  • Sheldon Interiors designed the sophisticated and bright space for the JQZ Spec Suites in Sydney, Australia.

    Engaged by JQZ to craft a speculative suite that would stand out in the market and seamlessly integrate with the overall aesthetic of the new development at 558 Pacific Hwy, St Leonards, Sheldon sought to design a visually exciting and endlessly functional workplace. The result is a space that satisfies the requirements of evolving work styles and houses a generous socialisation / collaboration area that accommodates for JQZ’s entertaining requirements.

    Going above and beyond the traditional speculative fitout specifications, a large open plan breakout area was designed and constructed for the entrance of the suite to accommodate for several use cases. The space consists of a generous kitchen/break area, a town hall presentation space with tiered seating, reception, and a client lounge area that flows into the board room. These elements flow seamlessly, promoting a collaborative and social work environment.

    The library, a unique inclusion to this office fitout, provides a calm focus area where employees can work on individual tasks. The dark features of the space, frosted window, and acoustic ceiling panels achieve a positive sensory experience.

    The vast variety of workspaces and spatial modalities in the space allow users to choose their working environment based on task and neurodiversity requirements. By accommodating to a wider range of users, the full floor suite has both wide market appeal and can withstand future workplace requirements.

    Aesthetically, the suite utilizes biophilia and maximises natural light to create a bright space that encourages workplace happiness. The finishes chosen to compliment this direction by adhering to naturality such as the residentially inspired timber flooring, stone kitchen top, and entertaining space furniture.

    The client’s appreciation for the project’s quality, design, and execution was evident through their prompt securing of a tenant even before the project’s completion.
