A collaborative workspace to inspire an evolving company culture
PEXA | Melbourne, Australia
PEXA (Property Exchange Australia) is Australia’s online property exchange network. It assists members – such as lawyers, conveyancers and financial institutions – to lodge documents with Land Registries and complete financial settlements electronically.
Currently the only business in Australia that offers this service, the business was established in 2010, is growing quickly and is a leading player in the disruption of property conveyancing services. Prior to moving into the placemaking 727 Collins St development in Melbourne, PEXA had been in inherited premises across three locations that didn’t align with the culture, brand or behaviours of the team.
The defining features of the new environment include the Central Café/Breakout Space and the Open/Collaborative Meeting zones. Pexa is a fun place to work, the team is highly collaborative and celebrating success is important to them. These spaces in the new workplace provide the first opportunity for the team to really come together and work towards common goals.
In areas with high activity (such as the reception, kitchen, meeting and collaborative spaces) bold colour blocking was used in the finishes and materials to contrast against the fairly neutral work areas. Colour was combined with natural timbers, patterned flooring and the greenery of the building’s central void to signify the vibrancy and creativity at the core of the PEXA brand. The blue and green tones used signify creativity, intelligence and vibrancy.
The culture is continuing to evolve as the business grows and the workplace is an important part of this evolution.
