Meeting the demands of modern working life, Melbourne-based interior architecture practice, Studio Tate re-designed the headquarters of property-developer PDG. With the objective of creating an office that looks more like a home, the concept embodies the subtle sophistication of a tailored suit – made to fit an individual’s exact proportions using the finest fabrics, with every last detail considered, from the hand-stictching to the button selection.
Paying tribute to PDG’s emphasis on high quality projects and lasting relationships, 450 m2 of BOLON Graphic Texture Black was selected to add to the sophisticated mix of textured materials.
As a property developer that is committed to the highest standards of construction, PDG’s new headquarters now accurately reflects the company’s values and delivers a workplace design that plays a positive role in the well-being of employees, whilst improving productivity. Designed with intelligence and finished with flair, this project by Studio Tate is an undeniable contender for Emerging Designer IDEA 2017.

Hot Black Interiors
Cancer Council, Melbourne
New premises for the Cancer Council in Melbourne offered an opportunity for interior architects, Hot Black to cater for the multi-disciplined workforce to come together as a cohesive entity. The new building offers six floors reconfigured into open plan workstation areas, offices, meeting rooms, breakout spaces, hospitality and rest amenities for the 400 employees and volunteers.
The interior design is simple and effective. The colour palette utilises the Cancer Council’s signature daffodil yellow and adds sobriety with the use of greys and blacks. The alternative use of materials was of great focus with BOLON textured flooring from the Botanic collection used in the communal meeting areas. The result, a perfectly executed project to meet the needs of a diverse workforce.
