Studio Ocho Ocho Stage 2 Construction Progress

It’s been all hands on deck lately for our current experimental self-build initiative, Studio Ocho Ocho Stage 2.  With this project, not only are we exploring ideas about the contemporary work environment and co-working spaces but also varying construction methodologies.

Primarily, we’ve been experimenting on the possibilities of generating a detailed digital construction model that shows all the “stuff” needed to build.  From the timber catalogue (sections, lengths, etc) to the screws, nuts and bolts.

We also welcome Phoebe Wong to the team currently taking her Masters of Architecture at RMIT University and currently co-managing the construction and design process.
