Goldsmith Fox PKF are a large accountancy firm located in Christchurch. Architecture Studio was engaged to design a high spec office fitout that incorporated eight Partners offices, open plan work spaces, meeting rooms, staff and breakout room, administration and reception. The company wanted to create a light inviting reception area which was a challenge for a space that did not receive any natural light. With a use of polished floor tiles, white high intensity lighting and feature walls, a space was created that was not only visually light but a pleasure to work in. A high gloss timber veneer reception counter was designed to provide a contrasting warmth to the otherwise stark environment.
