Courts Services Victoria – Community Base Venues
Harmer Architecture has been appointed by Court Services Victoria to undertake a fitout of an existing office building to a Level 5 VCAT facility in Oakleigh, Melbourne.
The look and feel is centred around a positive visitor experience and an efficient and safe working environment for staff. The aim is to create the kind of spaces where people are made to feel welcome. Simple measures such as choosing a variety of seating options will make people feel more at ease. Furniture needs to allow for people to group together or for others to sit alone.
The interior architecture will also allow staff to easily survey what’s going on throughout the public areas and in the secure circulation spaces so that they feel safe and connected with each other.
The look and feel will centre on these realities and create a space that is welcoming, inclusive and supportive. We will create an interior where the integration of staff and visitors appears seamless so that people feel that their experience of VCAT was worthwhile and positive.
