A stunning transformation of use designed by Richard Peters Associates.
Tucked away at the end of a lane in the Sydney suburb of Randwick is a 74 sqm simple brick industrial structure built in 1890 by two Irish blacksmiths.
More recently building has also operated as a motorcycle repair shop, secondhand washing machine warehouse, a builder's workshop, and a studio for local artists.
The project responds to the city’s growing need for adaptive reuse, meets the constraints of a limited budget, without compromising the level of amenity or comfort, in fact improving it, while renewing/greening a forgotten lane way.
Plywood add to the visual texture and warmth to the interior aesthetic of urban cool.
