Armadale Offices

We have just finished rendering out the concept design for an Armadale Office project.  This was a fantastic chance to flex our design muscles and focus on blending a very large building into the edge of the business area.  After testing out dozens of schemes, we’ve uploaded our two favourite concepts below.  



The BEC Pearl Room Offices are a luxury set of offices at Burswood Entertainment Centre.  A high level of finish was required, with ample natural lighting and ventilation to create the best possible working environment.  Through a strong consultation process with the client, we narrowed down the brief to their exact requirements.  The result is a very high level of finish that is incomparable to a standard set of offices.  Combined with the environmentally sustainable design principles employed, the working atmosphere in these spaces is optomised to create a sense of lightness, atmospheric comfort, and natural acoustic levels.
