Warehouse conversions have become quite popular in architecture as creatives are trying to preserve industrial elements from the past, bringing them to contemporary times with a subtle design update. In any city, this adds a strong character that is accessible and attention-captivating. Another reason for the increase of warehouse conversions might be concerns for sustainability, where developers are aiming to utilize what is left from the past rather than build for the future.
The latest example in this category is Ian Moore Architects' project in Redfern — an inner-suburb of Sydney, Australia. With a focus on preservation, the studio revamps the space to house a "[light-filled] four-bedroom home, an equine genetics laboratory and a garage for classic cars."
