This is an adaptive reuse of a brick and timber warehouse building for Coates Group, an Australian digital signage company. BMA initially assisted with the site selection, and then produced a detailed concept design for a ground floor showroom, and workspace facilities for the team of one hundred staff.

BMA collaborated closely with a US architecture firm who were responsible for local compliance, approvals and tendering of the works. We were also engaged in the selection of furniture and other interior elements.

Our design celebrates the generosity and raw grain of the existing brick and timber structure, with crisp new elements inserted in contrast. The ground level gallery showroom is linked to the office floor over by a dramatic double height space. The open office space on level one is characterised by task specific workstations, collaboration and breakout spaces, and executive offices.
