The warehouse’s art deco exterior and the neighborhood’s creative/industrial past provided rich inspiration for the design. Once a hub for manufacturing, Cremorne has seen an influx of young professionals, start-ups and creative industries in recent years, breathing new life into its mix of warehouses, factory shells and Victorian cottages.
The team at Biasol retained the warehouse’s brick bounding walls and the steel trusses that supported the roof. The exterior was refreshed with a vibrant pink and grey palette, which continues inside as a subtle highlight. New steel signage picks up on the building’s heritage, while a driveway entry ramp recalls its previous life as an offset printer.
Within, Biasol imagined the interiors as a contemporary, unpretentious space with a modern industrial aesthetic. The design installed a new transparent roof that floods the interior with natural light.
Instead of solid walls, glazed floor-to-ceiling partitioning with black framework connects the interior spaces, creating an openness that reflects the team’s way of working. Where more privacy was required, panels of reeded glass provide a degree of separation.
