High St Offices, Melbourne
Location: Melbourne, Australia
Principal Architect: Ivo Krivanek
Brief: The principal of Pomeroy Pacific and CKD shared a common love of the decorative arts of the 1920’s: the beautiful iron-work of Edgar Brandt, the Lalique and Daum glass-ware and the incomparable cabinetry work of Emile-Jacque Ruhlmann.
The Art Deco spirit inspired the design of all the built-in furniture, finished in cognac-coloured veneers with macassar inlays and faux – ebony accents.
The steel-and-glass entry doors and stained glass windows were patterned on typical Parisian Deco entry gates.
The Interior Design and Decoration was done in collaboration with Hendrix Allardyce a prominent Los Angeles Design Studio.
