Brisbane Office Design

Client: Speculative Office Fitout (Suite 1)

Category: Commercial Interior Design

Location: Coronation Drive, Brisbane

Overview:  Modern Concepts partnered with RAW Commercial to design an upmarket speculative fitout for two tenancies in Coronation Drive, Brisbane. Both fitouts were designed to capitalise on the premium Brisbane River views and to present bright and sophisticated spaces. Suite 1 covered approximately 316m².

Design Brief:

Suite 1 had a new incoming tenant so the colour palette for the space was selected to be in keeping with the tenant’s corporate branding.  A sense of sophistication was achieved through carefully selected materials including black heritage bars and fluting film for glass partitions, Natural oak timber laminate for custom joinery and beautiful fish scale splashback tiles for the staff kitchen.  The vinyl flooring was laid in a herringbone format to again create a sense of style and luxury, while feature orange carpet tiles added a sense of lightness to the space in-line with the tenant’s brand.

Acoustic wall panelling was introduced in key areas to enhance the comfort of high traffic and noisy areas while the layout fostered further staff wellbeing with modern and comfortable furniture.  Spatial planning ensured that the main entrance areas and front of house spaces (including meeting rooms, the boardroom and waiting areas) all captured the stunning river views.  The overall layout was designed to create open plan spaces with purpose including 28 open plan workstations, a zoom room, phone booth area and casual meeting spaces.
