Respecting the existing heritage features required attention to detail, spatial planning and the design at large.

An existing client, The Thomas Group decided to appoint the greater group to design and build their latest Diamond Exchange Sydney showroom. Forming part of this decision was the recent success of Diamond Exchange Melbourne, the first Diamond Exchange showroom from 2017.

From concept development though to delivery, this adaptive re-use project was a comprehensive fit-out located on level 5 of The Georges Building, one of Sydney’s oldest and most prestigious heritage buildings. A combination of existing heritage features mixed with fine joinery detailing and lighting accents work together as the ultimate setting for high quality diamonds and jewellery.
