Cops are Tops, or, Gendarme the whale

While contracting to PTW Architects, Lull Studios designed this funky police station in Coffs Harbour. Although it was the subject of some consternation amongst locals when the scaffolding came down, we’re now informed that the people of this mid-north coastal region are super proud of the fresh and lively persona of the local copshop.

While the colours were sourced and arranged from our own down-res’d, pixellated photographs of the native bushland, the shape took on a decidedly aquatic look. OK, so inside there are the necessary holding cells and rows of workstations, but we managed some cool moments. How low can morale go when you work inside a big colourful stripy whale?

The hard lesson was that years of cost-cutting within the NSW Police Force mean that it no longer has enough resources to provide humane working conditions for those people charged with some of the most difficult jobs in our public services — child protection, anyone? Nowadays, police working conditions are outsourced to bean-counter Facility Managers who have no eye on quality of life, but rather just pursue the old-school single bottom line. The problems are complex but matters could be improved with some political will.

Nemesis Clock unveiled

We posted a progress pic of the installation of our beloved Nemesis Clock on this site a few months ago. The Coffs Harbour Courthouse has been officially opened by NSW Attorney General Brad Hazzard and local MP Andrew Fraser, and we can now present some photos of the finished product.

Nemesis Clock is many things: it’s, well, ahem, a clock; it’s a poem in flux; it’s the Scales of Justice in retribution neon, balanced by the incisive tally stick of Nemesis herself. It’s ancient with a nod to plastic consumerism and 1980s alarm clocks. But most of all it’s a reminder that nothing is ours by right and that we all reap what we sew.

Burn, baby, burn …

Disco Infono!   If you’ve been out around Newtown or Darlinghurst for Sydney’s famous Mardi Gras, you’ll have noticed a couple of very special phone booths.

Sponsoring Mardi Gras for the first time, Telstra asked Lull Studios to create Mardi Gras themed phone booths. We got to work with the interactive #discoinfono concept and had the two different designs conceived, constructed and operating in record time.

As installations, they’re all dreamy disco – but they come alive when you step inside. Lasers and animated party lights ignite, as does a special edit of that perennial party fave, Trammps’ Disco Inferno. And just as the vocal reaches burn, baby, burn the mini smoke machine kicks in to complete the experience, making for the year’s best selfie op.

A smash-it-outta-the-park social media success, we are already in talks for next year. Burn, baby, burn!
