The design for the Plenary office fit-out in Melbourne’s Rialto tower is a celebration of craftsmanship and refinement, resulting in an interior spatial experience that is focused on Plenary’s workplace culture and values. As a public infrastructure business, the client experience was their primary focus. Upon arrival, space has been designed as a personal and engaging setting, reflecting the client’s values. Formal and informal meeting areas are designed to provide a level of privacy without restricting access to natural light and expansive views across Melbourne. With the focus on social engagement, the reception area is designed as an entertainment space for client functions, helping to create a vibrant, lively and activated workspace.
Working with a traditional 1980’s central core structure as a base, the design team worked to break down the rectilinear geometries, employing a design sensibility found in urban and landscape genres – in order to deliver guests into a wonderland of sumptuous materials and bespoke details akin to an elegant residential setting.
