category: workplace

project name: Miller Harris Lawyers

location: McLeod Street, Cairns

size: 900sqm

completed: December 2015

After 15 years in their former offices this was time for Miller Harris to make a stronger statement to the Cairns market with their own building. Perhaps more importantly, the move provided the chance to create an office environment without compromise on an open rectangular footprint.

The directors had a desire to carry forward the successful styling of the reception & meeting spaces from the offices designed by Myriad in 2008 to ensure familiarity for their long term clients,.

The meeting spaces open off the reception & may be variously configured to suit client meetings & seminar sessions. Whilst the principals retain closed offices to the perimeter as required by their tasks, the central open allows easy communication and social cohesion for the team. The interior palette employs a strong element of blue referenced from the brand.
