Requiring additional space, this time Trade Me engaged HMOA to work with them to refresh an existing area over three floors of the heritage-listed John Chambers Building. A distinctive, colourful workplace has been created with a new entry that allows Trade Me staff to come and go between 2 and 3 Market Lane.
The second level has been replanned to create a secure public entry and lobby, and the existing conference area relocated into the central core of the building. Glazed partition walls separate this social area, and the staff cafeteria, from the quiet workspaces.
This project saw strong collaboration between architect and client. Key colours have been pulled from the mural to create a vibrant palette, also inspired by Trade Me's furniture selection; an eclectic mix of seating options purchased by Trade Me on Trade Me!
