Places to Work & Connect

Workplaces are a physical expression of a company’s culture and DNA (after all, we spend 10.326 years of our lives occupying them!)

How might we create workplaces that can also improve health and wellbeing, enhance organisational culture and increase operational performance?

Ellivo Office

Brisbane City

We are a firm that likes to create the architecture of what matters. Our fitout was no different. What matters to us is embodied in our new home which provides a serene environment for partnerships, collaboration and creation.

Being designers we were excited by the prospect of testing our approach to the end user by starting with our staff and clients and personifying their needs and mapping out their possible journey with us.  We soon realised that our clients and staff were all very different and this led us to create spaces that could adapt.

We created private spaces where meetings can be confidential, small meeting spaces and public spaces where people can connect. We wrapped all of these in a series of movable curtains that change the privacy and use of the spaces. We can cocoon spaces and make them private, we can adjust lighting and become more of an entertaining space. The uses are varied and practical to take us through the next five or ten years that we may be here.

AJ & Co.

Brisbane City

AJ & Co. are not a standard law firm and they are very proud of this. The experience of being their client is unique, relaxed and enjoyable and this is exactly what they wanted of their new home.

This is a very young and vibrant business, bursting with enthusiasm that we were very excited by the first time we listened to their vision for their move to much larger premises.  Taking over a largely existing floor we had a modest budget with which to create their dream – the arrival to a law firm that was to be very AJ & Co.

From the lift doors opening on level 18 of Waterfront Place the foyer opens up through their arrival area to river and city views. There is no reception welcome, just a welcoming space, iPad sign in and then onto the lounge. Complete with bar and spaces to meet and relax, the space is to be shared and enjoyed.

Redchip Lawyers

Newstead

Redchip Lawyers are a medium sized law firm seeking to exude a modest and sophisticated environment for clients and staff that encompassed their values

Their desire to demonstrate integrity and openness is embedded within their new home. From the moment you step inside the front door the client area is open and has views to Newstead beyond and the newly refurbished historical Gasometer. The combination of smoky glass, polished concrete, concrete, plywood and leather provides comfort and texture in the detailing and a most warm welcome.

Places to Live & Stay

Residential design is not just about four walls and a roof (or how many you can stack on top of each other).

(How might we create places that generate joy and delight, that inspire, that increase the quality of life, and that are respectful of their context?

Nero Newstead

Newstead

Newstead is a rapidly developing inner city suburb with a rich history and diverse cultural background

Newstead is a rapidly developing inner city suburb with a rich history and diverse cultural background. It occupies an oxbow in the Brisbane River that has evolved to have a rich cultural identity. We partnered with the Panettiere Development Group, to build on this heritage and create a rich space for people to live in. People who live in Newstead seek more than just a place to live. To them, life is a rich tapestry of different cultural experiences. Nero Newstead offers a sculptural contribution  to the Newstead context offering a hotel-living experience through sleek and opulent homes.

Rainbow Bay is an evolving beachfront boulevard of Coolangatta. We partnered with our long-term client Aspect Property Group, to deliver a catalyst of exclusive living which reflects the unique assets of the site, in particular the direct proximity to Rainbow Bay beach. Our client sought to deliver to a niche of down-sizing owner-occupiers looking for a premium product. We focused on creating a timeless built form, minimising the amount of rendered surfaces was important in delivering a building that aims to look admirable long into the future.

Arena

South Brisbane

Arena is a collective response to the context of the people, the site, views, orientation and ground level activation

Arena is a collective response to the context of the people, the site, views, orientation and ground level activation. We partnered with Galileo, to deliver something unlike anything else is South Brisbane and its strong bold form makes a real statement in the vibrant South Brisbane community. The central courtyard defined by the expression of the podium form, is the heart of Arena and is host to active public gathering areas, and private retreat and refection nooks.  The rotated podium and tower form takes advantage of the expansive view lines, allow views for neighbouring buildings and creates an urban courtyard that contributes to both the public and private amenity.

C2 House

Fairfield

The site of Corso House occupies a unique oxbow in the Brisbane River in Fairfield that provides for uninterrupted river views.

The site and client held three key criteria, design for flood immunity, design for ultimate privacy and design for openness and light. The contrasting requirements for achieving privacy in a light filled home formed the framework for the project. As each step up toward the house protects it from potential flood waters, the gardens that surround its entry step into the house. Our clients were our co-creators of this new home. Being retired empty nesters, this was a place not only for them to call home, but a retreat for their extended family and friends. With this in mind we focused on provided flexible living spaces, which could accommodate activated living and entertaining as well as private play and sleep out guest rooms.

Places To Eat, Drink & Play

It’s not just about the brand, the product or the service (it’s about creating experiences that put a smile on the dial).

(Our challenge) How might we create a feeling of delight the moment they begin their journey – when they’re finding a car park, when make their first steps toward their destination, when they’re waiting in line for their coffee, or browsing the aisle?

The Centre serves as a welcoming gateway, reflecting true community living while holding a strong connection to the landscape in which it is sited. Situated amongst vegetated nature reserves, the design seeks to connect and blur boundaries between the inside and outside, unlocking views across the adventure playground and mountain ranges beyond and balancing the requirement of an open accessible ‘pavilion’, while engaging with the landscape. The design is accessible, welcoming and familiar and enhances the existing features of the site for all visitors to share and enjoy.

The café sits on the ground floor of a large office building, and is directly accessible to office workers, passing pedestrians, construction workers and nearby residents. We took our clients on an identity and branding journey, working in partnership to create the logos, graphics and stationery, which has given Fortitude Café a truly unique identity.

The fitout is light filled and open-aired, balancing a refined yet edgy personality. Featuring pops of pink neon lettering (‘The F. Word’) - sitting above a pink velvet banquette in the lounge, hand glazed emerald green tiles, distinctive Patricia Urquiola triangle breeze blocks, herringbone terracotta tiles, the design emphasises our client’s passion for their work and has created a distinctive living and dining area.

Peel St Kitchen

South Brisbane

This vibrant, new restaurant and bar is located in the heart of South Brisbane’s trendy and emerging arts district

This vibrant, new restaurant and bar is located in the heart of South Brisbane’s trendy and emerging arts district. We were was tasked with designing a flexible yet welcoming and engaging venue that would accommodate breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as casual cocktails and privately hosted events. In such a pedestrian-oriented area, it was necessary for the design to draw people in to compete in an already bustling area. The fit-out includes approximately 400sqm of interior space as well as a small exterior seating area. Inside, the designers created a dazzling new bar and lounge, full-service dining area, private event space, back of house kitchen, and all required amenities. The interiors aim to create an engaging and non-pretentious venue to enjoy the modern Australian cuisine and unique cocktails while also encouraging visitors to admire and enjoy their surroundings, creating a truly unique and dynamic dining experience.

Goodness Gracious Cafe

Graceville

Goodness Gracious Café is a beautiful boutique café in the quiet and leafy suburban setting of Graceville

Goodness Gracious Café is a beautiful boutique café in the quiet and leafy suburban setting of Graceville. The existing building was originally an old Queenslander style home and then a corner store before being converted into a café. Our clients wanted to create a homely café with the possibly of extending into the neighbouring house in years to come. We worked closed with our client and also Brisbane Commercial Kitchens to achieve the most efficient layout possible in a small space, as the menu and food produced in this kitchen was very important. The design and layout of the kitchen was very important to not only cater for the patrons now, however with the possibility of catering for a larger space with the future extension in mind.  The palette was clean and simple with feature materials and finishes. Rustic finishes including warm timber floorboards and a concrete look counter benchtop provide texture and provide a sense of familiarity. A simple white gloss subway tile was laid on a 45-degree angle to create an elegant look. The white tongue and groove ceiling through-out and feature profile panelling used helped to pay tribute to the style of the original building. This palette was set off with industrial features like the feature pendant over the counter, coffee machine, and open black ceiling hung shelves.
