The Complex Made Simple
Élan is a specialist building company based in Sydney with over 25 years and more than 250,000sqm worth of building experience. Our fitout division focuses on both commercial and residential projects, including office refurbishments, hospitality, retail, medical, and private residences. Our custom furniture division excels in prototyping, crafting commissioned pieces and complete suites of signature ranges through to large-scale production for leading international design companies. Every project challenges and excites us, from a single design unit to a high-profile commercial development.
Élan values a collaborative approach with architects and designers to ensure that preliminary sketches through to complex technical details are realised to completion without compromising design and aesthetic intent. This often includes a component of research, development and prototyping to test and resolve big picture and fine grain details of a build upfront, yielding enormous time and cost savings for clients.
“Élan’s strength is its ability to move between hand-crafted or machine tasks as required. Ancient joinery techniques and high tech machining are given equal weight. Ultimately they want to make things that have beauty and longevity.”
— David Whittaker, Senior Associate, Hassell
Élan marries the beauty of the hand-made and the precision of the machine-made to create exceptional spaces and furniture. Blurring the line between tradition and technology, we merge bespoke joinery techniques with CNC machinery to execute meticulous products and builds in new commercially scalable ways. Our signature touch is that of hand-crafted integrity.
"Boris has a wealth of experience, a detailed understanding of all facets of the design/build process and an amazing dexterity of thinking which are invaluable when problems arise. The next best thing to having a magician in the project team.”
— John Cullen, Principal, Cullen Feng
