Working closely with Express Interior Design (EID), Swan Group had specific ideas when it came to the design of its new Wangara premises.
The design brief was to devise a bright, fun space that reflected the company’s culture.
As interiors are Swan Group’s main business, it was imperative that the fitout reflected the company’s high standard of quality and workmanship. In addition to this, the workspace needed to include a formal professional space for the reception and boardroom area. This represents an impressive entry point for visitors while still having a connection with the more informal spaces, making it one large collaborative workspace.
EID produced a design concept that incorporated natural and raw tones in the selection of finishes, including concrete, spotted gum timber, ply elements and grass-look carpet. With client-facing areas downstairs and informal workspaces on the first floor, the flow of the zones was important.
The spotted gum timber staircase joins the two levels together, while the ‘caged’ drop pendant draws focus on the height of the void, making a massive statement within the space.
Similarly, in the breakout area, the elements of timber and concrete have been carried through to mirror the reception’s look and feel.
The overall design encompasses Swan Group’s fun and generous nature in a space that is created specifically for how the group enjoys working together as a team.
