We completed a simple, yet stunning office fit out solution for a small space in Richmond. The existing office design of our client Shopping Links, needed to be reconfigured to allow staff members to have a large meeting space, a private call area and open plan workstations. The space we had to work with was very narrow, but we managed to accommodate all aspects of the brief in this recent office fit out in Melbourne.
The building is part of a newly built corporate drive, with a red brick façade and black trims it is a modern industrial haven. It was important we had the exterior of the building flow to the interior. We like to look at things as a whole experience, it is the small subtle connections that make a space have a sense of continuity.
The inspiration for the interior architecture was derived from the combination of both a modern sleek look while playing off the industrial surrounds. A mixture of both allowed us to provide the client with a high-end feeling space while tying into its surrounds.
The open plan workstations were relocated to the first floor of the tenancy, which allowed us to enhance and utilize the use of office space downstairs. The perfect opportunity arose under the open riser of the staircase. With precision, we designed a private workspace which allows the staff to be able to make a private video or phone call. All walls and ceiling of the booths are cladded in an acoustic panel to trap noise. An added feature is the sliding barn door if you need some natural light or perhaps additional privacy you can slide the barn door across the booths accordingly. The large boardroom with paneled glass partitions allows the space to flood with natural light. The angled wall to the boardroom not only allowed a 10-seat table to fit with comfort but enhanced the unique design of the space. We cladded the ceiling with MDF panels to slightly lower the ceiling to subtly separate the space.The balcony was fitted out with stunning pots and furniture to allow for another breakout space and for the tenancy to be used to its best ability.
The best part about completing this office fit out was to recognise how much we assisted this company to be able to be more efficient in their day-to-day work life by providing design advice and guidance
Overall, the result was a sleek, semi-industrial office fit out that is flexible and comfortable within its different workspaces even though small on size.
