Carmody Groarke has unveiled these plans to convert three former wool-processing sheds in the Australian outback into a new film studio.

The NRS Film Studio scheme, which has now been submitted for detailed planning, is at the heart of a larger masterplan for the site in the remote town of Cowra, four hours' drive west of Sydney. The up-and-coming London-based practice, directed by former David Chipperfield duo Kevin Carmody and Andrew Groarke, intends to add a new pavilion-style entrance to the existing 45m-wide agricultural sheds. Wrapping around a revamped administrative and backstage block, this canopy-like structure is to be built from pigmented GRC lightweight concrete. The vast sheds, which have been empty for almost six years, are being cleaned up and are being used in a 20-part documentary on World War Two.
