Located at the heart of Melbourne, Spaces Rialto is in a building that defines the city's skyline. This business district is characterized by a mixture of multistory buildings, shop, restaurants and entertainment. We designed the ground, first and second floor of the building to offer 2580 sqm to fully equipped private and shared work space as well as entertainment and relaxing areas.
The architect team worked closely with Spaces to establish the branding for the office. This enables us to achieve consistency throughout the project, which revolves around a contemporary industrial design with open, bright and connected corridors.
Right when you step in, you will notice that almost every surface is wooden. The natural material is simple and calming, and with it, we can make an office seem so un-office-like. This completely aligns with the brand’s spirit: making customers feel like home at work.
To further compliment the natural tone of wood, we crafted a color palette of lively, pronounced colors. From there we curated a list of minimalist furniture. Since we are focusing on user experience, a dazzling design is not required. They attract thanks to their strong color on the cool wood background.
This combination proved to be successful. Grey and red chairs in co-working area pop up and guide guests to their seats.
In the meeting room, Kvadrat fabric is used to give the TV wall some green shades. This serves as a color accent for the room.
Contrast does matter in our design. To create a detail of visual interest in the business club area, we gave a deep green shade to the Muuto Oslo fabric chair next to the red Viccarbe Ryutaro tables. The neutral grey Kvadrat fabric-covered Mayor AJ6 sofa from & Tradition is in contrast with the two lively color. However, they blend harmoniously together as all the shades are rather cool.
The color scheme wouldn’t be effective if there was not enough light to help it show. Glass is utilized in other areas such as the meeting booth, working areas, and especially the coffee bar to liven up the calm surroundings.
Even though natural light plays a key part in this design, the place does not shy away when night approaches. Various kinds of pendant lighting are selected to set the right mood for each area, each tends to have pale and light colors and simple design to harmonize with the furniture’s bright tone.
Spaces Rialto is the result of our hardworking. We hope Spaces Rialto will be a place that helps you get work done in the comfort comparable to that of your home.
