Ellivo Architects’ new design studio is a flexible space that reflects the culture and ethos of the firm.
December 23rd, 2011
The new Fortitude Valley studio of Ellivo Architects sits on the ground floor of a high-rise building.
The aim of the design of the space was to create an environment that was inviting to both staff and clients. It also needed to be representative of how the firm operates, with all team members contributing ideas for the design.
The predominantly black interior is broken up by splashes of yellow and texture.
Exposed services suggest openness and transparency, and give a minimalist industrial feel to the fitout. The open plan office brings clients in to interact with the studio environment.
“It is the epitome of modern chic, and says a lot about who we are as a business,” says Mason Cowle, Director of Ellivo Architects.
“As architects and interior designers it is important that we demonstrate our capability for clients on our own space.”
