Churches of Christ
Churches of Christ existing ofﬁ ces were scattered around Sydney and this project was the opportunity to consolidate the organisation into a central site. The overriding aim of the client was to create an inspiring, uplifting environment for its staff, clients and community partners. Custance developed a unique theme of ‘A Place in the Sun’ to embody the client’s aspirations into the ﬁ tout. This theme evolved from a biblical quote which had been utilised in Churches of Christ written material and which now features in the new reception. Custance has interpreted this theme through symbolic shafts of sunlight that commence on the ﬂoor, glass walls and ceiling in reception, and then refracts through the entire ﬁtout. These shafts are installed as coloured ﬁlm across glass doors and ofﬁce fronts and elements of this yellow reappear in fabrics and other feature elements. Casual break out spaces are interwoven between the open plan workstation layouts encouraging relaxed conversation and interaction. A multi-functional training and conference room is designed with client access to the lobby so it can be operated for after hours training courses. The central breakout space utilises warm, bright colour accents and another strategically placed quote on the wall to reinforce the central theme.
