“With Paramount, we wanted to achieve a decidedly modern space that merged seamlessly with the existing heritage-listed joinery of the building,” says Boris Tosic, head of high end office fit-out specialists, Elan Construct.

Warm wood panelling in American Cherry and Oak envelop the offices’ curved walls, creating an effect both contemporary and retro, a throwback to timber wall finishes made popular in corporate offices during the Mid Century Modern era.

Mirrored cabinetry and gold pendant lighting add a further dimension of glamour to the interiors, which are furnished with Walter Knoll and Eames. A curated selection of artwork from the Tosic’s personal collection adorns the space, by notable Australian artists Ben Quilty and Del Kathryn Barton.

“The hand-crafted solution relies on traditional joinery and artisan skills and honours the building’s heritage, while exploring finely-honed design and functionality,” adds Boris.

Practically all built elements of the space were crafted exclusively for the Paramount office design, resulting in a tailored, highly bespoke workspace fitout, exuding Mad Men style luxury.
