WMK PINK RIBBON BREAKFAST
1 MARKET STREET

WMK PINK RIBBON BREAKFAST

On the 26th of October WMK’s staff got together at their latest refurbishment project - 1 Market Street, Sydney, to host a Pink Ribbon Breakfast to raise money for Breast Cancer research.

Delicious food was served in a first rate venue, everyone had the chance to catch up over a coffee whilst raising money for a very worthy cause.

Also, did you know that ever since the National Breast Cancer Foundation was founded in 1994, 30% of women diagnosed with breast cancer lost their battle but in less than 20 years, through research, this percentage has been halved?

A grand total of $430 was raised on the day, so a huge thanks to everyone who took part.

WMK WINS TRIP TO EUROPE
WITH FLY FORBO

WMK WINS TRIP TO EUROPE WITH FLY FORBO!

WMK Architecture was selected as the Australian winner of the 2012 “Fly Forbo” competition for the YUM! project, for which the prize was a design-based 7 day tour for two to Europe, led by the Forbo team.

Petra Bonamy and Vicki Murphie jetted off in September to Amsterdam and London to soak up the sights. Highlights in Amsterdam were the visit to Forbo’s design studio in Krommenie to see first-hand how Forbo products are manufactured, the Van Gogh Museum, dinner at the gorgeous glasshouse Restaurant de Kas where organic regional produce delighted the tastebuds, and an architectural tour of Amsterdam’s newer architectural precincts. Of particular interest was the area known as the “Islands” of Java and Borneo which blends contemporary architecture with the traditional design of old Amsterdam.

The London tour included time at the V+A Museum viewing numerous art installations and a retrospective of Heatherwick Studio’s work, the 100% Design interior trade exposition, dinner at Asian fusion restaurant Hakkasan, and a walkthrough of Tent London which brought together over 200 international exhibitors of furniture, lighting, ceramics, textiles, materials and accessories.
