"the loft" marquee by joyce + made

Monday 19 December 2011

This marquee for the Victorian Spring Racing Carnival was designed by my obscenely talented friends, Tarryn and Demie of Joyce + Made. It was commissioned by Bigger Than Ten Bears and built by CBD Contracting (the same builders responsible for Aesop stores around Melbourne and Paris).

It's hard to imagine, but Joyce + Made is a fairly new practice and this is one of their first completed projects. Am I being biased here or is this project freaking amazing and so much better than what you'd expect from a race day marquee? I'd expect something overtly glitz, erring toward gaudiness but instead, the design response is beautifully restrained. It's got all my great loves in one: a minimal but warm palette, fine detailing, repetitive geometry, suspended objects and all laced with beautiful, vivid greenery. In my eyes, this space is magic time infinity.

  1. Moleskine journals are well made, utilitarian things, which will permit a boundless introduction to your organization name, empowering your group of onlookers to retreat to it over and over. It is a to a great degree helpful item, to create prominence and brand mindfulness among the masses. http://www.mordocrosswords.com/2016/09/time-on-marquee.html
