The warehouse is an original three-storey painted and face brick Federation period warehouse. The building has a gabled roof clad in metal sheeting with both steel and timber framed windows and doors.
The proposal strikes a balanced approach by maintaining the majority of the significant fabric and clearly contrasting new elements and interventions.
In striking the balance of particular importance is the new visually abstract lightweight roof addition. The relative simplicity of the roof addition clearly highlights the detailed, structured brickwork while picking up on the geometry of the gable ends.
The proposed adaptive re-use of the building is intended to not only to improve the use and amenity of the building, but also by careful intervention to increase the public awareness of the local heritage and industrial past.
