McBRIDE DAVENPORT JAMES

These may not be typical lawyers’ offices. Situated in Blair Street, this three storey masonry building required strengthening to bring it in line with earthquake safety standards. Our philosophy for this penthouse fitout was to allow the structure to be on display, resulting in a robust warehouse feel with high sloping ceilings, natural light flooding in through overhead skylights, timber trusses and steel strengthening braces left exposed. These elements are complimented by the insertion of glass and plywood partitions, raw sisal carpet, and splashes of colour.
