Brighton Road Office
This commercial renovation of the Finesse Built office space evokes a high complexity in its appearance stemming from an equally thoughtful design and construction process. Many of the features throughout the office renovation were bespoke, including exposing the structure of the building and services, through the steel beams and air conditioning ducts. These were deliberate design decisions to reinforce the company beliefs of transparency and honesty.
Under the curved Victorian Ash timber ceiling, the imported Japanese glazed Artedomus feature tiles and the restored existing Flemish bond red bricks, the entry is defined. A bespoke, patina brass handle on the custom powder-coated steel doors open onto the reception area that is framed with mild steel. Behind reception is a functional storage space and kitchenette. Nearly every element within the space is bespoke, even the polished concrete floor mix was customised with a Tungston Grey oxide.
The open plan workstations wrap the windows that overlook Brighton Road which is cloaked in a perforated Rigitone Galaxy acoustic ceiling and curved feature Victorian Ash batten ceiling to reduce noise resonance and reinforce the company values of transparency and collaboration. This idea is furthered by the exposed lighting tracks and wires throughout, and glass sliding steel doors that define the boardroom.
The heart of the office renovation is the hand-crafted inverted boardroom table constructed of reclaimed African Mahogany with clear glass insert and steel frame legs powder-coated matte black. Each individual element of the table was personally and masterfully crafted by Finesse Built construction manager, Hayden. The table is highlighted by a bespoke brass linear pendant and floor to ceiling joinery which conceals a working bar.
Hush glass was used when replacing the windows and doors to minimise the noise pollution from Brighton Road.
Overall this is a crafted project, marrying the company values of integrity, innovation and trust with cutting-edge style and quality workmanship.
Finesse Built is always looking for opportunities to transform residential and commercial interior spaces.
