Ray White Papamoa and their architect, contacted the Total Fitouts Bay of Plenty team to bring to life their multi-functional office fit out design. The owners of the International real estate company, located in New Zealand’s ‘Surf City’, famous for its 16km of white sandy beach, tasked the team with building a modern, bright, office fitout featuring many different areas, open plan spaces and rooms.
Director Jason Horn says, “The owners and designers had a very clear vision of the multi-levelled, multi-functional, office fit out they desired. They had the complex plans drawn up by Bubble Interiors and were ready to go. We stepped in to defit and transform the ‘dark and boxy’ existing tenancy, originally a travel company, into a modern, light and functional space.”
The talented local team of carpenters and trades remodelled the downstairs into an inviting reception, large waiting lounge, break out spaces, private consult rooms, boardroom, and auction room. Upstairs was reshaped into several offices and meeting rooms. An open plan kitchen was fitted, and quality amenities were installed throughout.
The focal point of the fit out was the installation of an oversized credenza to dissect the centre of the space and cleverly splitting the floor into different zones. The addition of glass panels allowed the eye to travel between the different spaces, making it feel large and airy. Verdant vertical gardens were planted in custom built planters to add an element of nature, serenity, and warmth to the bright, white space.Read more: Ray White Papamoa
The team used custom vertical panelled windows to filter light and separate the office spaces. A bright white colour palate created the foundation of the design; grey textured carpet, brass finishes and luxurious upholstery added warmth and a lux feel. Custom joinery was skilfully installed throughout including bulk heads to conceal HVAC, seating booths, secret storage, and vast shelving.
Jason says, “The client had a very clear style, vision, and design. We worked closely with them to bring their ideas to life. They had many functional and practical design requirements, essential for operating a successful real estate agency and hosting a large team of employees. The need for many meeting spaces, functional storage and multipurpose requirements of each area had to be incorporated into the modern, stylish, minimal design.”
Jason says, “Feature led pendants, mood lighting, glass panelling, custom joinery and plants were important features in this complex, considered design. Brass accents, stunning led lighting and bespoke signage pulled the modern design together.”
Jason and the Total Fitouts Bay of Plenty team expertly managed the construct and build project, delivering bespoke touches, custom timber joinery, mood lighting and high-end finishes. The result another memorable office fit out for the local team of fit out professionals.
