Allen & Unwin is Australia’s leading independent publisher and has been voted “Publisher of the Year” twelve times including the inaugural award in 1992 and ten times since 2000.

Following the acquisition of Murdoch Books, Allen & Unwin were in need of more space or a substantial reconfiguration to accommodate the new staff.

Morphos were pleased to be invited to find a solution for the preferred option of staying put and happy to accept the challenge of fitting more in, including more staff and storage, while opening up the space and improving on staff interaction, at the same maintaining quiet workspace for the editing staff.

With a solution created to meet all of the objectives, the next challenge to was to keep the organisation operational while the work took place. With a little staging and the opportunity of the holiday period, Morphos completed the extensive works in under four weeks.
