Timeless Design – Bark Architects
Deb Caruso discovers a hinterland studio that is a shining example of timeless design.
Bark’s Noosa Hinterland Studio was conceived as an early experiment for defining a regionally based professional environment for the directors’ young architectural practice in 2001.
Twenty years on, Lindy Atkin and Stephen Guthrie remain proud to share their space with a team of appreciative colleagues, consultants and clients.
Bark’s philosophy embraces the notion that “architecture should speak of its time and place but yearn for timelessness”, as eloquently stated by renowned architect, Frank Gehry.
Lindy says: “So often visitors comment on two things – what a wonderful place to work and that they can’t believe our building is over two decades old!”
“Our measure of success is people recognising that spaces that we have designed simply ‘feel’ good; we attribute this to our approach of designing from the inside out,” explains Steve.
“Long after the trends and fads have receded back into past fashion magazines, timelessness in design endures,” he says.
All are welcome to experience and explore Bark’s stunning Noosa Hinterland Studio as part of Sunshine Coast Open House on Sunday 24 October from 10am-3pm with talks at 10.30am, 11.30am. 1.30pm and 2.30pm.
