MaxCap Group

Located in Melbourne’s CBD, MaxCap; a market leader in commercial real estate investment required an aesthetic that suggested sophistication without bordering on opulence.

At the entrance, a timber batten ceiling adds warmth and texture to the visitors’ first impression, contrasted with a white perforated metal ceiling along the open section of the floor plate, providing access to city views and meeting rooms. Studio Tate purposefully implemented this material shift allowing for the transitioning effect from one experience to the next.

Terrazzo and perforated metal were employed as a direct link to the civil elements of a bridge, with Arflex furniture pieces selected for their celebration of exposing structure and form.  The design aesthetic reflects an established and experienced organisation where creative thinking and collaborative work is nurtured. A variety of meeting settings allow for a full range and scale of conversations, and withdrawal spaces enable focused individual work.
