Evoking the audacious architectural and engineering achievements of railway buildings and bridges from a bygone era, Smart Design Studio won the competition to design Sydney Trains’ new Rail Operations Centre. With red brick arches spanning up to 64m, this bold concept delivers a new piece of railway infrastructure for Sydney. More on the ROC here.
North One is a contemporary and striking building, designed in response to the existing architecture of its site in Subiaco, near Kings Park, Perth. With 88 apartments above ground floor retail and commercial spaces the project strikes a balance: the local, traditional material palette of face brick and rendered surfaces is assembled into more modern forms. The result is a place that belongs in its surrounds, yet retains its own strong identity. More on North One here.
As we farewell 2015, the Smart Design Studio office will be closed from December 25th and re-open on January 4th. We wish you all a safe and happy holiday and we look forward to sharing more exciting news with you in 2016.
