2018 Master Builders excellence in housing awards – WINNER Best Renovation/Addition over $1 Million
Originally a 1920s suitcase factory, the results of this incredible renovation is four storeys of contemporary, light-filled luxury. It features a fully self-contained apartment on the first floor, several large living spaces on the second, as well as a spacious gym, bathrooms, guest bedrooms and fully functioning overflow kitchen, accessed by a glass-walled lift installed in the original goods lift shaft. Many of the walls were removed from the building, while several historic features such as the original jarrah floors and the oregon ceiling beams were recycled and repaired. All cabinetry and feature wall panels were made from industrial-blackened steel. Custom-made steel and glass bar units were commissioned, using aged brass and granite as the highlights.
