The Ribbon Factory
10 generous apartments are inserted into the external walls of the former factory.
Key elements of the factory are still legible to enhance the industrial aesthetic. New roofing extends upward from the original ridge to bring northern sun deep into the top level lofts.
The lofts enjoy high ceilings, unimpeded views of the surrounding neighbourhood and a northern aspect.
Recycled timber joists and timber trusses are a reminder of the previous industrial use. Some of the existing heavy timber beams are reused in the first floor apartments to maintain the industrial character.
