LatStudios were engaged by Southbank Corporation to deliver on their vision for Flowstate; a carefully crafted, open-air pavilion and creative space offering a curated year-long multi-arts program of free artistic experiences.
Stukel Stone’s design won a national design competition based on ‘chrysalis’ which refers to the transitionary nature of the site. Studio ENESS delivered the focal art piece, aptly named Jem, based on light and movement.
LatStudios joined the team to deliver complementary ideas for the landscapes that responded to the vibrancy of this new venue, whilst also respecting the existing Parklands’ character. The project delivers a mix of flexible performance and activation space, primarily housed in the Pavilion, which is complemented by the Flowstate Green, an open sunny lawn, surrounded by generous gardens that are animated with playful custom furniture elements.
Through an intensive, highly collaborative, and fast-tracked program, South Bank Corporation has delivered a truly unique and re-energised venue that has seen significant success and participation since its launch.
