Fitout for a research facility that specialises in garment testing


The combustible chamber is a highly technical advanced testing unit that is a key part of the research in Fashion and Textile School in the Brunswick Campus. The technical nature of the equipment together with the servicing leaves little room for architecture. The concept here builds on the way finding deployed in B516 where we used a camouflage technique to absorb all the servicing and equipment. The double stripe pattern picks up on the work done by visual and installation artist Carlos Cruz Diez, where giant objects and space are painted in colours that effect the way you view the object, its size and scale.
