The modern Unit B4 was designed to house Goodman’s South Sydney [1] team and to also operate as a showroom to exhibit work to clients visiting the office. The space has a long common desk with a sculptural wooden frame enclosing industrial luminaries and some meeting rooms, all of which help bring the shelters’ large scale to a more human one. MAKE designed the meeting rooms as simple plywood [2] boxes that offer an intimate space for making plans and talking privately when needed.

The polished concrete floors are low-maintenance, durable and affordable, and complete the raw unfinished look of the unique office [3] space. The furniture was also designed by MAKE and built by a local manufacturers reusing salvaged timber from Goodman’s other sites. The bathrooms offer a darker more graphic space with its reuse of 44 gallon drums [4] as sinks and storage bins, and a fantastic photo-wallpaper of Goodman’s other locations completes the look.
