Stunning views of Perth’s Swan River and Kings
Park are visible from two sides of this executive
boardroom. The feature timber ceiling adds
warmth and helps humanise the scale of the space.
esigned by SPH Interiors and
constructed by Northerly Group,
the Sumitomo Perth office fitout is a
first-class tenancy that showcases
spectacular views of Kings Park, the Swan River
and the foothills beyond.
The spatial limitations of the narrow tenancy
meant the entire workspace (not just the standard
front-of-house areas like the meeting rooms
and reception) was on display. ‘Wow’ factor was
important, as the space facilitated high-powered
meetings to negotiate large industrial contracts.
Due to the open-plan nature of the space,
SPH implemented acoustic treatment with
tactile 3D-profiled wall tiles. These tiles, with
carpet and workstation screens, act as sound-
soaking elements to minimise reverberation.
Frameless glazing and unobtrusive graphics
work together to minimise the division of
workspaces and complement the base building
facade, creating an open and expansive ambience
to the tenancy.
Rich material tones of recycled timber flooring,
wall and ceiling battening create warmth in
contrast to the otherwise neutral palette.
Monolithic column and beam structures
provide relief from the linearity of the space
whilst framing the light-filled external views.

Metallic themes are drawn from the client’s main
product line (high-grade steel) and embodied in the
coppery Amtico flooring, the reflective Florence
Broadhurst and the metal mosaic splashback.
