Integriti Bathrooms Office
When Sydney’s Integriti Bathrooms moved into their new offices in Willoughby, they were in a state of severe disrepair. It was a priority to restore and highlight the principal architectural features of the 1920's building: high ceilings, a traditional fireplace and original mouldings whilst ushering in the brand’s dynamic design sensibility with a playful, corporate tone.
Befitting the colour of the company’s logo, Cobalt blue highlights punctuate areas of the office, whilst slick charcoal grey facilitates flow between each room against a dominating canvas of black and white. A key design feature includes the quirky main entrance wall with toilet seats arranged in a linear grid (an instant talking pint between staff and clients). A Cobalt blue cow-hide rug splashing the corporate meeting room’s floor and pops of this shade in the staff boardroom via a custom glass notice board and integrated in the stairwell’s painted balustrade unify the adjoining rooms.
Textural depth is added through the angular modernist wainscoting of the custom joinery cupboards housing sample selections, the black and white optical rug in the ‘fall-out’ area for staff, and via the mirrored elements of the original fireplace in the open-plan office area reflecting bands of colour on the office walls. Together with its predominantly white mid-century furnishings, the office is a crisply spirited ode to innovation.
