Client: Australian Government - Department of Industry. Innovation & Science
Completion: July 2018
This new office fit out for a federal government agency occupies a mid rise level of the existing office tower at 100 Creek Street in the Brisbane Central Business district.
Constructed in 1974, the original tower offers ‘good bones’ for a modern office fit out.
The public arrival and communal spaces are celebrated with a delicate wrapping of blonde timbers and light stone as a skin that threads itself through key collective spaces in the office.
Internal timber fins frame views, culminate vistas and filter natural light through the plan. Detailed joinery elements enrich everyday moments that form the routine of daily office life, such as welcoming visitors and addressing staff meetings, down to one-on-one meetings of special importance through an offering of warm timber touch points.
In contrast, office spaces are afforded a level of spartan simplicity to compliment the richness of the arrival and communal areas, allowing the beautiful bones of the tower a place in the conversation.
