Brisbane Office Design

Client: Elevate Communication

Category: Office Design | Commercial Interiors

Location: Manilla Street, East Brisbane

Project Size:  312m²

Overview:  Modern Concepts was engaged to create a new office space for Elevate Communication.  The 312 sqm commercial space was housed across two levels and offered an uninspiring existing fitout. A welcoming and bright entrance area and flexible working zones were created including a large boardroom with glass stacking doors opening on a central kitchen area to accommodate large events. The brand’s personality and sense of fun was fostered through themed meeting rooms and a fresh staff breakout area (complete with table tennis!).

Design Brief:  The existing space was dull and dated and not at all befitting of the creative communications team behind the Elevate brand.  The design brief was to create an inspiring space that was polished, creative and fostered team connectivity whilst also conveying the brand’s professional approach.  Using an open plan design, exposed ceilings created height in the space and were combined with concrete flooring to promote a modern industrial feel.  Timber accents and hanging greenery added a splash of colour and texture while branded carpet and bayside themed meeting rooms added fun corporate elements to the design. Practical acoustic wall panelling ensured meeting rooms were comfortable and usable.
