Our Perth studio is located on Whadjuk Country. We acknowledge and respect the Whadjuk people as the original custodians of the land upon which we work.
The studio’s exterior – the 1930s façade of the former Commonwealth Bank Building – makes a striking statement, and what’s inside is even more impressive. The original soaring ceilings, structural columns and parquet floors have been retained, with the new workplace built around them.
As always, we’ve designed the studio to encourage collegiality and collaboration. It’s light and bright and open, with pin-up walls between the columns putting our work in progress on show. The grand entry space doubles as a gallery for events, client parties and team gatherings.
The studio is in a prime position in the city’s Murray Street pedestrian mall, so it’s easy to get to and from and there’s no shortage of opportunities for post-work R&R.
