Our journey began when we discovered this beautiful space within a Donovan Hill designed building in Brisbane’s CBD. The space had an abundance of light to three sides, an inherent palette of finishes and a delicately perforated façade with ties to the adjoining heritage building.

Combined with our branding journey and exploration of our users we set the tone for our space which needed to be adaptable. We reviewed how our needs have changed over the last ten years and how this could change daily and into the future. We decided that our space needed to respond to the context and sit delicately within bringing softness and comfort to an otherwise corporate space.

Our design supports the ever-changing use of spaces and our desire to stimulate creativity. Our curtains can encapsulate otherwise open areas to form rooms and change spaces form transparent to private, and from work to play when entertaining. Our “grey space” which ticked all the boxes to provide our users with fresh air, quiet space, serenity, greenery and wellness makes our home a stage for us to set the tone both today and into the future.
