Coming home to the creative incubator

April 10, 2024
In Melbourne’s Fed Square, the ACMI team is now working under one roof in a vibrant new space, designed by WAM, home to co-working residents and museum staff. 
Creativity in one form or another is what forms the common ground of the ACMI workplace. Talking about that and collaboration, however, is one thing; making it happen through design is another altogether “The team at Warren and Mahoney has certainly made use of colour in this project - but it’s in the nitty gritty of spatial planning that the concepts are realised.

One of the best anecdotes from the initial workshop was from a member of the team who said, ‘I come here as an accountant but leave as a creative'. The workplace has been designed to connect people to what they do because, ultimately, everybody contributes to creative expressions and outcomes.

"Working with Warren and Mahoney has been a rewarding collaboration," says ACMI Head of Technical Services, Aaron Hock. "They’ve worked with ACMI to deliver a functional, contemporary design that puts creativity on display in a workplace designed for collaboration. Relocating our team from Southbank to the museum – alongside our galleries, studios, cinemas and labs – is helping us to drive stronger connections across ACMI through greater collaboration and cross-pollination between our staff, co-working residents and our Fed Square colleagues."
