R&F Properties Melbourne Office by Rothelowman

R&F Properties is a Guangzhou based real estate and development company. The company’s main focus is to venture into the Australian property market to develop large scale commercial and residential projects.


August 11th, 2015

ROTHELOWMAN were commissioned to provide interior design services for R&F Properties’ new Australian headquarters and have played a significant role helping R&F Property with their transition process.


The office occupies approximately 1,000m2 of area on level 52 of Melbourne’s Rialto building, with floor to ceiling perimeter glazing on all sides offering an uninterrupted 360 degree view across Melbourne. The layout is designed to accommodate the development team running the Australian projects, and is based on a combination of enclosed offices and open plan with options to grow the capacity of occupants in the future.



The design reflects the business brand of a committed and professional company. The spaces are designed with a contemporary warm ambience which plays on the textures and tones of the materials used. The design also takes advantage of the abundance of daylight to create a light and clean solution along with controlled colour accents and finishes. The detailing of the spaces is generally ‘straight lined’ to create a linear rhythm of forms.
