Shriro Australia has moved into new state-of-the-art headquarters at Chatswood in Sydney’s lower north shore.
The former Kingsgrove showroom, office and warehouse was merged with existing capacity at the large-scale warehouse in Chullora NSW, allowing the HQ to relocate to a new location that could attract leading talent, provide ample public transport options, and enable a flexible working environment.
Shriro partnered with award-winning architectural and design firm, Gray Puksand, challenging them with a brief to rethink collaboration spaces and provide inspirational interior design to showcase Omega, Blanco, Everdure, Everdure by Heston Blumenthal, Robinhood, Omega Altise and Casio.
Visitors are welcomed into the experience centre, which has been described by the company as “a cross between designer kitchen and high-end bar”, with timber and matte black joinery, powder coated steel ceilings, milled steel accents and stone benchtops.
Visitors are encouraged to touch and feel products with any products not on display presented on large LED screens. The area can also be configured as an event space for after hours.
The workspaces for staff are contemporary and flexible, featuring the latest technology including high-definition TV screens for online meetings, touch screen meeting room booking platforms and high-speed internet. There is also an internal café zone utilising the brand’s own appliances.
Shriro Australia CEO, Tim Hargreaves said the opening of this showroom marks a new direction in the company’s 38-year history.
“Chatswood was our first home, so it is fitting to return here. The area is dynamic and flourishing, a perfect fit for our company,” he said.
“The office has been buzzing with our employees enjoying their new surrounds and we look forward to leveraging the benefits of this space for many years to come. I can’t wait for our valued trade partners and suppliers to experience this world class office space.”
The new office address is Level 7, 67 Albert Avenue, Chatswood, NSW. All existing contact details, including phone numbers and email addresses remain unchanged.
