Marble and Velvet – Riverlee by Studio Tate

Commercial

28.03.24

“There’s something about the walnut veneer finish that is very sophisticated aesthetically, but it’s also super luxurious and cosy; it almost envelopes you and gives you a hug.”

On the top floor of a commercial building in Collins Street, Melbourne, a former plant room has been transformed by Studio Tate into a sophisticated workplace for property developer Riverlee. Housing a team of almost 50, the project harmonises the requirements of a busy head office with a desire for comfort and hospitality, largely through its elegant palette of materials including Eveneer Even Walnut timber veneer.

Design director of Studio Tate, Alex Hopkins believes the deep, warm hue of Eveneer Even Walnut timber veneer perfectly met the brief. The walnut embrace stretches from one end ­of the office to the other, spanning joinery, desktops, wall panelling and ceiling details. “There’s a wall running through the space from the boardroom to reception and the way that it is detailed, it’s crafted as if we would be crafting joinery or panelling in a high-end residential project,” Alex explains. “The wall partitions feel like they’re part of the joinery and there’s a real sense of craftsmanship in the space.” Elegant and stately, the classic ambience imparted by the Eveneer Even Walnut also gave Studio Tate licence to introduce patinated leather, natural stone and jewel-like hues in textiles and other details.

‘Connections at all levels, adaptability in function, visibility in circulation – across all scales this is a project defined by openness, fluidity, and hybridity. It’s about a workplace that allows for variety, but specifically a variety designed to make teams work and communal spaces matter’ says David Whittaker of Hassell.*

Expert workplace designers, the Hassell team have transformed the existing CBA building at Sydney’s Darling Quarter South building into a contemporary, light filled natural environment supporting wellbeing and work.

Doyens in the specification of WoodWall across multiple successful large-scale commercial projects, Hassell have maximised the characteristics of the material in the realisation of extensive swathes of lightly patterned blonde Maple WoodWall veneer, forming horizontal ribbons each seamlessly wrapping the ascending layers of soffit to create a rhythm of staggered timber horizon lines when viewed from the atrium.

The colour and texture of the veneer bring a contemporary warmth to the vast multi-level atrium, cleverly contributing to the sense of scale and proportion and, combined with the overall material selection a balanced biophilic sensibility.

From the atrium curved avenues lead to the workplace zones reinforcing this sense of movement. Once again, in WoodWall Maple, contributes a sense of movement- in its simple and familiar ‘marbled’ rotary cut pattern., The sweeping corridors have been expertly detailed, masterfully playing with grain direction in a syncopated rhythm of horizontal and vertical elements.

When Structures Take Shape

Alpi Designer Collections   Exhibition

14.02.23

11 years after the death of Angelo Mangiarotti, ALPI celebrate the legacy of the Italian architect, designer and urban planner in a retrospective at the Milan Triennale. When Structures Take Shape includes 2 large monolithic totems made from parallelepipeds of variously coloured solid ALPI wood. Built in the mid-80s to a design by Maestro Mangiarotti, the forms and concavities evoke a relationship between the planes and surfaces and reveal the infinite variety of patterns and designs that can be achieved from this material. ‘Nothing like this had been done until then.’

Sustainable, Innovative & Healthy: How the Latest Timber Veneer Technology is Transforming Interior

24.10.20

Elton Group White paper – In early 2020, Elton Group was approached to prepare a white paper outlining how the latest technologies in the veneer industry can assist designers in creating buildings which are sustainable, innovative and healthy. As industry experts and with a history of 80 plus years in the timber and timber veneer industry, this paper covers a diverse range of important facts including new technologies and best practice in the veneer manufacturing process and the unique balance of science, industry and art in the creation of more sustainable, more cost effective and more creative options for timber veneer surfaces. Supported with documentation on the health, wellbeing and hygiene impacts of using timber over man made material this paper supports timber veneer as the most authentic, inspiring and calming surface treatment.

pEG Board – 2020 Limited Edition

24.10.20

The brief to our creative Team, was to design a Christmas gift for our A&D community which would not only highlight our products, but align with our brand of quality and creativity and be useful, personal and customisable. Something which could serve as a work tool and be beautiful at the same time. Cut from our f 6mm Pangua PureGlue eply, the outcome was a flat packed interpretation of the ubiquitous old school clip board with a contemporary design overlay, complete with instructions for assembly, rubber band and a swatch of fine sand paper to keep it looking its best. pEG boards are a one-off limited edition run of 450 and available for purchase.

MINI Living — INVERT 3.0 An exhibition of future sustainable community living

24.10.20

MINI LIVING – INVERT 3.0 explored the architectural potential of laneways and offered unique perspectives on communal living, adaptive reuse and sustainable mobility. Facilitated by Green Magazine and MINI in collaboration with RMIT University, the brief to design an independent dwelling on a piece of land carved from a suburban Melbourne block.

In the video, RMIT architecture students reveal their design for a shared “forest” between neighbouring properties.

A selection of established and emerging Australian architects have been invited by Green Magazine to respond to a brief to reimagine a city block beside the Queen Victoria Market as a hypothetical urban village. Exhibited at Rapha House, architects’ scale models were displayed along with RMIT students’ installation venue open to the public from October 17 – 26 and opening by Professor Rob Adams.

Elton Group were invited to collaborate on the exhibition in creating display plinths. Our brief aligned with the sustainability agenda; each of the 24 plinths provided were made of a single roll of Spotted Gum Woodwall, not damaging the material in any way allowing for reuse.

MINI LIVING is an initiative first launched by MINI in 2016 with the aim of devising creative architectural solutions for the urban lifestyles of the future. This new installation reveals a visionary living
