Bringing a fresh meaning to effervescence

CAPI got a sparkly new home and we were there to spread the news

If the fizzy stuff saves your life from time to time, you’ll know no one does it better than CAPI. They’ve remained a family-owned, family-run business since they started out in 2012, and have been quietly dedicated to crafting all-natural carbonated drinks out of Kyneton since then. But there’s only so much growing you can do before you need to upgrade your office. And when it was time for them to expand we were there to help celebrate.

The new CAPI HQ utilises the cavernous square-footage of an old Telstra building, so there’s finally enough room for all the new ideas bubbling up at the company. Sydney-based interior designer Tamsin Johnson took care of the fit out, managing to somehow make it feel both opulent and understated with an emphasis on muted tones, stripped back plaster finishes, linen fabrics, bold sculpture and polished hardwood floors.

There’s a huge communal kitchen, and plenty of desks with enough light and space to flesh out big plans (including an entire floor dedicated to incubating a select few start-ups that CAPI-founder Pitzy Folk is taking under his wing). There’s also a Cellar Bar to remind everyone that the Earth is spinning and the weekend will always return.

We set in motion some key coverage for the opening including a piece in the Design Files and a half page feature in the Australian Financial Review about Pitzy and his entrepreneurial zeal.
