Our custom joinery and design process
Howgroup design R&D team put to the test again to design and build a new reception desk to “fit the interior layout.
Located @727 Collins st, AECOM’s Melbourne Corporate HQ required a custom design to enhance the feel and traffic flow of a busy entry.
An impressive greeting and sign-in point with a fully equipped work point with concealed cable management in the walls, stunning white Carrara marble tile fingers with veneer on the top wrap around the curved walls fitting like a glove. Made in 3 sections and reconstructed on site. A stunning and impactful design result.
Custom Examples: Reception
The collaboration between Howgroup R&D with an exclusive high-end private designer continued to design and build a stunning reception desk. Multiple drawings were produced to arrive at a final build scenario.
Doubling as a greeting point and a fully equipped dual work point with concealed cable management in the walls, stunning white Carrara marble fingers with veneer on the top wrap around the curved walls fitting like a glove. Made in 3 sections and first constructed in our workshop to fine-tune before delivery and then craned into the building to sit under a custom light to enhance each other.

Shared spaces are undergoing a revolution. The way we understand work, the explosion of technology, and even the new ways we have of interacting with each other lead us to call for new spaces.
Welcoming spaces and open concept rooms where you can break out of the routine and find a place to concentrate. The secret lies in creating different areas, settings, and areas in a multipurpose space that provide value to the user so that they choose our space not just for having a coffee or a drink in.
