In the heritage-listed Metcalfe Bond Store on Sydney harbour, the Ansarada Office fitout by Those Architects is conceived as a series of installations including a gymnasium and view access for all.
In keeping with their client’s brand values, Those Architects conceived a space where everything would be transparent, open and flexible, and (to comply with heritage regulations) non-invasive to the building.
“Surfaces have been given material complexity to soften the ‘commercial’ feeling of the space integrating soft woven fabrics, rich full grain leathers and bespoke carpets. These work well paired with the hard surfaces of the existing timber and masonry interior. We call the result ‘luxe minimalism’, which not only pairs with Ansarada’s personality and brand values of sophistication, simplicity and authenticity, but also with our own design philosophies.” Ben Mitchell, Those Architects.
