Our biggest challenge in WA is our planning
system. Each small lo cal co u ncil has different
pla nning laws – so me with outdated policies
that inhibit good development. With Perth’s
population do ubling over the nex t 30 years,
we need a planning system that can help
de nsity happen in a smar ter way.
Paul Blackburne, managing
direc tor of Blackburne.
Positioned in a quiet pocket of the cultural
precinct of Perth, and within walking distance of
the CBD and Northbridge, Blackburne’s Oracle
Apartments offer the ultimate urban lifestyle.
“ S u ccessful e nviro n men ts, especially
agile o n es, do n ot len d themselves to
a ‘o n e-size-fits-all ’ appro ach, especially
for Activity-Based Working (ABW). To
achieve the tru e poten tial of ABW, the
approach mu st be fi nely tu ned to the
busin ess and the people within it.
A recen t example of a co nsidered
approach to ABW is King & Wood Malleso ns
in Perth – the space suppo rts the company’s
strategic direc tio n an d desired culture.
The ability to o rchestrate privacy an d
confidentiality, and to coordinate noise
an d distraction were critical facto rs in the
development of the workplace strategy by
Geyer. The workplace allows fo r perso nalisation
of space, shared access to nat u ral light, eff ective
an d accessible sto rage, a nd the integration of
mobile wo rking techn ology.”
Stirling Fletcher, Pe rth re giona l le ade r at Geye r.
Popularity for Activity-Based
Working (ABW) is on the rise, as
seen here at King & Wood Mallesons.
