Forrest Studio

Canberra, Australia

The Forrest Studio is a radical but sensitive addition to a 1939 heritage building. The new steel-framed, rusted steel and green glass structure integrates with the floor levels and aesthetic composition of the historic brick building, while remaining fully articulated to be read as a contemporary intervention. Extensive design modifications and renovations have been completed throughout the existing premises, converting the former residence into a vibrant inner city commercial premise.
