The building, located in Abbotsford, Australia, also contains a colorful history. It served as a manufacturing venue beginning in the 1940s. "We set out to create a unique, functional space which retains its original industrial charm, utilizing the existing architectural features as a foundation," the architects said. The project also aims to strengthen the connection between Studio 103 and their building partners, McCormack Property Services, who reside in the neighboring building. The interiors boasts minimalist arrangements and industrial designs. The exposed timber trusses and industrial shelving also add to the personality of the space. The concrete flooring, black-framed windows and the original red brick wall create a powerful contrast. The new studio accommodates a series of working offices. They're split by a glass meeting room, an open kitchen and plenty of greenery. The design studio also includes a gym! “The build was a mutual effort between Studio 103 and McCormack Property Services to establish a foothold at the pinnacle of design and construction. Together, we have repurposed a tired warehouse and transformed it into a sleek, sophisticated workspace for the purpose of collaboration and business growth.,” the design team added.
