Project description:

A unique, architecturally designed head office building for Strongbuild at their Bella Vista 2 factory. The fitout of the two storeys, 600m office space leverages off the exposed CLT and Glulam structure with a visual grade finish to minimise the requirements of internal finishes. This commercial office space also doubles as a showroom for what can be achieved by utilising CLT and Glulam.
A feature staircase made from CLT and Glulam on solid Tasmanian Blackwood hangers along with blacked out services contrast to the white colouring of the European Spruce timber. Tasmanian Blackwood timbers are also utilised throughout, including the reception desk, boardroom cabinetry, the bathroom fitout for wall panels and toilet partitions.
All the timber elements within the building, including finished structure, acoustic treatments, feature staircase and batons, joinery, workstations and cabinetry were designed, documented and processed within their manufacturing facility on site.
