Richmond Warehouse Conversion

Tri level Alterations and Additions,
Estimated Construction Cost ~$400K.
Completed 2011.
Redevelopment of 2-storey warehouse shell to 3-storey, 3 bedroom/ 3 bathroom apartment.
A fine, free-standing steel & timber staircase connects all the levels within the full-height internally-glazed atrium which also feeds natural light to the lower levels and wet areas
The top floor living level exploits panoramic city views, re-using the original large-section timber trusses,
and features a seamless link between the outdoor terrace and kitchen for entertaining.
The clients, both former builders intended to manage the construction trades and were therefore heavily involved in working through construction details.
