The heritage code dictated ‘no change’ to the streetscape of this apartment building. However, the client brief doubled the number of units, from four to eight. The solution was to create four modern and unconventional loft-style apartments. The design placed new pre-fab timber structures on top of the existing building to create a cantilevered structure, of minimalist appearance, which is near invisible from street level.
