The design of ADCO Construction’s new South Melbourne premises by Woods Bagot conveys a sense of craftsmanship and the company’s commitment to construction innovation. Throughout the design, Woods Bagot have referenced ADCO’s reputation of innovation within the industry by employing the use of a brick motif screen, constructed in timber. The unique screen element also dictates the chosen palette of a blonde timber and neutral finishes, complemented by greenery throughout the space. Lerod chairs by Derlot in a white powdercoat finish reinforce the use of light surfaces.
The contemporary workplace features a range of open and collaborative areas, one hosting a standing-height Blade table by Thinking Works with a planter box backdrop. ADCO’s sophisticated new reception area features the Catifa Sensit Lounge by Arper with Tailored Coffee Tables by Ross Gardam. Woods Bagot associate Debra Longin said the scheme aims to connect people and foster relationships; “The arrival experience offers an immediate view into the heart of the business and its people. The framed views expose the dynamics of the team as they work, share and socialise.”
