In their own words, “in a profession where attention to detail is everything, Evans and Peck sought a partner that could manage a high level finish with precision.” So engaging the brainstrust of SHAPE and WMK Architects, then, was not only necessary but an absolute inevitability. Grappling with challenging deadlines, the need for smooth transitions and change management considerations, the design of Evans and Peck’s new premises reflects the company’s ongoing commitment to excellence. Providing deep domain expertise and advice to clients in big industry, this dedication to quality and exactitude whispers throughout both the largest and smallest of details in their new Sydney offices, realised with the assistance of handpicked specialist trades to ensure the supreme quality of the end result.
And the end result is nothing short of breathtaking. Surrounded by stunning views of the urban skyline, the offices are flooded with natural light that bounces off the generous use of polished timber throughout. The wellbeing benefits of timber, however, have not been forgotten for this newly activity-based working environments. Renowned for its calming influence, acoustical qualities as well as key respiratory benefits, timber’s extensive use throughout the various spaces of the office provides a vital support network for Evans and Peck’s staff, through intelligent and considerate design approaches.
Combining the latest workplace innovations with a warm and textured design approach, Precision Flooring’s engineered parquetry oak was finished in our sedate yet also rich Oslo treatment. The strong graphic nature of the parquetry design interacts with the layering of organic materials in evidence wherever the eye alights, offset with the organicism of softened corners, a lack of sharp edges and bespoke fixtures throughout the built environment.
Seeking to bring a new degree of sophistication to the traditional corporate landscape, the project reflects the human-centric values of our current era: a collaborative workforce, an open experience and culture, and contemporary ideas of connectivity flourishing to transform not only the way we work, but the way we interact with one another.
