Tongue is an exciting "ideas agency" with Jonathan Pease at the helm. Siren was contracted to design an office that would represent Tongue's culture, client needs and vision. The dilapidated heritage building was upgraded with new timber floors and cleaned up for exposed brick walls and ceilings.
This envelope was the ideal setting for the open planning and quirky design. Spread over 3 floors there are a number of contrasting environments have been created to inspire the staff, and represent their energetic working processes.
From the English phone box entry door leading to the head teacher inspired reception and waiting area, up the birdcage staircase to the enormous completely white presentation room.
The first and second floors include an outdoor terrace with a fully operational bar alongside a series of custom designed workstations. The top floor has been finished with the black timer floors and vintage furniture for that "found magic" this area is used for ideas hunting and gathering.
Siren also re-designed the bathrooms to incorporate Tongues eccentric personality; the males were designed to represent the inside of a cardboard box! The complete fit-out was designed on an incredibly small budget and short timeframe, making the out-come a complete success.
