Escala Newquay is an award-winning building developed by none other than MAB Corporation, one of McCormack’s valued clients. When McCormack was engaged to facilitate and deliver the fit-out for Prime Creative Media’s office, we were excited to work on an exceptional canvas of 1,200m2 and high ceilings.

Working with excellent partners from design through to details, all three floors commenced simultaneously, making this time-critical project possible in only 13 weeks of construction.

The grand double height ceilings and monolithic feature arch windows allowed an abundance of natural light on all three levels. The design aim was to keep the workspaces open and exposed to capitalise on these magnificent architectural elements, which naturally led to strategically placing all the built zones along the core.

Carefully considering the materiality used on the façade of the building, a soft green tile is seen on the external façade as a feature element. This formed the base of the design and material exploration. This green base was then contrasted with a vibrant, burnt orange in hopes to give the new space both a sense of continuity from its external surrounds and the impact Prime Creative were hoping for.
