Cecilia Architects Offices
The ground floor further accommodates the principal architect, books library, boardroom, printing area, kitchen, financial manager's office and lounge.
The upper level was converted to accommodate the drawing studio, reference library, printing area, bathroom and kitchen. Well designed cubicles provide privacy and an organized work space. The studio floor is an industrial rubber floor which is the most practical for the concentrated activities.
The use of colour and attention to detail with industrial elements lend a new image to a previously dull and outdated interior and exterior. Coloured glass panels were introduced and the industrial style enhanced with custom made cable tray light fittings and exposed air conditioning ducts. The existing slate floors were kept in the reception space and previously carpeted areas were replaced with timber floors.
The boardroom speaks construction with the photographic wall paper of a building in progress. The reception area is inviting and colourful with photographic displays of completed projects that portray the company's achievements.
Challenging factors were existing finishes and elements of a building that could only be partially upgraded. The rest of the building is only due for alterations and refurbishment at a later stage.
The daunting custom made entrance door and colourful columns signifies the strength and creativity of Cecilia Architects.
