This is Spotswood
An Industrial bygone past reinvigorated into the modern inner west Melbourne. The project seeks to find the beautiful transition from old and the new. There are hints of the past: memories, references, grit and dreams. The new warehouse are built differently. Connected, considered and functional. The buildings shape the New Spotswood; energy, innovation, passion, integrity and quality. Once the heart of the industrial heartland, it returns to bring new richness, texture and bespoke quality.
The design references the steel windows popular in the 1900s industrial buildings. Concrete textured parapets separates each vertical element.
These are a series of pavilions engaged with the landscape, homeage to the Hertiage Building and the Industrial Past whilst engaging with new Spotswood; energy, activity, and connections.
