The company purposefully creates premium designer amenities that are meaningful and reflect a hotels personality, surrounding and taste ensuring and unforgettable user experience.

Design resolution:

In 2013, the Vanity Group appointed Shakeup Architecture to design a brand-new headquarters at Meeks Road, Marrickville. This adaptive reuse project involved the conversion of an old factory building to accommodate the new facilities.

A productive office layout has been proposed with plants incorporated to generate a healthy working environment. The building entry features a double storey height space and a modern linear stair. Recycled materials and smart use of colours are found throughout the project.
