The International legal firm was spaced out over 4 levels which was completed within three separate design and fitout stages.

The initial phase featured level 14 which included an office fitout. With a strong concept of a ‘hotel lobby’ which was translated through in the finishes, ceiling treatment and concealed lighting creating mood and atmosphere throughout each space. This concept was continued throughout the next couple of phases.

The second phase being the largest and was constructed within occupied space included levels 11 and 12. Level 11 being the main client space where the concept was truly developed. Through the use of natural materials such as timber plank walls, stone flooring, glass operable walls, marble operable glass walls to maximise the flexibility of space and custom designed furniture. Incorporating a multi-functional entertainment area for clients and staff, with a central hub and large discretely separated flexible working space beyond.

The strong concept was carried though level 12 with a main central breakout space for all staff from all other levels to enjoy.
The final phase consisted of level 13, this level being a staff area continuing the concept featuring a training room, large office space area which was open plan and enclosed offices with discrete storage areas.

“Having engaged Group HiS to carry out our initial fit out and relocation 7 years ago, we had no hesitation in inviting them to carry out our upgrade works.Again we were impressed with the professionalism of the team from the initial consultation with the designer to the construction phase with the project manager and contractors. A major advantage for us was the ability to continue to work while the fitout was constructed.
It’s a pleasure to invite clients to our new dynamic and modern space. The overall experience was excellent and we look forward to working with Group HiS in the future.”
