Market-leading supplier of portable room dividers and mobile partitions, Portable Partitions Australia (PPA) was approached by Jones Lang LaSalle in Sydney to help create a dynamic multipurpose office space for one of their clients.

Adaptability and flexibility are two key requirements if an office wants to ensure maximum utilisation of available working space. Having a multipurpose space will allow room for dynamic utilisation to optimally meet varying needs such as meetings, functions, training sessions or chill-out areas.

In this particular instance, the client sought a flexible work and game space within an existing large cavernous room. The solution would enable the client to quickly and easily transform the room, depending on requirements. From an aesthetic perspective, the client wanted to incorporate bright and vibrant custom fabric colours to match the current room décor. The client also wanted to avoid expensive permanent building works.

Portable Partitions Australia supplied multiple units of the 360 acoustic portable room dividers in various sizes to allow maximum versatility as well as dampen sound travel between different quadrants of the room. Custom fabric panels and polycarbonate panels were used to create a bespoke look and feel. PPA’s portable room dividers are easy to fold, stack and store when not in use.

The end result was impressive, creating a modern and fresh look and transforming a previously underutilised space into a hub of activity.

Manuel Ortega, Senior Facilities Manager for Jones Lang LaSalle commented that the portable room dividers have helped transform a single large room at their client’s office into a more flexible work/game space. The room has been divided into four different spaces that are used as a combination of small meeting rooms, boardrooms and games areas. The white polycarbonate panels can be used as whiteboards or customised with logos and artwork, and the fabric panels are used to pin or tack things.
