Fairwork Australia

Melbourne, VIC


Completion  |  2005

Jackson Architecture successfully responded to a challenging brief for the new premises of the Fair Work Commission (Melbourne). This brief mandate was to provide an innovative and progressive design that delivered improved amenity and facilitated collaboration for the Public, Registry staff and Commission Members. The design intent acknowledges the Commission’s history and traditions by the integration of artworks into built design elements.

The project comprises three distinct functional zones; Courtrooms, Conciliation Suites, Judicial Chambers, Registry and Administrative facilities. Extensive and thorough stakeholder and user group consultation was employed throughout the briefing, schematic and design development phases of the project, ensuring that the challenging and dynamic design meets all necessary functional criteria.
