Work Description

Refurbishment of Building K Conversion to Digital Laboratories

The firm was engaged to design a state of the art digital photographic studio and traditional photographic processing laboratory and teaching facility within an existing heritage listed building on the Hornsby TAFE campus. The layout features tow digital studios for the training of up to 40 students. These rooms are linked to printer rooms to produce the artwork.

The photographic laboratory contains separate spaces for negative processing and for the development of prints in a traditional darkroom. Also, contained within the facility is a professional photographic studio, complete with lighting rigs, blackout shutters to the windows, pin-up backdrop, and white-washed coved corners to eliminate lines of perspective during the photo shoot. The facility also utilises the corridor space as a place of exhibition for the students.
