  • Mim Design has developed a new office for Pask located in Melbourne, Australia.

    The design brief of Pask responds to its inner city location in Melbourne. Heavily influenced by its position on the 15th floor, the 170sqm design takes full advantage of panoramic views, connection to the Flinders Lane streetscape, segmented nature of the rooms and it’s practical yet residential like appeal. Drawing inspiration from the modernist styles of the 1960s, the design plays homage to an urban sophistication, clean geometry and interesting juxtapositions.

    As you enter the foyer from the elevator the space becomes one of warmth and intimate comfort in a refined, gallery-like environment. The office is a boutique combination of cultivated styles which have been realised through the use of quality materials that evoke classic, understated luxury including; Elba marble stone, engineered timber, supple leathers, timber ceilings, glazing inserts, plush upholstery and polished concrete floors punctuated with inset brass accents.

    Materials were selected based on their warm masculinity, while the sophisticated yet pared back palette was implemented to highlight the strong lines and design elements of the multi-purpose office. The palette is elegant and well resolved to create strong focal points throughout the hybrid open-planned spaces.

    Refined charcoals, rich greys and creamy nude tones bring both a warmth and softness to the space and contrast with graphic elements such as the black structural beams and sleek surfaces, whilst timber lined ceilings create a sense of theatre and luxury. All the classic design maxims of scale, proportion, silhouette, texture and finish have been carefully considered to achieve an overall look of relaxed glamour within this unique office fit out.
