The Paterson Project
2017 - Multi-unit residential development (28 residential units, 3 commercial units).
This major redevelopment of 'The Paterson Building’ (acknowledged as the Queen of Smith Street, Fitzroy) required the insertion of 28 residential units and 3 retail shops into an iconic, heritage building. This required a nuanced consideration of the old building and its surrounds to establish a subtle, yet functional response. The residential units are arrayed about a central atrium, with glazed open-air walkways, cut into the heart of the building. This approach enables the occupants to enjoy a modern, light filled lifestyle, at the same time maintaining an enhancement of the cultural legacy of the Queen of Smith Street.
