Flourmill Studios

data, awards, description

The warmth and character of Flourmill Studios’ industrial past pervade this atmospheric conversion tailored to the inner city’s creative businesses.

A modern industrial vibe Flourmill Studios offer a haven for creativity in Sydney’s vibrant inner west. The design makes full use of the scale and history of a disused nineteenth-century flourmill. Original timber columns and beams, historic fire doors and the drive shafts, wheels and belts that once powered the mill are features of this beautifully rejuvenated space.

An exciting working environment Soaring warehouse-style areas with concrete ceilings and steel beams frame the studio.Specially designed enamel signs complete the carefully considered interpretation of this landmark building.

Looking to the future With carpets made from recycled PET plastic bottles, bicycle lock-up facilities, a changing room and a pod for the car-share system GoGet, the project responds to the needs of the present while celebrating the Flourmill’s former life.
