A contemporary Office refurbishment including meeting rooms & canteen area, styled with a minimalist approach and pallette, designed to counter the corporate look, in line with the client's company ethos.
The brief was to design an office canteen that didn't look or feel like a canteen. Instead, our client wanted a dining space that avoided the use of plastic backed chairs and formica topped tables.
To crete this look, we integrated natural materials such as wicker, hardwood and locally quarried stone. Ceramics from local artists were sourced to complete the look.
Keep it Simple.
That was our brief from Day 1 and that is what we kept in mind throughout this project. The recption desk was custom made using locally supplied timber and was built to resemble a large block of wood. Nothing fancy. Keep it simple.
Minimalist lighting was installed overhead -four simple exposed lightbulbs.
All services and wiring were kept hidden within the frame and construcion of the desk, with just a monitor and keyboard present.
We were told to keep it simple, so we did.
OFFICE FIT OUT
An Industrial Building converted to a high spec office space.
This is a highly energy efficient NZEB renovation project.
As simple yet effective renovation to a restaurant dining space where we stripped back the finishes to reveal the original fabric of the building.
Sometimes less is more.
