Washington H. Soul Pattinson Case Study
Facilitate were engaged to deliver the new HQ of Washington H. Soul Pattinson (WHSP) relocation project from their iconic Pitt Street office. After 112 years in their former office, WHSP moved to the new Barrack Place development at 151 Clarence Street – a sustainable, commercial office building incorporating the latest technology and targeting a 5-Star NABERS Energy rating.
Traditionally a pharmaceutical company, WHSP now invests in a large number of companies across a variety of industries. The Design team from Endrim developed the concept ‘Innovation builds from heritage’. This allowed the team to draw on the client’s rich heritage while evolving the workplace to promote innovation and celebrate WHSP’s ‘family like’ culture.
The highly detailed, 1,200 sqm fitout was completed over twelve weeks. The primary focus of the space was to retain the old site’s heritage features. The clay bricks on the ceilings and walls, reference the old sites structures while maintaining contemporary design. At the centre of the space is a multipurpose, breakout space that extends through large windows and arched doorways.
