Seafolly AUSTRALIA - Intermain

 

This short film about the making of the new Seafolly Australia HQ in Sydney, explores the interplay between client, designer and builder through the collaborative process of design and construction.

Filmed over a period of six months, the film goes behind-the-scenes during the transformation of the former warehouse building, through the stages of design development, project management, construction, fabrication of interiors and bespoke joinery details and inside the finished interior.

Conversations with the team – Seafolly’s Director and CEO Anthony Halas, Head Designer Genelle Walkom and Executive Assistant Fiona Vougdis, and Intermain’s Senior Designer Katyana Molony and Senior Project Manager Alan McDonald – reveal the ideas and journey taken to develop a space that has also transformed the way Seafolly now works.

WWF AUSTRALIA - INTERMAIN

 

Intermain's first Green Star fitout completed for WWF-Australia was an opportunity for the NGO to continue their work in conservation and sustainable development throughout the region within their new Sydney headquarters. Reducing their ecological and operational footprint, enhancing workplace culture and introducing Biophilic design were central to the approach. We talked with WWF-Australia's Facility Manager, Natalie Roberts about the Green Star process, and in the accompanying film CEO Dermot O'Gorman discusses the importance of Green Star for WWF and takes us on a tour of their new offices. Intermain is proud to have received Highly Commended in the 2013 BPN Sustainability Awards for their work on WWF-Australia in the Office Fitout category.
