This heritage building, occupying a prominent street corner was manufacturing peppermints right up to the time construction commenced. It was one of the first buildings in Victoria to have a suspended concrete slab at first floor level. With a site that is complimented by 4 street frontages, we were able to create 6 attached residences inside the shell and extend across a vacant adjoining site to provide parking and more internal space. This was an exciting project, allowing us to juxtapose the old building fabric against new materials and form. A curved front parapet allowed for the incorporation of a third level under a new lifted curved roof section. The most difficult challenge was dividing the old building whilst preserving the integrity of the heritage fabric.
