South Wharf Tower is a reinvigoration of a once tired and cold office lobby into an immersive experience. Inspired to make the entry experience an uplifting journey, a holistic ensemble of three sensory episodes; a business lounge; intimate seating area; and the lift lobby, were nested within the existing lobby, making it a place to be. In the glazed business lounge, clever layering of screens and dados, with nested pavilions, and loose furniture vignettes creates a loose and feathered space with undertones of residential intimacy.
The intimacy of the seating area works in counterpoint to the business lounge, whilst the timber lined lift lobby offers a crescendo of timber tactility and a sense of expansiveness at the culmination of the journey. Creating a unique sensory entry experience, the business lounge has provided massive uplift for the landlord and tenants alike.
