The charming peeling paint on the exterior of Chalmers Church is in stark contrast to the crisp, functional space that the inside has become. Transformed by Graeme and Jodie Walker of Walker Designs, the fit-out is considered and full of fun, quirky details (including a sneaky astro-turf putting green – keep your eyes peeled), with the main work space bathed in colourful light filtering down from the stained-glass windows. Below the main space are a series of rooms dedicated to staff break-outs areas, meeting and training rooms, along with a hidden guest room!
