From the architect. Freipost is an international courier company, which purchased a non-descript 1950s warehouse on a Richmond backstreet.

The warehouse was converted into their office/warehouse by inserting a double curved central "street" of exposed stud framing with ply or glass infill panels as required for the offices and meeting rooms. Sweeping curves break the rigidity of the rectangular space, and the predominant ply suggests packing cases, appropriate for the nature of the business.

The signature Freipost red was used for highlights throughout, and the front facade was presented as a 3d company logo.
