Sometimes it really helps to step back from what you’re working on to have a look at the bigger picture.
This is particularly helpful, when what you need to step back from is 20 metres of large scale wall graphics!
This week at Doppio, we are practicing the art of storytelling. In this particular tale, the protagonists are the Lemurs in residence at Taronga Zoo; and the setting is the soon to be constructed Lemur Forest Ad

The Davidson Whaling Station Historic Site (DWSHS), located on the shores of the Kiah Inlet at Twofold Bay on the south coast of NSW, is a hidden gem.
Close to the port town of Eden, DWSHS was the longest-operating shore-based whaling station in Australia and the last of its type to close down. The site itself is located in a remote region that is not highly accessible, and with amazing views of Twofold Bay—through Kiah inlet to

It’s no secret that our global wildlife community is under increasing pressure due to factors such as climate change, deforestation and general habitat degradation.
As a point of reference, our current rate of species loss is far worse now than it was 65 million years ago – at the time of the extinction of the dinosaurs.

Diabetes is to health, what climate change is to the environment. A local and global epidemic and a UN Priority, Type 2 diabetes is Australia’s fastest growing chronic disease in Australia. One person is diagnosed with diabetes every seven minutes and, perhaps most alarmingly, for every one who knows they have it, another has it but doesn’t know it yet. However, despite these staggering figures, diabetes remains widely misunderstood.

Parramatta Justice Precinct has a dramatic and somewhat gruesome history. Our challenge was how to present the site’s history in a subtle manner, revealing stories at different levels for those who used the site every day? The design approach needed to engage and captivate a returning audience, maintain historical and archaeological factuality, and respond to the architectural and landscape context of the site.
The 6000m² Parramatta Justice Precinct was the site of the first Colonial Hospital and the first tent Hospital dating back to 1790. The site now houses the new Family Court, Trial Court, Children’s Court and Attorney General’s Office, comprising three new multi-storey buildings, refurbishment to some existing buildings, new commercial structures and extensive civil and landscaping features.
