Sharrin Rees Tribute

In this newsletter we pay tribute to Sharrin Rees, who recently passed away and will be greatly missed. Over the past 15 years, Sharrin was our number one photographer and was responsible for capturing the most beautiful images associated with our projects. As a woman she was a pioneer in her field and as an architectural photographer, one of the best in the country.

What makes Sharrin Rees’ photographs stand out from the rest is their poetry, the way that they capture the project’s story in a unique and delightful way.
This had me hooked and I therefore have had the privilege of establishing a wonderful collaborative relationship with her.

MORRIS SUITES IN BMA HOUSE

Over the past 10 years, Smart Design Studio in close collaboration with our clients, has renovated seven medical suites within BMA House on Macquarie Street, Sydney. Within each of the rooms, we’ve created subtly different characters to suit their aspect and function, and reveal inherent architectural opportunities. As a result, the spaces feel rich and complex, whilst retaining our design principle to play new against old in a sophisticated manner. Although the finishes and designs vary, it’s the meticulous detail that binds everything together. More on the Morris Suites here.

Indigo Slam has won the Wilkinson Award for Residential Architecture at the AIA NSW Architecture Awards. A piece of sculpture to be lived in, this exciting project fronts newly-built Central Park in Sydney’s Chippendale and creates an inspiring residence for an art collector.

We would like to thank our wonderful client, Judith Neilson and the entire design and construction team for making this such an exceptional project. More on Indigo Slam here.

Sydney 385 has been awarded at the AIA NSW Architecture Awards. This brick building with sharp concrete interiors uses ‘authentic’ materials to create a robust architecture with a unique character.

For creating this great project we would like to thank our clients, Andrew and Steffan, along with the contractor, Growthbuilt and the team of contributing consultants. More on Sydney 385 here.
