Charter Hall Fitout, Brisbane
Charter Hall’s vision for their new office in Brisbane was to provide their staff with a modern office space - creating an informal, relaxed, and supportive working environment that departs from the classic commercial fitout elements.
To achieve this Cox and NDY merged the design philosophies used for hospitality, residential and commercial projects to create a space that challenges the expectations that asset owners and occupants have regarding the commercial environment.
Charter Hall’s vision is immediately noticeable in the interior design - with its herringbone timber floor finish, reeded glass elements, locally-sourced marble features, metallic curtains and richly coloured upholstery.
But it’s in the spaces integration of invisible and indispensable smart building features that the environment sets a new standard in adaptability and occupant experience.
ENHANCING THE MODERN OFFICE
The flexibility and simplicity of the lighting system alone has added significant value to Charter Hall’s tenancy.
The lighting design provides a flexible and intuitive solution that utilises the advanced wireless controls of Organic Response to allow the lighting to be adaptable to the multi-disciplinary uses of the various areas and collaborative zones.
Fagerhult’s Mini Touch track spots have been used throughout to provide an attractive, flexible and scalable lighting solution. NDY worked with Eagle Lighting Australia to design a customised track mounted ORT sensor with a slim profile to integrate seamlessly with the 50mm wide lighting track system.
The track mounted spotlights can be easily re-positioned and aimed for optimal impact and, thanks to the ORT mobile app, the light levels can be tailored to the requirements and personal preferences of the occupants.
Charter Hall also benefit from outstanding environmental and sustainability outcomes thanks to the Organic Response sensor nodes automatically dimming light levels in areas that are vacant or receiving large amounts of sunlight - a key marker of success for Charter Hall who have targeted a Gold WELL rating.
With a focus on sustainability, innovation and seamless integration of technology, Charter Hall’s new office in Brisbane is a stellar example of a modern commercial space.
