Coal exploration and development company Carabella Resources wanted their new company head office to create a great first impression: to be corporate and professional, with an added touch of luxury.
It was decided that a core colour scheme of black, grey and white made the best use of natural light in the building. Vibrant splashes of red on furniture, feature walls and cabinetry were also used to create focal points without interfering with the overall calmness of the rooms.
In an innovative use of space, a striking red feature ‘box’ was inserted in the main reception area to house the CEO’s office and teleconference room. The strong colour provided an uplifting contrast against the cream walls of the reception, and complemented the custom Ambro panels used for the reception counter and sliding doors.
A stylised auger motif (a reflection of the company’s mining background) created from Carabella’s corporate logo was used on surfaces throughout the offices including kitchen splash backs, glass walls and desk partitions. This pattern repetition tied the spaces together, creating a sense of belonging and community for visitors and staff.
