darlinghurst warehouse, 2000

A derelict 1903 warehouse offered all prompts for conversion to a residence and studio. 

The challenge was to create uplifting contemporary space yet not compromise the unique building fabric. Insertions were carefully considered to avoid restricting possibilities for future owners and inhabitants.

New structure was simple, expressed and easily constructed. Materials demonstrate their inherent qualities and lack of cosmetic finishes.

This project was awarded the RAIA Wilkinson Award, RAIA President's Award for Recycled Buildings and RAIA Conservation Award (2000).
