Paramount by The Office Space is a co-working environment in Sydney that has been given a touch of luxury by the creative team at Woods Bagot.
Originally the Australian head office and distribution centre of Paramount Pictures, the 1940s building in Surry Hills has been given a new lease of life in recent years. It stands in a prominent location on a corner plot and the Woods Bagot team has been responsible for transforming the upper ground level into an elegant environment for working and business activities.
The curved outline of the heritage building's facade is celebrated within the interior in the contours of the individual business suites, which are semi-enclosed for acoustic privacy. With features aiming to foster and support a creative atmosphere between tenants, the working experience is heightened in the calm ambience of the wood-lined interior. The design accentuates the original art deco features, whilst adding contemporary aspects such as a curated art collection, giving each suite a sense of individuality and an expression of personality.
