Set within the outline of a busy factory warehouse, the space has become a retreat for clients and developers to discuss and experience the evolution of manufactured housing.

This fitout, just as the organisation, is unique with a large, configurable open space for model displays, social networking and large conferences. Embracing “no walls” the Nextform floor plate allows for a clear view through the space.

Every zone from the statement green bar to the semi transparent meeting spaces are functional, ergonomic and one of a kind. The space is an ever evolving foot print for large meetings, conferences and training seminars.

It is an example of zero waste real estate – where the floor plans can be transformed to catered for a large and diverse audience without structural intervention.
