Project summary

The relocation of this studio space in Brisbane created an opportunity to address the team’s concerns with their existing office and curate a design that specifically suited their needs.

From the outset, one of the key considerations was to retain as much of the existing conditions as possible to not only ensure a cost-effective design solution, but also limit the amount of waste produced in the process. Each new element, whether it be a material, piece of furniture or change to the existing layout, was measured for its impact on the design and benefit to the overall outcome.

The project showcases 4 uniquely crafted murals co-created between our in-house Branded Environments team with Bernice Hookey, a proud Waanyi and Muruwari woman, to weave in community and reconciliation, and explore multiple aspects of culture and life through both pre and post-colonialism lenses.

i2C’s Brisbane studio reflects our values and place in the wider community through simple but impactful changes. The interior design adds vibrancy through colour and graphics while the open space brings natural light and creates a place to meet, collaborate, and entertain.

The experiential graphics invite us to explore place through cultural icons and symbols that build upon the fabric of the local and regional community of South Brisbane. Co-created with Bernice Hookey, proud Waanyi and Muruwari woman, the artworks are anchored in and tell the story of place while celebrating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander voices and shared cultures.
