The fitout of the client’s Head Office delivers a sophisticated and restrained design, providing a warm, calm and welcoming interior scheme. The transformation from aged standard office accommodation to the new revitalised workplace occurred while the building was fully occupied, with a complex staging arrangement to ensure there was no negative impact to the operation of the organisation. The staff have expressed pride and satisfaction with the completed refurbishment, particularly the calming impact achieved through using colour in the reception space, an important part of the original brief. The client’s refurbished workspace delivers a mature, elegant and balanced interior design scheme which has had a positive long term impact on staff and visitors to the environment.
The warm tones in the carpet provided inspiration for the sophisticated colour palette. The earthy tones have been carried forward in the patterned timber veneer panelling, and the fresh turquoise highlights have been repeated in the furnishings, joinery highlights and paint colours. The carpet selection provided an anchor, allowing for brighter, strong accent colours to be provided in other soft furnishings. The plank format carpet tile has been installed in a herringbone format creating an additional playful textural element. The same pattern has been carried forward in the breakout spaces using the timber grained vinyl planks accented with solid colour highlights in the same range to continue the same colour palette throughout the building. High performance materials were specified to ensure ease of maintenance and longevity.
