This tailored design responds to the cultural drivers of SHAPE, creating a comfortable and inviting home-like environment where staff and clients can gather to connect and collaborate. Adopting new ways of working, the new home of SHAPE encourages connectivity, inclusivity and belonging. Showcasing the talent of SHAPE’s trades, this fitout incorporates crafted timber elements and custom exposed concrete flooring containing hand selected stones from local quarries. Biophilic design elements have also been integrated into the design, with planting and greenery woven into all spaces at different scales to contribute to improving health and wellbeing.
The SHAPE workplace is a highly collaborative project showcasing the craftsmanship achievable when client and builder are one and the same. Warm and comforting material selections provide a calming sensory experience, invoking a residential environment.
Integrated storage and flexible working areas make efficient use of the footprint. A floating mezzanine takes advantage of the extensive ceiling height, unlocking valuable additional floor space. The uniquely exposed ground floor tenancy provides visual connection to the streetscape while maintaining security and privacy for its inhabitants.
