Real Homes: Inside The Water Factory

Posted on Feb 22, 2017 by

Once an aerated water factory, this late nineteenth century warehouse situated in Melbourne’s Fitzroy North was been successfully converted into a residential space by Andrew Simpson Architects. A creative response to the client brief saw the design conceived as two side-by-side dwellings each contained within the one building and connected internally via steel doors. Many original warehouse features such as exposed brickwork, and dark stained trusses, remain.

The response to the brief sees a bright, contemporary space punctuated by a monochromatic palette

This feature was inspired by the launch of the debut Warehouse Home book published by Thames & Hudson.
