Subsea 7 is an oil and gas company who perform complete subsea field developments. They provide design, engineering, construction, installation and facilities maintenance for the subsea production of oil and gas.
Located on St Georges Terrace in Perth’s CBD, Subsea 7 engaged us to redesign their reception and tendering areas on level 11. In response to their brief, our aim was to engage the subsea environment throughout the interior. The colour palette is indicative of the companies existing corporate colours that are illuminated in the signage and carried throughout the fit out.
The reception is designed to be an open, welcoming space, identifying Subsea 7 as a company. Through materiality and texture, the space features finishes and elements reminiscent of subsea; the wall tiles imitate the waves of the ocean and the gloss finish quartz carpet reflects the ocean bed. This sand like surface aligns next to a warm timber-flooring axis through the building.
Moving through the tenancy are the private offices, workspaces, and meeting room. It was important these spaces weren’t isolated from the rest of the spaces though they were still required to be secure. To achieve this, we created an open plan layout wrapped in wave frosting design. The translucent materiality gives the workspaces security and acoustic privacy, while still being interactive and connected to the exterior spaces.
