Fit out company TDA Interiors has completed work on the $1.5 million fit out of Warner Music’s head office in Crows Nest and the $400,000 Austereo fit out at World Square in Sydney, two music projects that continue TDA’s recent portfolio of work in the industry. TDA finished a $1.5 million fit out for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation Regional Station in Wollongong earlier this year.
“TDA has been appointed to a number of projects within the music industry over the last 18 months and it’s given us a great chance to build on our expertise and experience in delivering quality fit outs within a growing sector,” said Andrew Holder, managing director of TDA Interiors.
TDA refurbished Warner Music’s 30-year-old interior to better reflect changes in the music industry, which has shifted from CD distribution to file use. This meant configuring the layout with a central music zone surrounded by an open plan and interactive fit out including a performance stage and staff relaxation room for 85 employees.
Austereo’s 600-square-metre fit out encompassed renovations across four levels due to expansion of its Sydney office. The renovations featured 30 workstations, a breakout area (pictured) and an upgrade of its radio and television studios that included installation of an infinity wall to control sound and acoustics, blacked-out air conditioning and acoustic seals on doors.
“When studios are refurbished there’s always great emphasis on creating an original or really distinct fit out while still ensuring user needs are met, said Holder. “It’s always a great opportunity for us try something different and push the envelope a little further each time.”
