Project Description

A delightful and complementary working studio to its adjacent mid-century modern home. The studio maintains its own discrete commercial vibe, which also fits seamlessly into the whole in the way it relates to its own toned-down exterior, and the complexity of the history of the overall site.

The interior scheme is lively and professional, using colour as both a taster of the work the studio produces, and to transform the constrained volume. In particular, the red cabinetry highlights and banded wall wainscoting work effectively to offset the constrained spatial dimensions.

Together with hidden storage, clever lighting solutions, and a hardworking floor plan, this workplace punches well above its weight.

This award recognises that this commercial interior is the crowning glory to a larger site-wide project to revitalise the mid-century modern residential gem. The judges also applaud the overall extent of work at this holistic level.
