A small place transformed into a fresh, functional office space
Recently we had the pleasure of undertaking a small but detailed office fitout for an office building on Lime Street, Sydney.
Small areas can be notoriously tricky to renovate due to restricted space and access, but with the right approach and experience, it’s possible to embrace the constraints and produce a really special space. We were certainly up to the challenge of this office makeover and with a few clever tricks we took this small space and turned it into a fresh yet fully functional modern workspace, with spectacular results.
Tasked with re-designing the empty office as a modern conference room, distinguishing features of the area were to include custom made screens and joinery, and a central built-in television unit. We set about designing and detailing the job from basic architectural drawings, but restricted access soon posed an issue when it came to the installation stage.
During the project the building was also occupied, so keeping noise to a minimum, working out of hours and leaving public areas clean and tidy also had to be considered. Never a team to shy away from a challenge (and after some careful ‘out of the box’ thinking), we had all the components made off-site and brought in disassembled to install easily, with little disruption to occupants.
Once all the framing was installed, we integrated ultra-modern frameless glass doors into the screens for a really ‘open’ feel and finished the look with a sliding timber-panelled feature door that adds warmth and sophistication to the area.
The end result – a small, but classy and inviting office space the client can use for multiple purposes…and proof great things can come in small packages with careful planning, and the right team.
