Electra House | Hospitality⁠ ⁠ A $10 million restoration and transformation of the 1900 Heritage Listed building into a multi-level hospitality venue. The King William Street site in the heart of the city had remained in a dormant state for over 20 years with little to no expenditure over its lifetime. Previously used primarily as offices, the redevelopment has allowed the general public to use and appreciate the historic building and let it live true to its name, Electra ‘the bright one’⁠ ⁠ Pictured is the southern side of the building where the addition of an outdoor beer garden sits on a formerly vacant allotment of land. The scale and form of the new south facing facade is complementary to the existing geometry, using simplified red brick to not take away from the original detailing. New and old are tied together by the new stair that snakes its way down to the beer garden, creating a focal point yet intentionally maintaining the heritage building as visually dominant.⁠ ⁠ ⁠ Builder — @schiavelloconstruction⁠ 📷 — @david_sievers_photography⁠
