Technē Architecture + Interior Design Studio

Architect: Technē

City of Melbourne | C65

Technē Architecture + Interior Design’s new Rathdowne Street office signifies a new era. The move from Hardware Lane reflects strong growth for the award-winning practice, which has recently completed notable projects including Garden State Hotel, Rooftop Bar and Cinema and Brunetti Flinders Lane. Motivated by the opportunity to design a workplace that clearly reflects Technē’s design and practice philosophies, staff members at all levels were able to contribute to the design process by completing multiple office questionnaires that explored their requirements for the ideal working environment. The result of this highly collaborative approach is an office that is an exemplar of workplace design, tailored to the practice’s specific requirements. The ethos underpinning this project is best represented in the creation of spaces and details that support the teamwork and creativity that characterises Technē’s philosophy. The process of ‘making’ is also centrally positioned, with the materials library and substantial model-making workshop holding pride of place. The reception area draws on Technē’s experience shaping Melbourne’s hospitality design scene, by creating an immediately disarming bar-like feel. Both functional and sophisticated, Technē’s Rathdowne Street office acts as the catalyst for change as the practice looks towards future growth. Bespoke, bold and confident, Technē is housing a bright new future.
