Celebrating the pandemic with a new phone number (03 9116 4021) & an almost finished Fitzroy North studio! Also confirming we are happy to conduct meetings via Skype or Zoom and can limit site visits to the collection of necessary site information only. We are currently building our new studio behind our home in Fitzroy North (pictured above) which will shortly become the new PHOOEY HQ. In the meantime, we are pleased to continue servicing our projects from either of two convenient locations (Fitzroy North or Melbourne city). Remember, designing, documenting & seeking permits for a bespoke project takes longer than a pandemic, so please keep speculating & let us know what we can do to help! Imagine being able to hit the ground running with a permit in your hand when it's over! And you’ll also be doing your bit to keep the economy ticking over. 27 Mar 2020.
