(OFFICE – BUILT – SYDNEY)
‘Catalyst Effect’ is a dynamic firm of accounting and business advisers. To relocate their offices on a very limited budget, the design approach relied on simple, clever planning, a bold use of colour and a few pieces of sculpted joinery.
With a fixed entry point from the lift lobby, the conference room was placed on one side of the reception and the offices on the other side. A file storage area was positioned behind the reception allowing a more private connection between the conference room and the main office. To still get natural light into the reception, a thin horizontal window was placed in the wall between the reception and file storage area. Positioned at eye level, the window also gives a view from the reception area to the outside, expanding the perception of space without showing off the clutter of the photocopy and file storage area.
The main office area is divided into separate work bays around the perimeter using simple coloured screens.
The centre of the office area is used for group meetings, and allows for additional workstations to be added as the company grows in the future.
The conference table is designed in eight separate pieces for greater flexibility allowing one single large conference table to be transformed into a number of different configurations for workshops and training seminars.
The sculptural lectern houses power and phone cables for multimedia presentations.
