In the heart of Brisbane CBD, a historic caretaker's cottage underwent a transformation that was nothing short of extraordinary. At Outkast, we don't just design spaces; we craft experiences. In this full-floor renovation, we had the unique opportunity to blend the old with the new, preserving the heritage structure while infusing it with modern design elements. The result? A space that speaks volumes, both of its storied past and its promising future.

The project was expansive, encompassing a communal building lounge, two speculative suites, and end-of-trip facilities. Each element was designed with meticulous attention to detail, but what truly set this space apart were the heritage features that became the focal points of the design. Rather than overshadowing the cottage's original charm, we chose to celebrate it, making it the centerpiece around which modern amenities and design flourished.

At Outkast, we specialise in creating workspaces that are not just visually appealing but also functional and productive. It's a philosophy that has proven to be incredibly effective, as evidenced by the immediate interest these particular spec suites garnered. New tenants were quick to commit, allowing the landlord to significantly reduce the building's vacancy rate.

In today's competitive real estate market, a well-designed space can be the differentiating factor that turns potential interest into a signed lease. This project serves as a testament to the power of thoughtful design—where heritage meets modernity, and functionality meets inspiration.

So, whether you're looking to revamp an old space or create something entirely new, remember that with Outkast, you're not just getting a design; you're getting an experience, one that resonates with both history and possibility.
