Creative Spaces were engaged to refurbish and re-plan existing commercial office premises in Hornby, which had minor damage due to the Christchurch earthquake.
We provided both design and project management of the second floor fitout which involved the extension of the National Call Centre, and refurbishment of existing sales and breakout areas.
The existing, tired broadloom carpet of approximately 1100sqm was fully replaced in the refurbishment.
Working with existing furniture and screens with multiple colours, the aim in selecting the new carpet tile was to choose a neutral backdrop which did not clash with the existing colours in the space. It was also important to create a light and bright atmosphere in contrast to the dark cave-like conditions of the existing fitout.
The carpet specified for the project was Equilibrium II Rotate & Static with highlights of Solid Foundations Navy Blue, Light Grey, Mid Grey. The randomised checkerboard effect created a visual interest and contrast.
The combination of new carpet, lighting, paint selection, and custom graphics/decals aid in creating a fresh and revitalised office space.
Solid Foundations Aqua was used as a feature exclusively in the refurbished breakout area, and this refurbished breakout area provides a vibrant and contemporary space for the 100+ staff to relax and socialise.
