Working in the non-profit sector can be rewarding but challenging. The key to delivering a successful project is to design a space that feels new and exciting for staff without appearing ostentatious to external visitors and donors. We created a simple, calming palette of blues and turquoises offset with a light timber that is used in key joinery pieces. Further layers of mid gray tones were added in the light fittings and upholstery and the reception desk is finished in a textured concrete look render. These soft tones are subtly re-reinforced in the environmental graphics and glazing film that runs through the space.

To help with budget restrictions a number of existing joinery units were retained and repurposed in the new fit out. Existing carpet tiles and ceiling were retained and we were able to source an number of carefully selected second hand furniture pieces that resonated with our design intent.
