Forbes and Fitzhardinge Offices

pa140147pa140148pa140149This is the Forbes and Fitzhardinge office space, completed in march 1983, Designed mainly by Lance Jones I believe. It was an existing warehouse converted to architects offices. Great open trusses all the way through the top storey, and my favourite, a  bagged white brickwork stair tower. The south is all glazed, which gives ideal studio light, and a view of parliament house, central clerestory also provides more light. Essentially open plan, with a basement bar which opens onto a courtyard area. Early signs of Meier influence, white, bridges and those handrails. Delightful.
