In keeping with Carhartt’s company profile, the space was kept modern with simple raw materials, and polished with designer lighting, furniture and fittings, the overall effect is to create an unconventional office with a mix of old and new elements making it a fun place to work!
The office and showroom is divided by a white brick tiled wall with an oak sliding door made from timber flooring. The floor is natural cement rendered, custom furniture made in recycled timber panels from boat yards in Thailand creates an interesting pattern for the dividers and partitions.

The showroom walls are also finished in white bricks with oak timber shelves and built-in LED lighting cantilevered over the clothes racks made from metal pipe fittings, center meeting table is custom made from oak timber flooring, in contrast to the concrete floor which gives a warmer feeling to the showroom. All interior lighting is controlled by Lutron electronic dimming systems.
