The Warehouse is a 100-year-old flour mill building that finds itself proximate to the commercial high street or the MG Road. The close proximity to the commercial heart of the city enabled it’s reuse as a high-end retail. The large spans and heights allow for dramatic displays. The structural building fabric was conserved and repaired. This was based on a detailed analysis of the existing structure and the organic alterations and additions that had occurred overtime. The structure was taken back to it’s original intent and the trusses were repaired, strengthened, prepared and finished.
