Shaun Lockyer Architects (SLA) has been enjoying living in the studio’s own home, ‘W22’, for just a little over a year. The building is located at 22 Wyandra Street (hence W22) Newstead, Brisbane, within a thriving riverside precinct with a mix of residential, retail, industry and cafés. The project came about through collaboration between three friends who were sick of all the usual grey offices, all in need of a cool place to work. The answer was to buy a 30-year-old sawtooth warehouse, previously used for storing white goods. At 550 square metres, the building could easily handle the mezzanine needed to accommodate the office.
