Welsh+Major Architects redesign a historic building

Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority engaged Welsh+Major Architects to design adaptations and additions to enable the building to be used as a restaurant. The design was sympathetic to the design of the era with many original features being preserved. The new addition to the rear features full height glazed walls using Vitrocsa’s Guillotine Windows. When these windows are opened the bottom panel remains fixed into position to form a balustrade.
