Home HQ North Sydney
Repurposing a Previously Unusable Building into a Retail Hub
NBRSARCHITECTURE provided heritage consultancy services to the project architect to adaptively reuse an existing heritage listed site into Home HQ. The site contained former brickworks, manufacturing site (Federated British Engineers Building) and Council depot. It is now a homewares retail complex with 3-level basement carpark. Additionally Heritage interpretation throughout the retail complex provides customers with a unique shopping experience. Finally, the change in use from industrial to retail reinvigorated a largely unusable building without detrimentally changing the industrial character of the place and its surroundings.
