Match is a boutique property development company whose focus is on delivering projects with an emphasis on quality design. The upper ground floors of the building are dedicated to small commercial office spaces whilst the remainder of the building comprises contemporary apartments behind a 1920’s façade.
The space now occupied by Match was originally fitted out with low height jarrah and obscured glass cubicles, common in banks and commercial buildings during the early part of the 20th Century. For this reason, the design concept for Match utilises the Herman Miller ‘My Studio’ Office System which provided in this case, the perfect 21st Century metaphor for the way the offices were originally intended for use. The modern fitout for Match was also intended to be a low impact insertion with very little new construction impacting on the perimeter walls. It was determined in the early stage of the project that there should be minimal changes to building services; from energy consumption and cost view point hence the resulting open collaborative space.
