Tribe was briefed to design the headquarters for graphic design practice, Eskimo Design. Located on the first floor of a warehouse building in Surry Hills, the original space featured large tubular volume, regular skylights and beautiful steel framed windows.
Tribe’s design saw the insertion of an array of pods, housing back of house programme, meeting rooms and amenities. This deceptively simple organisational diagram belies the complexity in services design and sensitivities in the brief budget. Warmth is added through a large sliding plywood doors, featuring a graphic by a staff member who won an in house-design competition. A restrained palette is used throughout, enabling the practice to evolve as they continue working and creating within it.
