CHR Hansen

For about 150 years, CHR Hansen has contributed towards sustainable agriculture through new technologies unlocking the power of good bacteria.

CHR Hansen required a full upgrade of ground and first-floor offices at their Bayswater site. They aimed to implement a fresh new look and feel to create a vibrant working environment. And that’s where we came in.

  • Location Bayswater, Victoria
  • Industry Manufacturing
  • Size 900 sqm


During our discovery sessions, we identified that their new workspace should foster a tight-knit and collaborative community between their various departments.




Our design included a strategic shift from an enclosed office environment to an open plan working style.

We carefully integrating the new layout with the existing building structure. The best use of existing walls and doors that could be reused was made. This was not only cost-saving but also reduced waste.

Communal spaces were incorporated to improve the connection amongst the employees.

An “access consultancy” report was included during the design phase to ensure that the new workspace meets the regulations for visually impaired and differently-abled personnel.


We delivered the project in phases that allowed the CHR Hansen team to maintain their daily business duties with minimal disruption.

The final result is a visually bold but softly furnished interior, providing a bright and homely atmosphere to a previously dated workspace. Staff interaction is greatly improved, with additional facilities for client and internal meetings, quiet zones, project rooms, and a very relaxing breakout area.


“On a scale of one to ten, the impact of our office is a ten. Our staff love it. We love it. Working with Sensa has also undoubtedly been a ten.”
