“The new workplace employs the wireframe area of modelling software program as real-time infrastructure via the installation of custom-steel grid-mesh,” said Caught. “Function spaces are carved out of this matrix to give a sense of spatial division while retaining views across the entire studio.”

“The LED hydroponic program is a pilot task for both Sibling and Squint/Opera,” said Caught. “We inserted a system generally utilised in an industrial setting for a workplace context.”
