In a first for Sony globally, WMZ Interior created a workplace solution to accommodate the New Zealand companies of Sony Electronics, Sony Pictures, Sony Music and Sony Computer Entertainment in the same office location.

The solution is a sleek spatial envelope where the four companies can take ownership of their respective work areas, retaining their established brand individuality whilst the collaborative zones, communal meeting and socialising areas provide opportunities for staff to share knowledge and mingle as a larger entity.

Speaking on behalf of the Sony group, Sony New Zealand Country Manager, Martin McManus said “We’re delighted that New Zealand is paving the way throughout the world and is the first location where all Sony Companies will operate from the same office. We’re excited to be working with our colleagues from the other Sony businesses and believe this direction will be fantastic for our staff, but also for business. Increasingly, our global direction is for the Sony family to come together as “One Sony” and we’re delighted to be bringing this direction to life in New Zealand.”
