Client: CHC Affordable Housing
Having just completed the Eclipse development for CHC Affordable Housing (CHC) in Bruce, AMC were engaged to design and superintend the construction of CHC’s new administration offices occupying 6 of the ground floor retail tenancy units facing onto the main Braybrooke street frontage.
The fitout was to accommodate 24 staff in a combination of offices and open plan work areas. The support spaces include a reception point, informal meeting space, meeting rooms, board room and staff breakout. The staff breakout area is centrally located and an interesting focus from Braybrooke Street. The “cold shell” tenancy lent itself to the fitout having an industrial feel throughout the office and to this end building services and the building soffit were left exposed and painted black. A sense of warmth is achieved through the use of timber and striking upholstery fabrics and sections while the entry floor were left as raw polished concrete to differentiate the client areas, breakout room and reception circulation.
