Located in the 1930’s heritage-listed Commonwealth Bank building, the new Perth studio is the latest HASSELL studio to be converted from a storied past into a collaborative and creative space for designers and clients.
It joins a host of other HASSELL studios around the world that were once places as diverse as a bread factory, motorcycle factory or traditional shophouse.
“As with our other projects and international studios, we have been careful to retain what is beautiful about this space while cultivating those qualities that inspire great design,” says HASSELL Director Peter Lee.
Among the guests was Deputy Lord Mayor of Perth James Limnios, CEO’s and senior representatives from a mix of senior and public and private companies.
After a Welcome to Country ceremony from Dr Richard Walley OAM, Western Australian Premier Colin Barnett spoke about the city defining projects HASSELL has helped to deliver, before declaring the studio officially open.
“The new Perth studio will continue to build on the success of city-shaping projects like Brookfield Place, one40william, and Fiona Stanley Hospital,” Peter said. “With Perth Stadium and Station underway, the HASSELL contribution to Western Australia is set to remain strong well into the future.”
