WHAT WE DIDOffice Fitouts
The team at Sornem Private Wealth are highly skilled advisors who provide tailored financial and investment advice to long-term clients, families and corporates. In recent years the business has grown so significantly that the team needed to relocate to a new space. Vision is something Sornum has bucket loads of, so when they selected their new office space they didn’t let the obvious choices dictate the end result!
When we met with Drew Meredith, one of Sornem’s Senior Advisors and Partner he told us, ‘you have the freedom to create something so long as it exudes the same values of our business.’ He was looking for a high quality finish without compromising the finer details, the Canopy Fitouts team wanted to embrace a design that had an edgy yet secure feeling. When we saw the space we knew we had a fantastic palette to work with!
Offices that exist over multiple levels are a treat and Sornem’s new space in Richmond was no exception to this rule. The lowest level of the tenancy had a real ‘bunker’ feel which the new design certainly modernised, while maintaining a gentle nod to its industrial roots. This is where the rainforest concept starts, with kitchen, breakout and communal recharge spaces all housed on this level. From here we go to the trees where client facing meetings are held. The treatments are more detailed to evoke that warm and secure feeling juxtaposed with the industrial setting to maintain a modern edge. Plush statement guests chairs are strewn throughout, set against a black and white palette with detailed natural wood laser cut walls and doors. The Canopy Fitouts design team also made sure they maximised natural light flow throughout the level with lots of glass.
