Egan Street Apartments and Office adaptive reuse, 2006, Newtown, NSW.
23-25 Egan Street, Newtown, constructed in 1922, offered a simple architectural form, utilitarian finishes, original timber trusses, colourful painted signs and artefacts of industrial archaeology worthy of conservation. The project was the adaptive re-use as apartments and studio. Despite the small dimensions of the site, measuring only 27m x 8m, the team arrived at a design to create 3 apartments, with a separate studio shopfront.
