After an exciting brief, the Canopy Fitouts team has been working to bring another space to life for some very special clients that were in need of a well deserved make-over shop. Melbourne Movement Studio is Boronia’s newest and most comprehensive health professionals collective. Endeavouring to provide clients and the community with the most up to date and wide-ranging health and movement therapy. Canopy is very proud to have been a part of this transition for what will be a sleek and successful family owned business.
The property was originally an old TV repair shop owned and run for over 20 years. The space underwent little to no change over the course of its life and provided our Interior Architect, Sam Fossati, with a good challenge for his first job as part of the Canopy team.
Karl, Director of Canopy Fitouts, accompanied by Sam Fossati, communicated with the clients over the course of a few weeks to ensure the fitout suited the look and feel the client wanted to achieve. The process involved the specification of furniture, options for space plans and finishes for the walls, floors, ceiling and joinery. Once finalised and signed off the building works could commence!
Due to the existing condition of the property, extensive base build upgrades were required to bring the building up to regulation. Entirely new electrical and mechanical systems were installed to accommodate the new layout and suit compliance requirements.
A complete revamping of the floor was essential to the final finish of the space and through a multi-stage grind and seal process finished with a flaked epoxy resin, a durable and stylish feature was added to the project. The ceiling was in need of a similar revamping and this was achieved through a fresh spray of the entire exposed ceiling keeping important character aspects of the space intact.
On final completion the space consisted of; six practise rooms, a reception area, waiting area, Kitchen and storage, bathroom upgrades and a gym/workout room. Transitioning what was a rundown, under-utilised property into a modern and functional space.
