This project converts a former grocery warehouse from the 19th century into a two level residence. The building is located in Sydney, Australia and comes from the hands of Ian Moore Architects. The object has two street frontages – differentiating between a pedestrian and a vehicle access. New entrance door is in place of former loading dock at the end of a cul-de-sac. The entrance is defined by a full-height steel plate combined with a brickwork masonry, which is characteristic for both of the facades.
A 1.7m height difference between two streets, which surround the house, allows a tall volume of the living space to be created. Kitchen, located in the the mid-level, overlooks the living room, while being separated by a black steel structure with an integrated leather seating. On the same level as the kitchen is a garage. The second floor contains a workspace, bedroom and sanitary facilities. A clean contrast of black and white color is apparent throughout the whole interior.
