager, Diageo
Any visitor to Diageo Sydney offices will remark on the Bar and its WOW factor. This comfortable, inclusive and functional space is the show piece of the Sydney office and a source of much pride. With stunning harbour views, the facility is big enough for large company functions, yet warm and inviting for small bump meetings. A variety of seating options maintain a welcoming ambience.
