Torus Offices

Torus has had a few locations, always in the Eastern suburbs of Melbourne and within a fairly narrow radius. We started out in Ferntree Gully, moved to Boronia, then Mitcham and settled in our current location in Bayswater in December 2008.

The building was a sports injury insurance centre with lovely pink carpet and fibro ceilings. Easily-fact-checkable theories abound about the building’s prior origins. Our favourite is that of the funeral home, evidenced by a glass atrium and a large room with racks which may have been refrigerated in the past.

Our team stayed in Mitcham while management worked with the builders on our new office throughout most of 2008. It was a relief to be relocating, considering that it had become staff procedure to grab buckets and towels during rain because of the leaking roof.

The entire Bayswater building was gutted to the four walls and our team had a few wonderful games of indoor soccer during construction. We divided the building into two main halves. One side is for admin, with the managing director’s office, meeting rooms, store rooms, our board room, the stationary room, the admin office and the kitchen. The other half is the dev area, which is a large open-plan studio where our team can work together with easy access to everyone else.

In the interests of being green, we had a state-of-the-art custom air conditioner installed, exterior security blinds which can be lowered individually to help keep the building cool in summer and warm in winter, and a large water tank. We’ve kept as many trees on the property as possible and have been rewarded with an abundance of native birds, especially in spring. We are also filling our gardens with local plants such as vanilla lilies, lomandra grasses and native violets to encourage native insects and reptiles.
