Having grown out of the previous office space, this original, run down, depleted double shop front on Elsternwick’s busy Glenhuntly Road, presented the perfect opportunity for the re-location of Sketch HQ.
The brief was to merge together the two shop fronts to appear as one, whilst retaining the original charm of the building from the exterior. Internally, the full potential of the building’s character was utilized.
Inside was stripped out, whilst original brickwork and blockwork was re-discovered. The existing roof trusses were exposed and painted to create a striking contrast to the crisp white ceilings. The main entry and boardroom which fronts Glenhuntly Road has the additional inclusion of polished concrete, stained timber battens and plywood ceilings. The main studio has playful splashes of bright green and orange throughout to maintain a creative work environment.
