aving its own offices located on Main
Street in Osborne Park, the team
at Michael Little Designs recognised
the importance of creating a unique
building for this relatively young accounting firm.
Producing a modern take on a simple structure,
the building is now an attractive focal point at the
head of the precinct strip, and a colour concept
that reflects the tenants’ corporate branding.
The western orientation of the site is the main
direction of viewing from within the office, which
meant heavy screening was required to the glazing
that was facing this solar aspect. A custom screen
was also designed and developed to suit the
curved corners of the windows, while at the same
time emphasising the simplicity of the design.
While the custom aluminium commercial
framing and screens were a challenge for the
builder, Prada Developments, it was nothing
in comparison to the curved sections needed
for the aluminium cladding.
The challenge of concealed supports for
the screens and awnings was demanding during
the design process, however the desired
outcome was achieved.
The screens work extremely well to block the
harsh mid-afternoon sun and screen the late
afternoon sun from full glare.
Internally, the brief was to keep things simple
with spaces varying in size. Smaller areas around
the largest unit were placed around a central
core, providing colleagues with a productive
yet interactive working environment.
