Designing a fit-out within a building with ‘good bones’ is always a pleasure and the fit-out of this building, originally designed by Lindsay Clare, was no exception.

After completing many successful projects in conjunction with Badge Constructions, arkLAB were approached to bring some ideas and flair to their headquarter refurbishment as well as bringing the tired building into the modern era.

Existing cabinetry was replaced with crisp new finishes and the original floor finishes lifted to reveal an exposed aggregate slab. This was expertly polished, allowing the beauty of this honest material to shine and mirror the natural timber ceiling lining. Up-to-date branding techniques were utilized to provide a sense of place while tying into the overall contemporary aesthetic.
