Award Entry

New Challenger headquarters from BVN Architecture 

The Challenger project brought together three separately located business units into one location in the refurbished office space in the Hilton Hotel Building. The project is designed to house 600 staff over four contiguous floors developing the business imperative of 'one team'. The environment provides a vast atrium space inserted into the existing building, with the space providing a hub of activity centralising all meeting spaces and public spaces within. The core space is unified by a continuous stair from top to bottom linking all floors. Clients experience the space on the second floor, entering into a reception that acts as a bridge, exposing the workings of the business.

Challenger chose to leave a prestigious high rise city building that did not reflect the values of the business and relocate to a low rise refurbished 60’s building to reinvent the Challenger workplace. The old office represented the old organisation, planned around a central core focusing out to a spectacular view of the harbour. The new workplace design is inward looking creating a new heart to the business revolving around the people of Challenger.

The project developed numerous design principles that tied with the business principles developed by Challenger. The project incorporated a high degree of consultation throughout the business in developing the final design solution. The design and procurement continued the collaboration with architects, project managers, consultants and contractors in delivering an innovative approach to reinventing the existing Hilton building.
