101 Moray Street

Location

101 Moray Street will be the new benchmark of traditional commercial office space. Best known for the Art Series Hotels, The Deague Group’s vision for this South Melbourne project reflects a 5-star hotel’s features. Showcasing seven levels of premium commercial office space for lease, co-working facilities, a gourmet restaurant, and so much more. Excited to be part of this large-scale project, the Yarra Valley Commercial team recently completed stage one interior fit-out components that included a stunning entrance and foyer area as well as extensive end of trip and bathroom facilities.

Design

First impressions never have a second chance, and the entrance to 101 Moray Street doesn’t need one.  As visitors enter, they are welcomed by open spaces, quality features, and stylish detail throughout. The striking timber grain bulkhead against the colourblack glass wall and ceiling promises luxury. The digital screen, LED perimeter lighting, and the abundant space with a view-through to curved lines and rounded forms within the foyer offers a contemporary perspective of a traditional commercial space.

Contemporary luxury extends to the end-of-trip and bathroom facilities.  A stylish kitchenette can be found just outside the spacious meeting area. The bathrooms boast porcelain vanity units held above the ground in a black steel powder coated frame.  Each unit is fitted with ample power points and LED lighting along the baseline.  Along with all of the bespoke joinery, the cleverly designed LED backlit mirrors were crafted by the talented team in the YVC factory.

From the Project Team

A craftsman at heart, project manager John Lovelock was quick to note the curved feature joinery in the foyer as his project highlight commenting “There was a lot of time spent in the factory getting this timber feature absolutely perfect.” John continues “It was time well spent as the onsite installation was a dream!”

Grateful to be working through COVID-19, the restrictions that came with the pandemic were the biggest challenge.  Committed to the time-frame yet constrained by the number of people onsite, social distancing, and the number of people required to get the job done certainly put the team to the test. True to form their experience and ability to think outside the square coupled with the teams’ commitment to delivering excellence meant the project was completed honouring the original time-frame, leaving stakeholders delighted with outcome.
