TNS was a relocation project which was primarily to be adaptive re-use of existing elements within a typical office building in North Sydney. The budget was lean, and the brief required us to think outside the box to deliver a high-impact design that would rival the sister media agencies within the same company group.
The forward-thinking client wanted an Activity Based Workplace which offered a variety of open and closed spaces for their staff to work in. To delver this, we worked with a number of existing meeting rooms and mixed them with new quiet booths, open plan workstations, a large breakout and a variety of alternate work settings.
The humble milk-crate was the main design element which formed the foundations for much of the joinery in the workplace including the reception wall, quiet booths, banquette window seating and light features. We repeated the cube throughout the design with 2D and 3D elements as the cube was a pivotal form to the TNS branding.
“We engaged The Bold Collective to work on our Sydney project as we were attracted to their creativity and willingness to solve problems. They were enthusiastic and engaging when it came to communicating with the internal team and always professional. The project was the first Activity Based Workplace project for WPP and so successful TNS have engaged the Bold team to work on their Melbourne and Perth projects. Their experience in interpreting relevant workplace settings plays a significant role in an ABW project. They work across interstate projects seamlessly and provide a suitable level of expertise regardless of the project scale.Their flexibility in working to our specific needs, sometimes with lean budgets, has been a real asset. I would have no hesitation recommending The Bold Collective for future projects”
