The warmth of the timber welcomes the ERA Planning & Enviroments team to its new office - RenovationOnWeb
A commercial space in downtown Hobart, Tasmania, is being converted into ERA Planning & Environments' warm and inviting office, where local oak gives the space warmth, light and softness
The exterior of the office is brick and shields the building within its vibrant city context. As you enter the interior, however, you are immediately enveloped by the warmth of the wood that lends character to the rest of the space. Cumulus designs a wood core that runs through the heart of the office, with slats that open to spaces that are dedicated to meeting or service rooms
Functionality was paramount throughout the design phase of the ERA Planning & Environments office: an open space where it was possible to carve out spaces for meeting rooms, services and relaxation. The spaces offer versatility, comfort and all the necessary technological requirements
The 180 square meters of available space was designed with all of the client's needs in mind, using materials that would brighten and warm the space at the same time. The material par excellence of the project was the Tasmanian oak wood, able to give warmth, light and smoothness to a small space.
