Project summary

Hassell’s new Brisbane studio, located on Yuggera and Turrbal Country, is housed within the old Peter’s Ice Cream Factory at West Village, West End. Workspaces enable collaboration, visibility, and flexibility, support agile working, and give staff greater autonomy as they choose their daily setting depending on their needs.

Abundant natural light and lush subtropical planting provide visual relief and calm to support staff wellbeing. Rough edges and historical graffiti have been preserved and softened with natural, sustainable finishes like cork and terracotta. The studio’s adaptability supports after dark client events and community gatherings.

Our studio move and refurbishment have been a gamechanger for us. We feel more connected, engaged, and excited about our future as a collective.

The studio design has enabled us to occupy less space and adopt nimble and agile working while being more collaborative, transparent, and connected across geographical regions.

Our creative workflows are now clearly visible to visiting colleagues, clients and collaborators, and our varied work points and social settings support serendipitous exchange that feeds our creative energy.

Importantly, the studio is where we want to be because it uplifts us, motivates us, and wraps us in a community.
