GETTING S*(IT) DONE
Start Up Development Hub. Railway House, Sydney
Forget fads, gimmicks & tricks. Let’s get back to basics and get s*(IT) done.
Not just another ideation start-up hub, this is a place that gives start-ups the tangible tools to actually bring products to market.
Located within Railway House and with the associated heritage constraints - this space emulates all that is vibrant and exciting about the rawness of a start- up hub.
The honesty of a building envelope marked over time, the eclectic nature of furniture constrained by tight budgets and the inherent fluidity that is required to support teams forming, dispersing and regenerating.
Flooded with collaborative tools - both virtual and physical, co-creation is neither bound by geography nor time.
Collaborators: Intact, Hurley Palmer Flatt, Beastman

As part of a short-medium term strategy, the Skyrise floors at Westpac HQ were in need of refurbishment to provide parity of amenity - to other recently completed fully refurbished floors - and to overlay a compliance upgrade.
The Studio* worked closely with the WBC project team to explore feasibility modelling for this upgrade within tight budgetary constraints.
The Studio developed the concept design and provide detailed scoping documentation to the builders, MPA for further development and a staged implementation.
