Working across a range of arts, cultural and residential projects, our work is focused on design that is contemporary, clean and simple, but rooted in a knowledge of craft and materiality. Our approach to projects is highly contextual, responding to the urban environment and informed by the surrounding landscape. We work closely with our clients to produce work that is responsive to individual requirements and specific locations. The tactile, intellectual and emotional aspects of our work are key concerns of the studio, whether the project is an art installation, an exhibition design, or a residential project.
Founded by directors Simon Rochowski, Julin Ang and Joseph Byrne, the practice draws on their experience of working with a wide range of studios, clients and cultural institutions both in Australia and overseas. The studio approaches all its work using a common set of skills and values, to encourage interaction and reduce boundaries between different disciplines. Our projects are undertaken in a spirit of collaboration and curiosity, and through a process of experimentation we seek to create projects that are distinctive and bespoke.
