Building Project:

Improvement of the exterior and entrance to the office building. To improve street presence the architects added a 2 story pavillian element in dark colours. The Reception area has been fully modernised replacing the grey interior with a rich palette of materials in darker colours. This refurbishment included a new ground floor entrance on the side of the street.

The Architects designed a beautiful reception area with dark panelled walls, followed by a lighter section creating height and space above. The main flooring area is a rich dark lava stone in a chevron pattern with bespoke reception desks. There are brass details around the lifts that work beautifully with the anodised light gold aluminium grid entrance matting of the interior entrance matting area. By combining this with the dark charcoal goat hair infills the entrance matting has become part of the whole design and a considered design element within this building project. By choosing a rubber for the external area the Architect has not only thought about the use and durability of a busy entrance but also works well with the dark tiles in the external entrance area to the street.

This has been a fantastic opportunity for EMS and as always a pleasure to work with Estillo Interiors on this project.
