A Look Inside KordaMentha’s Elegant Melbourne Office
KordaMentha, an investment firm that provides specialist consulting, real estate, and investment services, hired architecture and interior design firms Bates Smart and Schiavello Construction to build their new office in Melbourne, Australia.
“Spread across the North and South towers of Melbourne’s iconic Rialto Tower, staff and visitors are received into a sweeping light-filled reception at KordaMentha’s new office. Featuring stone benchtops, steel-dividing screens, timber wall paneling, and imported broadloom carpet, strength and confidence emanate at first glance. Perforated plasterboard and feature track lighting line the ceiling of the dynamic, open, and collaborative space. High-end furniture brings sophistication and class to the front of house. Glass-enclosed corporate boardrooms feature acoustic wall paneling and pay homage to iconic Melbourne CBD streets. The design is careful to not isolate people; striking a subtle balance between the privacy of the rooms and the openness of the facilities. The two towers merge seamlessly via ‘the street’ through to the back of house workstations. Booth seating, acoustic wall paneling, and vinyl plank flooring create a delicate transition from the North to the South towers, bringing KordaMentha’s collaborative spaces to life. Designed by Bates Smart and built by Schiavello Construction, the facilities feature a combination of high-end materials and finishes. The permeable environment allows natural light from the perimeter to the core of the space, allowing KordaMentha to function and entertain with incredible 360-degrees views,” says Schiavello Construction
