One of our latest projects – signed, sealed and delivered.
Hosch International is considered the expert worldwide in all matters of conveyor belt cleaning and has developed, produced and installed highly efficient cleaning systems globally since 1975.
Drawing on a set of unique assets – from the building style, available space and the client’s core product, the team planned how to make the most of the textural and natural aspects of the base building finishes. The concept was centered on the core business activity – conveyor belt cleaning systems – and being sympathetic to the core building fabric, whilst ensuring the end result was unique, impactful yet respectful of its environment and would stand firmly apart in its design. Given this approach of juxtaposing natural and textural, firm and softer fabric, the use of steel was intertwined with ply, and marble floors with curved plasterboard forms. The double height space provided for a dramatic entrance, and training space and breakout areas were developed around the idea of shipping containers, which also delivered an entirely functional outcome as well, as it provided sound insulation and separation to the training room, allowing it to be sealed off. Whimsical graphics in the breakout and work space were developed from the core business products, and integrated to the internal finishes to show that although Hosch are serious about being the best in their field, they don’t take themselves too seriously. This approach was about creating both a fun and a functional space, that also provided a bit of drama to match the fabulous building. You can learn more about Hosch here.

- What was the brief?
We were originally invited to pitch on how to maximise the appeal of a display floor on Level 4 to prospective tenants – and in particular smaller businesses requiring smaller, but just as productive workspaces. Ultimately, the solution was to convert vacant space to leased space, integrating efficient configuration, visual appeal and use of the surrounding environment.
