QE II National Trust is a not for profit organisation that works with private landowners to protect the natural environment of New Zealand. A task that requires a dedicated team of professionals who deserve a great working environment considering the legacy they are helping to preserve.
Armed with a very small budget, CCM was tasked with enhancing their existing offices. 1980s fitout with very few frills: no air conditioning, plaster tiles, low ceiling and lighting that is very much a feature of tired offices.
Through the judicious use of some architectural design elements the environment has been transformed. New up-lighting, colour, graphics, floor finishes, coordinated second hand furniture and some simple changes in floor planning has entirely changed the space. The green grass carpet tiles, animated lights and native birds all sing in coordination to provide a happy work environment that the client has been proud to say cost them "no more than an old fence post".
