An existing multi storey warehouse, close to the Melbourne CBD was extensively renovated to create seven individual townhouses.
The existing concrete structure, which presents as a grid on the building façade was retained in its entirety, defining the rhythm of the external elevations. Working within this grid, a geometric pattern of varying window openings, and solid rendered panels, as well as the retention of original brickwork creates a bold, yet structured presentation to the formally industrial neighbourhood.
The combination of white, and primary colour rectilinear panels takes its cue from the De Stilj movement that originated in early 20th century Netherlands, while the retained brickwork and original signage maintains a connection to the building’s former use.
