This dynamic space on Auckland’s North Shore is the ultimate in uber-practicality along with beautiful refined finishes. The brief included providing core functions for this office including a large open kitchen, meeting rooms and open plan desking. It also included a custom theatre space for presentations and conferences that Pie Funds host on site.

We had a large rectangular space to work with which came with great bones; a polished concrete floor, exposed open ceiling and modern toilets. From this starting point we developed a vision for how the spaces would be used that allowed for growth and the ever-changing ways in people work – including more break out spaces and collaborative zones.

Attention to detail in this space was the next consideration, with every element being finished immaculately. The combination of natural finishes – timber, metal and stone – is complemented with an ocean blue colour which “pops” adding mood and depth to the space.

The custom theatre space is adjacent to the large kitchen and client bar. All these spaces open up to one large area which is great for client functions and presentations.

The general office space is designed to have multiple meeting areas for flexibility and the opportunity for staff to collaborate, have client meetings, or even have quiet space. Given the large area of hard surfaces on the floor and ceilings the acoustics of any enclosed space was important. Dealing with this requirement was integrated early on in the design thinking.

Other features in the space include a large custom-built locker area, coffee station, large breakout areas and social spaces. Pie Funds has a vision to have this space grow and change with their needs, it needed to be engaging and dynamic for their team during the day and move swiftly into a conference space if required then a networking, social event space. The space has a beautiful feel to it and, above all, delivers on the brief functioning well for every type of occasion.
