Indigenous inspired carpet feature tiles in on-trend office design Brisbane

Toowong, Brisbane

Project Year: 2024

Category: Office Design 

Project Size: Level 5, Suite 2 – Approx 296

Overview: Modern Concepts partnered with RAW Commercial to design an upmarket speculative fitout for a tenancy in Coronation Drive, Brisbane. The fitout was designed to create a premium space with a unique office design that would leverage the tenancy’s aspect of the Brisbane River.  Suite 2 covered a footprint of approximately 296m².

Design Brief:  Like other office designs created for this building by Modern Concepts, the brief was to present a sophisticated but flexible space.  To tie the tenancy with its river aspect, Modern Concepts created a design that was inspired by the cultural significance of the Brisbane River and would present an on-trend space that offered maximum appeal.

Australian bush scenes were applied in decals while a stunning indigenous inspired feature carpet tile in various tones was utilised.  Native plant art pieces and earthy tones were applied to soft finishes throughout including furniture, cushions and acoustic panels.

A unique LED feature light inspired by the winding Brisbane River is the hero of the meeting room while a terrazzo look vinyl floor tile was utilised in common areas to represent natural pebbles. This tied together the design elements but also offered the practicality of a hard surface in high foot traffic areas.

Private workspaces were created using acoustic panelling and greenery planters with concealed storage in the joinery.

Glass partitions fostered natural light and a sense of openness throughout the space and combined with clever spatial planning, ensured the Brisbane river took centre stage.

The overall layout was designed to create defined, open plan spaces including 26 open plan workstations, a zoom room, phone booth area, two offices and casual meeting spaces.
