Having outgrown their offices in Subiaco, Triathlon WA needed to secure new premises for their expanding team. After short-listing a few possible tenancies, the team at JUO were engaged to review the preferred space, something that is rare in our industry. This opportunity offered the client confidence that each of their accommodation requirements would be met by the space prior to signing of the lease.
Once Triathlon WA secured their lease, a conceptual plan was developed to communicate to the client how the space would best work for them. Upon approval of the concept, we sought approval from the landlord and then set to work talking to furniture suppliers, cabinetmakers and floor covering contractors to see who could help us realise our concept within the limited budget available.
By keeping the colour scheme and furniture aesthetic “loose”, we were able to explore several options such as discontinued furniture runs, second hand furniture and floor covering off-cuts, before making the final selection.
With the help of several contractors and suppliers who were sympathetic to the charitable nature of the project, the final fitout utilises a cohesive mix of some relocated items but mostly new furniture which include workstations and task chairs, flip top meeting tables, stackable chairs, storage units, planter boxes and trophy cabinets. A custom designed reception desk with a signage display area and new floor coverings to the manager’s office complete the works. Existing furniture from the previous office was re-used to furnish the managers office.
Colour and drama was introduced via both plants and sport specific imagery including the Triathlon WA logo. Together these create a totally unique and client specific office space.
The team at JUO would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that contributed to this project.
We are looking for another charitable project to sink our teeth into for 2013...so if you are a registered charity or a non-profit organisation and in need of our building or interior design services, then contact us now!
