Movet is a company that literally originated in a garage. Today, the Movet brand is eponymous with outstanding competence in the field of conveyor belt technology. Because the capacity of the company’s rather makeshift headquarters had finally been reached, Studio Alexander Fehre was commissioned to design a new and more representative office space with an adjoining warehouse. The solution is a clever combination of different areas, so as to accommodate the diverse range of requirements in a limited space while retaining a spacious feel. The result is the ‘Movet Workshop’, which forms the epicentre of the space and functions as conference room, office kitchen and showroom in one. Contained behind an airy metal mesh façade, customers and visitors are welcomed here in the very heart of the office and thus immediately integrated into daily business. The new open-plan office structure communicates engagement, transparency and a marked team spirit – especially to the people working there.

How a dark, century-old wool store in Sydney’s historic wharf district has been transformed into a sleek and playful workspace for one of Australia’s fastest growing Gen Y virtual data companies.
Take a fast growing financial data company, 50+ young staff working long hours under intense pressure, a global client base, kilometres of cabling and technological infrastructure, and an old building, and you have one very challenging commercial fit-out project.
