The Inner Workings: Case Meallin Offices by Mim Design

Rebranding from the inside out, Case Meallin called on Mim Design to carefully create a space that reflects the inner workings of the company’s mind.

As a company remodels, it is imperative that the space in which it operates compliments their philosophy. Mim have demonstrated a clear understanding of their client’s internal objective and translated it into a calm, sophisticated and professional environment in Case's new Melbourne digs. Founded on the practice of holistic, interpretative skills, Mim strive to bring the company’s personality to the forefront of the design.

Incorporating Case Meallin’s rebranded color scheme of indigos and blues with their focus on strong client relationships, Mim’s office design perfectly embodies the company’s present and is generously conscientious of their future.

From the point of entrance, the honed Vermont white granite reception desk embodies soothing blues and the American Oak solid timber slats let natural light filter through; invite new clients and encourage employees with a bright yet relaxing environment. Smooth architectural lines and careful planning create fluidity throughout the space promoting flow of thought and creative energy.

Drawing inspiration from the rebranded color scheme, Mim have set a range of blues from flooring to subtle furniture detail to bold geometric shapes against a serene, natural palette of charcoal and white. Contrasting professional tones with creative flair, the office is visually stimulating while promoting focus and efficiency.

The flow of the space is cleverly designed to feel open while providing privacy and seclusion where necessary. Using floor to ceiling natural oak timber screens, an abundance of light and creative, innovative planning, Mim have managed to make this 500sqm space feel much larger than it is. Consistent in color, aesthetic, and loyalty to the client, Mim’s design exudes the company’s ethos as well as their own proficiency in the creation of unique, efficient spaces.
