Carsales – Sydney

Commercial | Carsales – Sydney

The Carsales culture is ‘fun, innovative, collaborative, creative and one that celebrates success’. When the company approached Intermain to design and construct their new headquarters, they asked us to apply this ethos across the design to create a working environment where people were inspired and engaged. Drawing inspiration from the company’s core business, Intermain reinforced their brand and culture by applying clever ‘car’ themed elements across the scheme. An industrial garage atmosphere was created, using innovations such as an automatic garage door in the main meeting room and faux brick walls. We also injected pops of the company’s corporate colours throughout the office. The clever integration of play-zones, collaboration areas and communal social areas have helped to foster the ‘fun’ atmosphere that Carsales have worked hard to establish at their business. Importantly, Intermain’s smart solution achieved the client’s objectives whilst respecting the heritage building in which the office is located. Work was carefully carried out to ensure the safety of the perimeter walls and new flooring was sensitively matched to the existing floor in damaged areas. Intermain’s innovations also ensured that services in the exposed ceiling were aesthetically pleasing as well as functional. Thrilled with the outcome, Carsales has reported highly positive staff feedback on the new office and an uptick in staff retention since the works.
