Ray White Ellerslie:
Being one of New Zealand’s top real estate companies Ray White prides itself on working collaboratively with clients and developing strong relationships. Outline Design was tasked to provide a design solution that reflects the company’s brand values by transforming their space into a well-functioning office and impressive hosting space.
The revised floor plan provided four key functions: Welcome, Connect, Focus and Support.
The welcome space was designed to provide a strong identity, wayfinding and welcoming feel. The captivating centrepiece of the reception area is a backlit Ray White sign, making a bold first impression and anchoring the space.
Open, flexible spaces were introduced for staff to connect and collaborate with clients and each other. The designed event space provides an impressive multi-use space to host auctions and events on-site.
Offices and quiet rooms provide space to focus and carry out more sensitive conversations. The enclosed room walls were also angled and glazed to help filter natural light into the open collaborative spaces.
The considered finishes palette for the space integrates neutral, textured warm tones that hero the Ray White Brand and colours. Layering design features including crittal joinery, greenery and feature lighting help to elevate the neutral palette and create a dynamic, sophisticated space.
