Wide Bay Australia – Caloundra

After providing designs for a new “Concept Branch”, I was approached by building society Wide Bay Australia to incorporate some of those features into a tenancy in Stockland ┬áCaloundra shopping centre. The tenancy was previously another building society, and parts of the existing fitout were required to be retained in the new design. New joinery designs and a friendlier ‘open plan’ approach to the branch helps move Wide Bay Australia toward a new look and feel, which will be further developed over future branches. The schedule for design and construction was constrained, requiring special care to be taken in designing a fitout that could be constructed and installed rapidly. A “kit of parts” of modular furniture and joinery allows for flexibility and the ability to develop a design and branding language across a number of branches.
