The renovation began with a high-grade CAT A fit-out of the entire 4th floor, creating a bright and spacious, flexible space, instantly attractive to new tenants.
In the second phase, we commenced with further structural work, levelling floors and moving walls on the ground floor. This helped to reconfigure a more contemporary, open space with plenty of room for people to flow through, aided by a repositioning of the original door.
To complement the existing architectural features of the building façade, all new mullions, glazing panels and metalwork were respectfully designed to reflect the existing style. The building was rebranded and as part of this, the 33 logo was redesigned and modernised in the art deco style.
Back on the ground floor suite, in the spirit of re-using and making good, we enhanced the existing flush plasterboard ceilings and inserted laser-cut ceiling rafts and backlighting to create a beautiful art deco feature in the space.
This was contrasted in the adjacent reception space with black mechanical ducting and black light fittings. We combined exposed materials with treated counterparts, using exposed, clear-sealed plywood and refined concrete to create a raw yet sophisticated look.
Brass detailing further sealed the "industrial art deco" ambience, with natural-looking tones creating an elegant atmosphere.
Finally, down on the basement floor, we designed clean, crisp, and functional shower facilities. We opted for a striking balance of black and white metro tiles, each room with brass detailing throughout such as full-length mirrors, stools, and coat hooks; and finished with plywood doors to match the subsequent floors.
