Brickworks Design Studio

Brickworks Design Studio

Industry professionals, style conscious home builders and passionate renovators can now immerse themselves in the total Brickworks product experience with the launch of Tasmania’s first Brickworks Design Studio. Housed in the old Marine Board building on Franklin Wharf, the studio stores an impressive selection of Brickworks building products, boasting everything from clay brick and natural stone to timber.   From BYA Architects, Drew Edwards has created an interior space that can easily and effectively be transformed from design and product selection space, to an event space, with maximum ease of use. The space is dynamic and approachable for industry and consumers alike. “Effectively this is the Brickworks shopfront and it needs to be a showcase of their products. A heritage-listed Georgian Building does not lend itself to the contemporary shopfront approach, so to maximise views into the studio we created glass-box entries around the existing solid timber doors, which can then be left open when the space is occupied. The glass entries control the waterfront weather conditions and maximise views to the interior displays. Lighting is incredibly important; the Studio has brought the waterfront to life at night with its interior display” – Drew Edwards, BYA
