Shape Group Australia Pty Ltd
Offering professional, 5 star physical office spaces like meeting rooms and boardrooms for short-term hire, as well as related catering and receptionist services, Offices First also offers more distant, ‘virtual’ services like receptionist duties, mail management, a formal business address for company documentation, and access to secretarial support.
This Brisbane-based business recently extended its office solutions to the Aspley Hypermarket and sought Prototype’s skills for the manufacturing and installation of the new, luxurious office fit-out.
Prototype collaborated with the client and architect for the furnishings of the project, ensuring quality craftsmanship and the creation of pieces that fit the grand design of modernity and sophistication.
Create a sleek, contemporary venue while incorporating textures like commercial wool blends and linen weaves for a look of professional elegance throughout the premises. The client sought the finest materials for a high-end, timeless and enduring look.
How We Did It
Prototype used the architect’s selected fabrics and finishes, namely pearl white powder coating and solid timber features, to execute a posh, professional aesthetic. Prototype sourced and custom-manufactured pieces for the reception, dining, casual meeting space, and visitors’ area of the venue.
In the meet-and greet reception area, the plush, custom upholstered Annette Tub Chairs and statement Kent Sofa were tied together with deep button detailing for a more indulgent look. Meanwhile, modern and minimal Node Coffee Tables, with their floating-like feel, add soft timber grain textures.
For the dining space, simple half-black, half-white Tweet Chairs were nestled under half-oval compact laminate tabletops. The mix of shapes and contrast of colours is unique and contemporary without being overtly bold for a corporate space.
Despite its reference as a ‘casual meeting space,’ the area offers the same designer touch as the more formal spaces. Complete with a custom-manufactured timber coffee bar table and white powder-coated steel Nolita High Stools, this is a smart and stylish space for caffeinated conversations.
The specified visitors’ area is both neat and universal. Plain white tables are a staple of the office, and two sizes were produced with custom tops to fulfil the brief at Offices First.
The end result of this project is a blend of professionalism and style, exuding an air of corporate class with the versatility to accommodate a broad range of businesses.
