Geoscience Australia

Based around the concept of striations in rock form and the layering of rock formation, the design responds to the work conducted within the Geoscience Australia office accommodation. From textures of materials, to the use of the various Shaw Contract carpet tiles and they way that they have been meticulously planned, the layering of rock formation can be seen through the design. This ensures that there is a connection between user and their process and ensures that the workplace is a comfortable home away from home environment for now and into the future.
