It was important to Hayball Architects that their new Sydney studio utilised materiality to enhance the spatial design and portray their desire for a warm and inviting space via the use of a natural palette. Achieving this warmth has created a comfortable and engaging environment for staff, collaborators, clients and the wider community. The familiarity of natural materials including timber makes people feel at home. Havwoods engineered timber flooring immediately came to mind in the initial design stage due to the inviting residential feel they can achieve in a high traffic commercial environment. The impeccable quality of Europlank Villa Midi perfectly complemented the leather and plywood features also selected for the space.
The result is a functional yet collaborative space that encourages and stimulates imagination, creativity and the intermingling of diverse ideas. It’s a warm and welcoming environment that, in turn, makes it an engaging and inviting area for collaborators, clients and the wider community.
