The Team Behind Repco Head Office, Rowville

This month our Design Insider theme is Workplace. Here we have an international project from BCFA member Astro.

Astro displays a commitment to British lighting design and a passion for quality and precision. Now entering their 20th year, Astro’s creative ethos has remained consistent throughout – that good design demands simplicity. We wanted to introduce you to the key contributors to their Repco project.

Automotive parts supplier Repco, based in Australia, recently completed their new head office in Rowville. Repco is the largest reseller and supplier in automotive parts and accessories aftermarket in Australia and New Zealand with almost 400 stores. Their new head office was designed by Australian based Artillery Interiors Architecture and MPA Projects.


Artillery Interior Architects is a global bespoke architecture and design studio based in London, Melbourne and the UAE. Their aim is to always exceed their client’s expectations.


MPA Projects is a contracting division with the expertise, experience and systems to deliver large scale projects. It has been dedicated to providing customer focused building contracting services since 1999 and specialises in interior fit-out and refurbishment.


As part of the project, the designers specified Astro’s Zeppo 400 Pendant light. The Zeppo has an understated style yet creates an eye-catching feature.

Zeppo is a strong lighting choice if you require simplicity and minimalism since the pendant light has a white glass diffuser which works well with most colour schemes.  It also delivers on flexibility with its subtle clear flex and metal suspension cable which can be height adjusted at the point of installation to work perfectly for a range of spaces.
