Why Project 857slkrls(?)


We get a lot of questions about our name and what we can do to help our clients, so here are a few bits of info for you...


Project857 is an architecture, interior, graphic and urban design studio which is also involved in project managing the Open House Perth event.   Directors Carly Barrett and Stephen Corns named the studio in honour of Carly’s late grandfather, a country cop who’s police badge number of 857 Carly inherited.  


At Project857 we believe in the importance of stories, people and places forming the foundation of good design.  We approach the design and delivery of projects in a collaborative manner and work closely with our clients, consultants, suppliers and contractors to create high quality design outcomes.  Joining Carly and Stephen at Project857 in key roles are Rohan White, Lauren Lenz and Bec Warger.  Rohan and Lauren provide expertise in architecture and interior design, while Bec serves as Open House Perth’s Event Manager and our in-house director of Social Media.
