About the project
Young entrepreneurs Nik Mirkovic and Alex Tomic have built a business worth smiling about. HiSmile is an online teeth whitening company, based on the Gold Coast. They’re a youthful, energetic and socially savvy company who know the importance of building brands people can connect to. To support their plans for even growth, they’ve moved their team of 30 to a new corporate office – and they chose Austratus to help create a space that says: HiSmile.
The Austratus Difference
The HiSmile team and their builder and architect had a very clear vision of what they wanted to achieve: a stylish common area that made staff feel relaxed, yet still looked professional and high end.
Even though the space is not a shopfront, it was essential that every finish reflected the HiSmile attention to detail and looked beautifully modern – reflecting the team vibe and culture. And of course, value for money and an easy and fast installation process were vital.
Austratus fitted the bill in every way. Working with the clients, we selected the flat profile in Hemlock. It’s a choice that covers more space with less, yet still adds an amazing, premium finish to any office space. The timber panelling offers all the benefits you could expect: premium acoustic and thermal protection in a shared, busy office on the Gold Coast.
With the relaxed coastal setting and nature of the product we feel the chosen Cove White finish was the perfect choice – giving a light and beachy feel that matches the energetic culture at HiSmile.
The Austratus Flat Profile is your choice for covering more space with less timber, and creating a classically modern architectural style. The flat, square shape creates beautiful lines and shadows and allows the true beauty of timber to shine through. A completely versatile product, you can choose to create a moody dramatic finish, or a light and airy one with our large range of prefinish colours.

It needed to be stylish and help put a face on the HiSmile brand, while still being cost effective. Austratus met all our needs easily.
