New Generation Affordable Housing - Paddington, NSW*

Located in the heart of Paddington, this building was an old boarding house from the 1930s, in very poor condition and is classified as a contributory item to the heritage conservation area. The decision to upgrade the building from the ground up, was made from the very start of the project. The delicacy of the work was to upgrade the building’s services in a very tight site while managing maintenance work to the facades to keep its integrity, and improving the internal configuration of the floors to better suit our times and the requirements of the area’s residential market. The result of this process brought to life an array of stylish contemporary apartments, delicately inserted into the old building’s fabric using natural  materials and details to enhance the character of the building.
