Synopsis
Some of Brisbane’s oldest inner-city suburbs have been gentrified beautifully - with councils and residents opting to restore and develop rather than demolish. Grand, and even not so grand, buildings have been saved and sympathetically renovated adding greatly to the visual appeal of these areas. Humphrey’s Bodyworks, a large brick saw-tooth building, which sits on the edge of one of the city’s oldest parks, was one of the many old commercial buildings saved and given a new lease of life as a residential development. Co-developer of the project, Stephen explains, “Coming from Melbourne, I had seen all these really great industrial designs, especially around St. Kilda – and could see those ideas working here. This space was just so interesting being a factory with a saw tooth roof – and the idea came to take the roof off and build four homes within the original external walls.” It was important to Stephen to have the right people on board and he engaged architect Justin O’Neil (formally of Arkhefield). “We were on the same page. I wanted to stay true to the history of the building externally, but inside I wanted all the mod cons.”
