As part of the refined fit-out of the Datacom building, The Tile People supplied porcelain tiles from the Niro range for the bathroom walls, chosen in part for their reflective qualities. A semi-polished concrete-look tile was supplied for the bathroom floors.

The understated base finishes on the Datacom office floors were brought to life with feature elements, and an emphasis on colour and quality surfaces. Tile and stone supplied by The Tile People features in various areas of the welcoming interiors, as well as on the exterior of the modern building.

Director-owner of The Tile People Glenn Obery says his company supplied and installed stand-out tile solutions in various areas of the office fit-out.

"Working with Michael West from Architectus, we were required to provide unique, cost-effective options for the various tile and stone areas."

These included basalt pavers for the lobby and internal and external stairs, Tundra marble for the lobby feature wall, and floor and wall tiles for the bathrooms.

Tundra marble slabs supplied and installed by The Tile People create an eye-catching feature surface in the entry lobby.

For the lobby feature wall, the brief to The Tile People was to create impact, to contrast the basalt floor, and also to soften the look of the space. Basalt had been selected both here and for the external pavers for its durability and minimalist look.

"The lobby feature wall was challenging installation-wise, with the marble panels being 1650mm x 1000mm," says Obery. "This required a gantry to be set up to lift each solid piece into place."

For the bathroom walls and floors, The Tile People supplied porcelain tiles from the Niro range. This polished wall tile was specified to assist with light reflection. On the bathroom floors, a semi-polished tile in a concrete look was selected.

Basalt was also chosen for the building's stone cladding because its look suited the transition space between the precast panels and the glass wrapping all the way around the building at ground floor level.
