Another great example of ‘walk to work’, in this case through an interconnecting doorway that separates two large warehouse apartments. From a warehouse to a residence and office, this project exemplifies how buildings can be upcycled rather than demolished for urban renewal projects.
This renovation gives justice to the old structure’s unique architecture while providing a wonderfully modern feel almost drowning in natural light. An office on one side and a home on the other, the unified design provides a smooth transition from relaxing at home to being productive at work.
The architect’s notes:
“This project comprises an internal office fit-out for a creative design studio of national retail prominence as well as the fit-out for a private residence. Located in the heart of Fitzroy, the proposal consists of two mirrored self contained units over three levels in a striking architecturally designed building.
The project respects the iconic nature of the existing building by Rijavec Architecture while creating a strong visual identity for the design studio within.”
