Vivid Sydney 2013 provided the perfect celebratory backdrop for HASSELL to officially open their new Sydney Studio and mark their 75th Anniversary.
June 7th, 2013
“Our designers have produced four separate Vivid installations that are drawing hundreds of thousands of people to the city’s streets,” said Managing Principal Matthew Pullinger
“The Vivid installations may appear modest compared to some of the projects we work on. But they give our people a great opportunity to extend their creativity and sense of fun. It also demonstrates our commitment to making a contribution to enlivening creative places and the cities we live and work in.”
The new studio takes up 2,600 square metres in Pier 8/9. The move to an industrial wharf building re-imagined for a new purpose continues a HASSELL tradition – the practice’s Shanghai studio is in a former motorcycle factory, in Brisbane it is housed in a transformed bakery and in Melbourne it occupies what was once a clothing warehouse.
The new studio is designed to reflect the engaged culture HASSELL has fostered over the years. It is focused on a large double height creative hub that reveals the historic fabric and function of the building. This space facilitates everything from incidental get-togethers, to formal presentations and even performances for larger groups.
