Guest Group

Collaborating With the Renowned Guest Group

Guests’ name is synonymous with impeccable styling and superb design. For nearly 100 years they have transformed countless residential and commercial spaces across Australia, using interior furnishings and innovative property styling techniques.

Guest Group was in the process of upgrading their office space and sought Canopy’s help with designing a fitout that could serve a variety of functions for their team.

An Office That Speaks For Itself

Our approach to fitout design started with the client. How would a leader in property design and styling want their office to look like? How would they want it to function?

We dug a bit deeper and imagined the fitout through the eyes of a potential Guest Group client. In this case, a large project home builder seeking a stylist with a keen eye for trends in interior design and furniture. If the office reflected this trendy, homely aesthetic it would be a powerful affirming signal, further legitimising Guest Group as the right fit for a project. 

So we worked from here, developing a fitout that reflected the professionalism of the brand, yet also embodied the modern, homely charm found in every Guest Group-styled property.

Combining Beautiful Forms With Effective Functionality

As you enter the building, a sleek charcoal timber-panelled wall guides you towards the industrial-framed meeting rooms. A matching panelled curve in the interior gives the impression of a softer space beyond reception. The meeting rooms have been purposely designed to reflect an industrial loft aesthetic, with fluted glazing for privacy during client meetings. 

The ground floor is designed for collaboration and flow; and can be used by team members and clients simultaneously. Design teams also have workstations running alongside internal offices, all of which are positioned to take in an abundance of natural light. This layout works to elevate the interior, giving an illusion of more internal space (due to the grouping of workstations).

The colour scheme throughout the design consists of natural materials such as warm timbers, natural stones, charcoal tones and colour-blocked sage laminates and paint. These natural materials are juxtaposed against pops of brass, making the interior feel luxurious, modern and incredibly homely. This interior feel is continued through to the multiple tea points and office spaces across both floors of the fitout.

Internal teams are split across both levels of the office, yet through the clever kitchen design, both floors are encouraged to actively engage over the course of the day. Multiple areas of collaboration and breakout spaces were implemented to make sure that teams could work together and not feel separated.
