Gray Puksand’s Sydney Studio
A heritage warehouse converted into an agile architecture and design studio
About the building
Leading Australian architecture and design practice Gray Puksand has converted a heritage warehouse in Sydney’s CBD into a creative studio. Gray Puksand’s design process combines virtual reality and artificial intelligence with hands-on tactile workshop experiences. The design of the studio reflects these new ways of designing and creating. Staff work anywhere depending on their creative mood and the best areas near windows are retained for innovation and collaboration. The entire studio is digitally enabled.
A series of internal arches reference how the building was once three buildings, now combined. Other reminders of an earlier era include a narrow horse cartway to the back courtyard now occupied by three popular small bars that enliven Sydney’s hidden ‘creative precinct’.
Gray Puksand invites the community, especially families and children, to experience virtual reality in architecture and the opportunity to create their own ‘mood boards’ with informal instruction by Gray Puksand designers.Built
