Sumitomo’s tenancy on the top floor of the brand new A-grade Alluvion building in Perth’s CBD is an office space with a difference.
February 14th, 2011
Sumitomo’s linear floor plate, with an almost 4m high volume, encased in frameless glass on 3 sides, provides a unique tenancy which maximises the spectacular view of Kings Park and the Swan River through to the foothills.
Inspired by the Japanese origins of the client, the designers at Scott Penn Hall Architecture + Interior Design layered minimalist principles with the richness, warmth and texture of natural materials.
The interior scheme sought to provide a tactile backdrop, which softened the hard planar nature of the space while keeping the focus on the 180 degree panoramic vistas.
