Melcorp Property

The project required a complete workplace reconfiguration of a split-level tenancy in Melbourne’s CBD for Melcorp, a branch of PDG Corporation, who Studio Tate had previously worked with to design and deliver their head office fit out.

Our vision was to open the space right up to maximise access to natural light and the unique views over the landmark City Baths. A crisp, white palette accented with light greys and blues in the corporate colours of Melcorp on the flooring and walls added volume and connection. To add texture without weighing down the brightness of the office, a custom finish timber veneer with rout line detail for joinery was used.

Workstations were brought in from the upstairs perimeter to enable light to penetrate the entire floor, and open plan, bench-style desks were installed, with small meeting moments placed around the edge to act as break-out spaces.
