SUBURB/LOCATION:Milton, Brisbane

Following on from our successful speculative fitout for two tenancies on Level 1, at 2  Gardner Close Milton, our clients engaged RAW Commercial Projects to complete the next phase of the refurbishment for existing office space.


Stage 2 involved creating a complimentary, yet distinctive speculative fitout for an office space of 695m2. Our clients wanted to provide potential tenants with greater choice in selecting an office that was a good fit for their culture and physical needs.

Our talented and skilled Interior Designer, Henna Viikari rose to the challenge.  She was able to develop a design to accommodate a comfortable open plan for a high number of people and workstations in the space.  Within the floorplan, Henna incorporated several breakout areas and quiet rooms.


The space was designed and built to evoke a warm and vibrant working environment with a relaxed casual vibe. Earth tones of yellow, muted oranges and timber were used throughout the fitout to create a mellow look and feel.  This feeling was highlighted through the stunning landscape mural in the open breakout areas next to the reception. The mural is both fun and youthful.  Ideal for up-and-coming businesses looking to appeal to a younger workforce and clientele.

The use of striking geometric vinyl flooring with yellow and grey tones created further impact and provided connectivity between the meeting rooms, boardroom, and kitchen.

As a contrast to the earthy tones, we used black chairs in the meeting rooms, kitchen and breakout areas. This use of contrasting colour was carried through to the lighting solution. Henna incorporated black and rattan feature lighting, along with fun wall lights to define spaces, and to draw people into the meeting and breakout areas.  Through smart and sophisticated design choices, we created the ideal space to meet our client’s goal.


The spectacular design came to life, through the competent management and execution by our Building team.  We expertly managed the demolition and construction of the speculative fitout in line with the design brief and budget.  Our team refurbished the space to include:

  • Kitchen and staff break out areas
  • Boardroom and meeting rooms
  • Executive offices
  • Supply of electrical works and lighting
  • Painting throughout the space including feature mural
  • Installation of flooring
  • Styling and furniture placement

This 695m2 fitout includes features such as:

  • Outback landscape wall mural with earthy tones
  • Timber cabinetry for kitchen
  • Geometric vinyl flooring
  • Downlights at the front of house and breakout areas
  • Feature lighting throughout
  • Timber wall divider
  • Reception counter
  • All loose and fixed furniture including reception chairs, coffee tables, work chairs, stools, workstations, dining tables and chairs

Overall, this speculative fitout exudes warmth and youthfulness. Its bright and casual appeal will attract tenants with a millennial workforce.
