Alannah Hill (born in 1963) is an Australian fashion designer who is well known for her “girly chic” fashion label and boutique chain. Today I’d like to share the glimpse of the main office interior design of Alannah Hill operation.
This once run down Melbourne warehouse has been transformed into the dreamy world of a fashion label Alannah Hill by a very talented architect David Hicks. The shell of the warehouse had to be structurally upgraded, but the feel of the old building has been retained.
The designer brought together the incredible combination of the old industrial structure – the ceiling trusses, exposed brickwork and giant barn doors – with the softness and fun of the interior furnishings.
These large slate blue velvet armchairs are shaped as eggs go really well with the light weight chandeliers up above. Tall glass wall runs along the wall used by the models, which also makes the space even larger.
Not only this project is green by reusing an old building, it’s also fun and inspiring by the playfulness of the overall experience. Who would not be happy to go to work in an office like this one?
