University student transforms Central Plaza, Brisbane

Anna Carter

An innovative office design created by a QUT Design School student has become a reality in ISPT’s commercial tower Central Plaza in the heart of the Brisbane CBD.

Third year student Anna Carter won a design competition run by Central Plaza owner ISPT and office fit out specialists Schiavello. Her design has now come to life in the real world in this premium office tower.

ISPT’s General Manager Commercial Services Michelle McNally said Anna’s design has transformed a corporate office into a relaxed creative environment normally associated with a converted warehouse. “ISPT is proud to have facilitated this opportunity for Anna, a designer of the future to see her concept materialise, as we showcase her winning design ‘The Space In Between’. We might be in the business of property but what makes a space a place is when people come together to share, create and grow.

Central to the design is an innovative, free standing piece of furniture – a modular, plywood pod that hosts up to four desks or bench seating.
