NBC Universal and Matchbox Pictures

NBC Universal and Matchbox Pictures appointed SHAPE to complete a design and construction engagement on the back of a recent Sydney fitout. The design brief required our team to incorporate a space for Matchbox Pictures, CPG and NBC Universal that was fun and functional. The aim was to create an efficient and functional workplace which reflected the creative culture of Matchbox and Universal.

Originally a warehouse, this space was transformed into an industrial feel office that included new bathrooms/showers, editing suites and writers’ rooms. The client was concerned with the global standards set by NBC in the UK, so we addressed this by holding regular meetings, coordinating with the UK IT team and using reverse briefs before proceeding.

This project also involved incorporating three different brands in one space. This was addressed by identifying key design elements early on, and regular progress monitoring, reporting and inspections for each of the different brands.

In collaboration with Siren Design and CBRE, SHAPE was able to achieve Perfect Delivery for NBC Universal. The client was very pleased with the successful outcome of the project and our team’s professionalism.

“We are thrilled with how the project has worked out and very excited to move into our new home.”
