FGB Office & Warehouse, Clarinda Rd, Oakleigh South

JDA Architects were asked to design a new warehouse and bespoke office to suit expanding needs of Felton Grimwade & Bosisto’s eucalyptus products business.

The office was an addition to their 1960s factory building and was constructed at first floor over the existing car park, with a new double height entry foyer and reception that signposts it as a signature headquarters for the company.

The use of natural and recycled timber that is noticeable throughout the interior and as an exterior facade treatment references the activities of FGB as Australia’s largest producer of eucalyptus oil and sets the building apart from the usual suburban offices lining the street.
