Completed 2012, this project involved the restoration of an existing 2-storey heritage listed commercial building and the addition of an extra level.
The completed building included a Café and storage/parking at ground level with two levels of Offices above. Clad in Zinc, the new level has glazing to the north and west providing a great outlook across Alexandria and in the distance planes coming in to land at Sydney Airport. The east and south sides of the new level take on a folded mansard form to ensure the impact on solar access to the neighbours is minimised. Interiors were simple and materials kept to a budget.
