Scape Swanston


Murals, 2018.

David Booth and I collaborated with Scape Student Accommodation Australia, taking on the role of creative curators for the new space on Swanston Street, Melbourne. Our first project featured murals in the communal living spaces by David, and I transformed the ground floor lift lobby with a colourful, abstracted streetscape.
