As a mostly decorative intervention, we rationalised the palette and added personalised character and texture to compliment the existing formal architecture.

Furniture placement and form was meticulously curated to encourage the spaces to better perform their function and encourage interaction.

Drawing from their existing favourite art and furniture pieces, we selected two core tones of a smokey deep green and burnt ochre. We used these colours to anchor each space, and utilised bold contrasts and highlights to better articulated our clients social and playful characters.
