Organisation: headspace Bentleigh

headspace Bentleigh is an initiative of The Alfred.


headspace is the national youth mental health foundation. They support young people on a range of issues, including depression, anxiety and relationships.

Recent growth has seen headspace open a number of new offices across Australia. Disruptive Media was asked to consult on the new Bentleigh office environment design.


Disruptive Media worked closely with headspace Bentleigh to create a unique, engaging environment that – first and foremost – made young people feel at home. The space was also carefully designed to play to the strengths of the headspace brand.

A key part of our approach was creating an environment that supported people to have good outcomes. We considered each step of how a client would engage with the space, from the exterior windows right through to the internal signage and lighting. We also designed and created a community garden for clients to use, offering an alternative to the traditional office space.


We’ve integrated the look and feel of the headspace brand across all elements of the space, including:

• lighting, finishes and occasional furniture
• external window treatments
• wayfinder signage, door, window and wall graphics
• theming of meeting rooms, back-of-house offices and consulting rooms.

The result is an inviting environment that resonates with the headspace audience.
