Australian designers Street & Garden Furniture Co. have revamped their office, an ex-warehouse space in Brisbane.

The project employed scaled-up fabrication methods and materials used in the company's street furniture projects.

The office features perforated surfaces based on "classic computer games, cherry blossoms and dappled light" while the gates are decorated with an enlarged Rorschach inkblot.

“A great place to hang out” was the prerequisite for this ex-warehouse space in Brisbane, Australia. Considerations included where to place games tables, sound system, bar and balconies for Fridays afternoons and entertaining clients. It was to become a place creatives gravitate towards and fight to leave.

The Street and Garden Furniture Co. design team set out to adapt fabrication methods and materials from recent street furniture products defying expectations of scale.

The play of light though voids, derived from classic computer games, cherry blossoms and dappled light, create impromptu patterns day and night. Both structural and decorative elements are adorned in this way; the gates weighing 140kg each represent an enlarged Rorschach inkblot, while they swing without a sound on custom hinges.

Externally street art was commissioned to bring further life into and around the space. While internally, a balance between the white of a gallery space and the robustness of a warehouse was sought. The designers workstations defy gravity, creating both private and shared spaces to encourage collaboration and conversation.

The strong connection between the in-house design team and the local design community has seen many memorable exhibitions in design, art and music come together in this space.

    Yeah baby fantastic design, would like to work there. But the first thing I would do is to move the workstations away from this coolish wall.
