Open Haus

Posted on Fri, 20 Feb 2009 by midcenturyjo


I love it when my inbox is groaning with photos emailed by our favourite architect Scott Weston. Once again he has included one of his amazing models but I’ll let him explain the space.

“We thought you may appreciate an office fitout for a pr company, open haus that we are just completing including the branding. The idea was to build investment pieces of joinery with BLUM hardware that can be dismantled and moved when the company expands. A very functional planning layout that clearly distinguished between public and private areas with glimpses through to other rooms. Each particular space has it’s open specific look with materials and finishes to suit. Public areas are delineated as silver and gold metallics with the company logo of turquoise as the single colour insertion. The linear silver planes also form the main corridor and storage units to the staff workstation areas beyond. All storage areas are finished in high lacquer hot saturated colours with black internal carcasses. Conference room (plaster birds and leaf lights) and breakout space (leaves and lawn) have witty and quirky details that reference the Clients attitude to enjoying work and referencing open haus. Boardroom has it’s own digitally printed carpet, woven gold fabric and rubberised metallic chair frames and movable resin boardroom table 3m x 1.8m in signature open haus turquoise resin.”

Conference Room- Brunschwig & Fils Linen upholstered walls with plaster bed details inset to wall.

Lacquered Staff Storage Walls and turquoise workstations. Breakout Space with lawn digitally carpet yet to be installed and black pinstripe suiting and mutli stripes to purpose designed sofas.

With the exception of the conference rooms, the space reminds me of Post Modernism of the 80s.

so gorgeous. I love the first home. When can I move in?? The crisp clarity and lightness of this home is truly awe inspiring. Very Zen!

What a fabulous modern OFFICE. I adore all the colours. I think colour is totally necessary in a space where you need to be creative. Great job as usual Scott!!!

It looks incredibly cool with some fantastic details, but I have to wonder if it will look dated really fast. There are some seriously trendy pieces in there.

Ooooh, so shiny! I love so many of the details and the saturation of colours. But the joinery is what took my breath away. What a fabulous fun interior, both to create and to work in, well done and thank you so much for showing us!
