Flack Studio: Masters of Textural Elegance

Nestled in an old 1920’s electroplating factory in Fitzroy, Flack Studio is the home base for David Flack and a team of close-knit designers and architects that all share one thing in common—a vision to deliver contemporary interiors that are creative, elegant, sophisticated, and anything but boring.
