With its overarching concept “workplace as home,” the new Sydney offices for global tech firm Dropbox engage the company’s employees and customers in new ways. At the heart of the space is a lounge/kitchen/dining area that is complemented by an adjacent courtyard that brings the outside in, much like a residential patio. The variety of workspaces includes open workstations and height-adjustable desks as well as smaller quiet rooms and booths. Signage and graphics employ natural, sometimes sculptural, materials. The space’s clean sightlines, thoughtful mix of furniture and finishes, and abundant use of plants coalesce to create a truly homey yet functional ambiance.
