FDC has recently completed the fitout of ‘The Porter’, located in the foyer at 1 O’Connell Street, Sydney.
The 800sqm project was completed within 11 weeks.
The Porter – a CBD pit stop between office and meetings – is the brainchild of Haworth and reflects the latest trend in the creative use of building space and business usage. This accommodation provides informal meeting settings and private meeting rooms for tenants and members, with monthly memberships available for tenants facilitating discounted venue hire. The Porter fosters interaction and aims to connect a dynamic professional network through the formation of a new vertical community. In addition, the space provides a location outside of traditional offices for nomadic workers to meet and undertake creative activities.
With an exclusive lounge atmosphere, some unique elements of the fitout include a flexible workshop area, event spaces, meeting rooms, casual seating, and a central “chalet” with fireplace in which to collaborate and network.
FDC worked in collaboration with Haworth, Gensler, NDY, Defire and Philips Dynalite to deliver the premium meeting space. FDC Technologies was also engaged with a D+C scope.
