Services: interior design and furnishings

Interior design for the Donald Gordon Conference Centre meshed new and renovated space together with sensitivity to provide a comfortable and state-of-the-art conference environment. Facilities include meeting, break-out, dining, pub and residence spaces for 80 guests. The centrepiece is the handsome 1841 Roselawn House, federally designated as a heritage building.

As a member of the design team lead by Griffiths Rankin Cook (grc) Architects, Carlyle Design Associates developed and documented the interior finishes schemes and the integrated furniture program. Furniture solutions creatively mixed existing, refurbished antiques with new items and the process was administered from planning and specifications through procurement to installation.
