Harmonising with Heritage. Overlooking Sydney Harbor's iconic bridge and Opera House, COX Architecture has transformed the historic 70 George Street into a functional studio space.
The project focuses on sustainability, flexibility, reversibility, and conservation.

In the transformational project, the architecture studio emphasised a process of reduction, stripping away superfluous layers in this heritage-listed building to expose the original character. Brooke Lloyd, director of interiors, highlighted the need to leave egos at the door, resist the temptation to put their own stamp on it and opt for a light touch on the space. Everything, except the kitchen, is designed to be removable.

The new studio isn't just a workspace; it's a dynamic environment capturing authenticity. It's an experimental setting where the line between functional and experimental blurs. Lloyd describes it as a place where "we're experimenting on ourselves," adapting to the team's evolving needs.

Amid this narrative, the choice of Fritz Hansen's Series 7™ and Grand Prix™ chairs seamlessly aligns with Cox Architecture's design philosophy. The chairs, known for their timeless elegance, ergonomic design and low carbon footprint, contribute to the studio's commitment to functionality and adaptability.

Their organic silhouette, durability and versatile aesthetic pair perfectly with the nau Nami Conference table, designed by Tom Fereday and handcrafted in NSW from sustainably certified solid timber.

The usage of nau Broad Pendants and Louis Poulsen PH5 Pendants, add a touch of modernity without overpowering the historical context.
