Evenglide Showroom

Status Completed Location Blackburn / Victoria / Australia Photography Ben Hosking

The brief for this project revolved around the visual transformation of an existing building in an effort to attract greater attention to the new business housed within. The notion of movement around the building was the key generator for this new exterior. A facade which is static yet highly transformative depending on the position of the viewer, was developed.

Utilising timber battens, which are painted on their side faces, the building transforms it’s colour tone as pedestrians move around it. The envelope, although static, appears to shift from timber to a coloured surface as one circles the building, revealing the coloured sides.

Interiors were fitted out for a showroom below, an office above and a new roof deck area for staff.
