MICHAEL & HAMISH DESIGN STUDIO
Company directors and designers Michael Del Borrello and Hamish Cockburn had
a clear vision for the new Midland Brick Display Centre, and the results are stunning.
einvigorating a Midland Brick display
space that had been subject to various
updates and additions became an
exhilarating challenge for Michael &
Hamish Design Studio.
Located at the front entrance of Home Base
Subiaco, Midland Brick had worked hard for many
years to successfully service its broad clientele.
However, with an evolving market and higher
than ever customer expectations, Midland Brick
consulted design professionals Michael & Hamish
to renovate the Subiaco showroom. Together they
created a unique and progressive product display
space, which has become a source of inspiration
for both retail clients and design professionals.
Michael & Hamish expressed its unique
combination of interior and industrial design
skills to transform not only the space but the
process of selling bricks. The design approach
led to a separation in traditional product display
techniques and use of space. An emerging sense
of drama and theatre became a consistent design
thread throughout various iconic product displays.
The wave table exists as a dramatic suggestion
of contours and curves, an elegant reflection of
a paver’s ability to work with natural slopes and
curves. The future wall provides a space for pure
imagination; an expression of the future where
new ideas, colours and textures are explored with
a healthy disregard for the predictable.
An inviting and accessible boardroom in the
hub of the display centre represents one of the
main operational improvements. The new creative
workspace area is now the display centre’s engine
room where professional and retail clients engage
with centre staff and exchange new ideas. The
reception counter provides the ultimate expression
of a brick and pavers flexibility, where the working
surface combines pavers and tinted glass for
a stunning finish. The talented and knowledgeable
team at Midland Brick ensured the highest level of
construction detail throughout the build process.
Since opening the display centre in early 2015,
Midland Brick and Michael & Hamish continue to
work together to transform the space seasonally.
