Food Rescue is a not-for-profit charity with the aim of alleviating hunger by rescuing perishable, fresh and nutritious food from restaurants, caterers, hotels, food wholesalers, retailers, farmersí markets and primary producers, and delivering it to disadvantaged, vulnerable people.
In support of this charity, a concept design was prepared for the charities new office headquarters in Belmont. The brief was to design a flexible working space, with consideration of buildability, budget and clear branding.
The simple and striking palette employs the vibrant red of the corporate logo on a feature wall behind reception, showcasing the charities signage. Loose furniture elements pick up on this colour throughout the fitout. A restrained palette of white and charcoal provide the base for this intense colour.
The reception counter doubles as hot desking workstations, with a slight radius to the screen attached to the counter softening the edge on the customer side and encouraging flow into the space.
The utilisation of flexible acoustic screens behind the reception area allow for the possibility of a multitude of function types, ranging from intimate business meetings through to larger training sessions.
