Proptech startup PEXA has merged three offices and over 200 staff into a new workplace in Collins Square, Melbourne, designed by Futurespace.

Futurespace, design director Gavin Harris said the workspace is built around a central café zone which acts as the thoroughfare for both sides of the office.

“PEXA wanted to move into a space that would encourage staff to socialise and to create positive energy.," he said.

“To help support the employees, we brought in sit-stand desks, designed collaboration or scrum spaces, and created an office that facilitates people working away from their desks.

“We also implemented a range of design tactics in the office to support employees.

"These included bringing in natural materials like climbing green walls, creating exposed ceilings, lining the walls with timber, introducing texture and colour through flooring and soft furnishings."

“Being in such a central location, with the entire Melbourne-based team under one roof is helping to create a stronger team for our growing business,” she said.

PEXA was ranked as the fifth fastest growing tech startup in the Deloitte 2016 Technology Fast 500.
