Client: The Hour Glass Sydney Workplace
Size: 400 m²
The Hour Glass needed a high quality fitout that would reflect the visual intent and reinvigorate an ineffective workspace. A number of logistical and physical challenges had to be overcome, including limited site access and very little onsite storage space available during any construction.
Delivery had to be completed in a compressed timeframe, while allowing for some specific limitations on flooring levels and the considerable amount of bespoke joinery to be built and installed.
We ovecame a number of obstacles during the build, not least with having to restructure the mechanical and fire services on discovering the existing services were in poor condition. While this inevitably added time to the delivery schedule, we were able to mitigate this with some adaptive processes and flexible sequencing.
The space had to be constructed around existing floor heights as no floor ramping was permitted, which required some careful onsite planning to ensure fluency throughout the space.
To complete the look we installed a selection of high-end finishes, including natural stone flooring, and natural wool and sisal carpeting, enhanced with timber veneer and fabric wall panels, timber veneer joinery and stucco.
The outcome is a warm and embracing workplace which reflects the nature of the busines and provides for a range of work activities and social connections through the day.
