Heritage and Adaptation at Heirloom
December 22, 2015 3 Comments
Today I got to do fascinating tour through the Heirloom development in the East End (aka the Cantonment or the Woolstores Precinct – still trying to find a better name).
The development i now well progressed and I was deeply impressed by how Match are reusing and adapting the heritage elements of this iconic Freo building.
One clever technique was new raised floors with sound-proofing and servicing under them that enabled the old (and rather uneven from many decades of moving wool) original timber floors to be kept and exposed as ceilings in each of the apartments. Very special.
