Bennett & Philp Lawyers new workplace reflects their market position as a legal firm who understand the real world. The tenancy is designed to provide a contemporary, welcoming, yet understated workplace that focuses on staff wellbeing, promotes teamwork, and reinforces the firm’s strong culture.

Following a traditional legal accommodation model with a focus on optimising natural light, Bennett & Philp’s new home offers an abundance of relaxed and inviting client facing facilities as well as flexible open work areas for support staff.  The warm and subdued finishes palette has been applied using natural and earthy tones and is complemented by a collection of client selected artwork on display throughout the tenancy. The Bennett & Philp relocation project in Brisbane is a great example of how early engagement can foster stronger relationships and encourage comfortable collaboration, ensuring smooth delivery and a superb final product.


A truly collaborative project.  A big thank you to Nicole Jacobs, Lance Pollard, and Andrew Lambros from Bennett & Philp for entrusting us with your project; Mark McGowan and John Healy at IA Design for your inspirational design; Finbar McLaughlin and Craig Kavanagh at Evolved Engineering for your constant support right from the start, Brett Warner and James Court from Optima Glazing for your amazing product knowledge, Lee Wood and Ruben Penilo at Spoke Joinery for your unwavering standards of finish, and of course Aldion Cirongu, Matt Grant, and Tim Volkman the stellar Quadric project team the made it all happen.  When we pulled this team together, we didn’t even have a space to build, just deadline.  Multiple spaceplans on multiple sites,  services considerations at each site,  unlimited revisions of cost plans, furniture and fittings selections, and constant refinement of design to suit site conditions; are all expected deliverables for an ECI contractor these days.  We enjoyed every minute.
