How might we create workplaces that can also improve health and wellbeing, enhance organisational culture and increase operational performance? We create Office fitouts Business parks Commercial towers Medical Suites 320 Adelaide Street Facade Upgrade Brisbane City 320 Adelaide Street Facade Upgrade (Brisbane City) From potential safety hazard, an industrial face-lift breathes new life into this commercial building. Located within the central CBD area, this existing commercial building was previously renovated with foam cladding presenting a fire safety risk to its occupants. Rather than simply replacing new for old, there was an opportunity to breathe new life and personality into the existing 1950’s building. With the desire to minimise the impact on the internal fit-outs, retain as much of the existing glazing as possible and working within the limits of the structural load capabilities, a highly unique outcome was required. The new transformation comprises a matrix of metal cladding panels and extrusions to create a sleek, industrial tectonic to work harmoniously with the existing gridded facade composition. To compliment the tower facade, finer metalwork elements, exposed brickwork and expressive lighting bring a finer grain detail and pedestrian scale to the lower levels. As part of the new upgrades, the facade design also brings an improvement to the thermal performance of the building, reducing its on-going running costs. When complete, the upgraded building will provide improved long-term investment, create an attractive workspace to its tenants, and continue to act as a citizen of the city for decades to come. Indooroopilly Golf Club Indooroopilly Indooroopilly Golf Club (Indooroopilly) Indooroopilly Golf Club are redefining their offerings for their members and visitors. Major changes are on the way for the entire club beginning with recreating the journey. Our task to provide equitable access and better facilities for members and guests is a long and winding road. Fundamentally the original 80’s Architecture stands strong and creating new links through the building, and around the building, is creating some great outcomes. The refurbishment hinges on the greenspace of the greens and the extensive trees and heritage of these, which surround the club. The sport itself drives us to integrate the activity into the building, blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor. The renovation includes extensive new changerooms for male, female, unisex and PWD, new foyer, lift, business lounge and admin spaces. A new extension includes golf retail and expands the golf operations offerings.

The Retail Precinct on the ground and podium levels of 180 Brisbane and 192 Central caters for both local staff and commuters passing through from Brisbane’s Central Station to the CBD. With a wide variety of spaces for indoor and outdoor meetings, lunches or after-work gatherings, the brief called for a series of highly polished and curated experiences. Family Nurture Clinic Pacific Pines Family Nurture Clinic (Pacific Pines) Designed with children, adolescents and their families in mind Family Nuture is a safe place for healing and treatment. With growing demands for their psychiatric, psychologic and other allied health treatments, it was time for Family Nurture to expand into a new space supported by their new branding. Dr Amin and his team were very keen to provide a comfortable space for everyone that is calm and welcoming. Their touches of monkeys and books add to the warmth and homely nature of this space. The palette is refined to reinforce the calm, as are the textures and patterns. Everyone has been thought about here from the kids who want to draw, to those who need their own space away form others, to the staff looking to run training or share a consult room. Photography by Arrow Media Collective Show more places for work, connection & wellbeing 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? We create Apartments Townhouses Hotels Student accommodation Aged care Private homes Florian Taringa Florian (Taringa) Located along Swann Road on a dual-frontage site, Florian Residences makes the most of its steep terrain, creating 16 luxurious apartments and a generous communal rooftop area Located along Swann Road on a dual-frontage site, Florian Residences makes the most of its steep terrain, creating 16 luxurious apartments and a generous communal rooftop area. The building has a timeless, robust expression of feature brick and articulated glazing which is softened with lush sub-tropical landscaping and the gentle curves of deep balcony recesses. Fine-grain operable screening elements and balustrades bring a human scale articulation to the design and give the residents control of their preferred levels of privacy, street interaction, and natural cooling. Visuals: Nord Studio Ashford Residences Everton Park Ashford Residences (Everton Park) From dairy to exclusive residential enclave. Ashford Residences is a master-planned residential enclave in Everton Park. The estate will comprise of a combination of attached and detached residences masterplanned to create a unique offering focusing on a owner occupier market. In its current state, the site was used to house dairy livestock and has significant biodiversity and ecological overlays. These have influenced the masterplan design with a significant parcel of land to the south being dedicated as a landscaped wetland area which will bound the existing Kedron Brook reserve. The wetland will also act as an extension of the existing Kedron Brook Reserve, blurring the delineation between the waterway corridor and the site. The existing Heritage-listed Murphy’s Dairy residence is located on the corner of Ashmore Street and the entry driveway into the development. This residence will form part of the “Entry Statement” into the development and may house uses such as a sales office. The integration of this dwelling into the development has been vital in respecting the sites previous life and defining a modern Queensland vernacular to continue throughout the development. Monterey Kirra Beach Monterey (Kirra Beach) An exceptional, ultra-wide, north facing beachfront site located within one of the Gold Coast’s most coveted locations. Monterey is nestled on one of the last remaining beachfront sites in Kirra Beach and was a rare opportunity to create something truly iconic.  With approximately 50m of sweeping north-facing beach frontage and panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean & Gold Coast coastline – there is no comparison. With a tonal, textural palette of finishes, married with lush tropical landscaping, we wanted to blur the line between inside and out. We kept the hardscape natural, earthy, light, and crisp to let the colours of the landscape really pop. Strong horizontal banding, reminiscent of the layers of sand waves from tidal movement, exaggerate the curved edges to open each residence to the stunning views. The result is 35 residences over 14 levels of smooth, fluid design aesthetic, inspired by the stunning natural landscapes that surround. First Bay Coolum First Bay (Coolum) Luxurious living with a humble coastal feel. The coastal landscape of Coolum is characterised by eroded edges, where the ocean and tides have cut and formed the rocky landscape. The First Bay development, consisting of two interlinked buildings, evokes qualities of this varied landscape in its architecture - with solid concrete forms and soft edges referencing the rocky beach front. The material palette further grounds the building within the sloping context – using neutral-coloured stone and smooth concrete that will age gracefully and patina over time. Consisting of 38 two- and three-bedroom units, split across two buildings, First Bay makes the most of coastal living. The buildings were designed as a curated string of experiences; each step in the journey fulfilling a need created by the location. There are showers and surfboard stores at the entry from David Low Way; and materials were selected to be hardwearing and tactile while lighting is minimal and thoughtfully-placed. Carefully-planned internal spaces allow for cross ventilation and natural light, and prioritise the living spaces towards the breathtaking views in the East. The units address the demands and desires of an owner-occupier market, with generous living and storage spaces, and hardwearing yet luxurious-feeling material choices.

(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? We create Cafes & Bars Retail fitouts Shopping centres Lifestyle centres Graphics & Branding Ashford Club Everton Park Ashford Club (Everton Park) Designed to celebrate the outdoors, the Ashford Club makes the most of Queensland living. Ashford Residences is a master-planned residential enclave in Everton Park. The estate will comprise of a combination of attached and detached residences masterplanned to create a unique offering focusing on a owner occupier market. The residents’ club hosts entertaining pavilions including alfresco dining , sunken fire pit, resort style pool, fully equipped gymnasium and is surrounded by an Eco Area and lush sub-tropical greenery. The 22m long resort style pool is the centrepiece of the facility extending out to the wetland edge. Surrounding the pool is a multitude of seating options to cater for everything from large group functions, intimate gatherings, families or individuals searching for a quite retreat. The process was extremely collaborative between ourselves, the client, landscape architect and other specialist consultants as we wanted to create a truly integrated and carefully considered outcome that was enjoyable to use at all times of the day.

The Centres in Hilton (Adelaide) and Claremont (Perth) are the most recently completed projects in a suite spanning Australia and New Zealand. Working alongside the Miele Architectural team in Germany, both the Perth and Adelaide Experience Centres were major refurbishment projects of existing fitouts. The joinery and finishes palette were designed to highlight the appliances, and lighting was carefully considered to enhance the visitors’ experience. The spaces were designed to be free-flowing and flexible – allowing shoppers to see the different areas from various vantage points. A demonstration area is central to the design; where users have the opportunity to see the appliances in action for the creation of a full three-course dining experience. Both spaces were pared back and carefully considered to organise how the display may change over time. Finishes were detailed to allow easy transition to new displays; with a focus on reducing landfill and disruption to the staff and users. Photographed by David Sievers Photography One50 Gaming Lounge Bundall One50 Gaming Lounge (Bundall) Warm, reflective materials are combined with luxurious velvet and brass elements to create a truly unique and intimate venue for various events and audiences. Situated on the second floor of the One50 Public House in Bundall, the new gaming and cocktail lounge offers patrons a sophisticated evening venue with views of the Gold Coast skyline. The client wanted to improve the experience of their gaming lounge and expand their entertainment options, so the existing gaming lounge was relocated to the upper level, and accompanied by a new cocktail lounge, private dining room and a bar and kitchen to service the new spaces. Designed to cater for various events and audiences, the lounge offers various spaces that each have a different feel. Finely-detailed joinery elements divide the gaming and cocktail lounges; while each area has a variation on the fitout’s overall approach to lighting and finishes to create distinct spaces within the larger floor plan.  The cocktail lounge is complete with luxurious, plush velvet seating and dimmed lighting, inviting guests to relax and enjoy the quiet intimacy. The gaming area on the other side makes use of timber batten screens, dark coloured materials and full-height timber joinery to create smaller, quiet zones among the bright flashing lights. Supporting both these spaces is the bar – the heart of the venue. The materiality and lighting here is distinct, warm and reflective with a copper counter top, timber batten detailing and shimmering splashback tiles. The Whistle Dixie Fortitude Valley The Whistle Dixie (Fortitude Valley) The clients decided on ‘The Whistle Dixie’ for the name of this café/bar fitout – in reference to a quote from a Clint Eastwood movie. This playfulness set the tone for the design, and we worked with the client to inject fun into everything we did. The Whistle Dixie sits on the ground floor of Aurizon’s sleek 15-storey office building in the Fortitude Valley. In a playful nod to the building’s main occupant – Australia’s largest rail freight operator – we used trains as our departure point for inspiration. The main counter represents derailed carriages with train tracks hung above, a light box portraying the ‘X’ train stop sign is seen in the front window, and the floors feature recycled timber sleepers that have been recessed into the concrete. These touches are mixed with luxurious, high-quality finishes that help to create a space that can cater for patrons seamlessly from the early morning to the late evening. The client wanted the space to be flexible in how it could be used through the day – they needed it to be light and open during the morning when the venue was a café, while also being a warm and intimate venue come nightfall. We achieved this with large, mobile, curved velvet lounges under high-level planting, subtle leather and brass touches, and full-length curtains that allow users to create smaller function spaces when needed. The name ‘Whistle Dixie’ came from a Clint Eastwood movie, which injected some fun into the fitout - not just in name but also in touches throughout all the branding. This was a true reflection of the clients’ attitude, which we were able to highlight as we took them on an identity & branding journey. It was extremely important that the venue’s interior design and the Whistle Dixie brand worked seamlessly together. We worked closely with the client to create the logos, graphics, signage & stationery, which has given the restaurant a truly unique identity.
