Set in the historic downtown area of Nassau, New Providence is the main office of HG Christie Ltd. The 100+ year-old building keeps the charm of traditionally built Bahamian style homes, but we decided it was time to refresh our office.
Well-known interior designer Sarah Gardner, Owner of Island Nest, met with our team to create a plan for an open and airy office, “We want to provide a friendly and comfortable atmosphere” John Christie, President of HG Christie remarked.
With older buildings, the main concern is making sure it’s not stuffy. Gardner used materials and patterns that showcases a lively neutral colour palette and light-filled space.
Designed for efficiency and a collaborative workspace, Gardner went to work creating this bright open-plan office to create a calming ambience. The design includes a sound-proof booth for a private workspace, resolving the noise and privacy issue of the open-plan office.
“I like to call this process refresh, renew and if necessary” Gardner states “Rebuild.”
