Those who have been following our blog already know that Yoke was planning on moving house this year. Since January a lot has happened and we’re now happy to announce that Yoke has officially moved.
From one big red brick building to another, we’ve relocated from our old home at 63 to a brand new space at 42 Cambridge Street, Collingwood.
The century-old 3-storey brick building we now call home formerly functioned as a storeroom of the Australian Galleries. It underwent 10 months of extensive renovations at the hands of Building and Interior Design firm Lee Harper Design.
Before the planning began, we had collected our ideas of the perfect creative studio on a dedicated web page that functioned as the starting point for Lee when coming up with the first draft of designs.
When Lee was converting the old warehouse into a modern workspace, he wanted to strike a balance between creating a comfortable working environment and honouring the historical value of the building.
He sought to embody the Yoke spirit by using materials such as timber, steel and concrete and combining these with relaxed and communal working spaces. All of this was done with a sense of fun and adventure, or as we like to call it – ‘the Yoke way’.
We moved in mid-July and immediately fell in love with our new studio. It is now the home of Yoke’s rapidly growing team, offering new spaces for photography and production services, while also ensuring we stay close to the important amenities (i.e. good coffee and cold beer) offered by our fellow Collingwood traders.
To inform our clients and friends of our big move, we are proud to present our change of address announcement video – ‘Moving’:
PS. There will also be a studio warming party soon. Stand by for further info!
