David Caro


Location: Melbourne, Australia
Type: Fitout
Status: Completed 2018


The existing spaces and labs on level 2 of the David Caro South building were successfully converted into a contemporary offices. The refurbishment involves designing shared hotdesk workspaces across level 2 with private offices and meeting rooms. Improvements of the central mechanical system by WSP engineers provides the space with supplementary fresh and tempered ventilation. The interior utilised the concept of 'speed, eddies and flows' in creating active and fluid space. The compositional grid of the layout was tilted and rotated  to achieve openings and to increase the sunlight penetration into the deep building plate.
