INVOLVEMENT: DEVELOPMENT; DEVELOPMENT MANAGEMENT
This project is a rare opportunity to enhance the existing heritage building and provide new residential as one consolidated building. The original brief included retaining and refurbishing the existing heritage building to accommodate new upmarket housing, high-end retail and public space.
‘100 Balmain’ is a residential development with 25 units and associated car parking. The new work to the existing building was in collaboration with the heritage architect with particular care taken in the detail and materiality. The ground floor is comprised of retail that opens to a forecourt to the east.
Most of the units within the existing heritage building are accessed by a bridge from Reynolds Street and have lift access from the car park. Bicycle parking is provided for the residents, as well as additional storage. There is retail parking provided in the basement with direct access to the retail area to the east.
