Sydney’s TKD Architects has secured a new Surry Hills office as the company moves forward.
October 14th, 2015
Moving offices for Tanner Kibble Denton Architects was seen a vital component of the transition for the company as it takes to a new direction. The new office in Surry Hills brings together the existing team on one level, while providing space for additional staff as the practice grows. The new fitout embraces modern innovative workplace ideals such as open place workspaces, shared collaborative meeting areas within the work areas, quiet meeting and retreat rooms and informal gathering spaces.
Located in a converted warehouse on Foster Street, Surry Hills, the original fully glazed light well admits a soft natural light to the core of the plan. This coupled with full height windows creates a well-lit work place with a positive and open ambience for TKD Architects to create and grow in
With floors retaining original polished concrete aesthetics, a pleasant contrast is created with the new interior finishes, including waxed black steel lining to the foyer and a leather, timber and a rich orange colour palette throughout. Black has been used consistently for all exposed services including ductwork, cable trays and suspended lights. This approach was taken further in the selection of black finished door hardware and taps.
The decision was made for TKD Architects to remain in Surry Hills after extensive research into alternative locations. This new site has provided the opportunity to design an aspirational workplace, reflecting the vision and profile of an evolving practice whilst providing a real sense of belonging and creativity for the whole TKD team.
