This laneway warehouse in Sydney’s Leichhardt suburb has been transformed to dramatic effect by architect Petar Danicic.
The Sydney property retains the shell of the ex-industrial space with a soaring double-height atrium at its heart made using reclaimed ironwood timber. It features an automatic louvre roof that diffuses light into every nook of the four-bedroom home.
Danicic has exposed raw brickwork and steel trusses from the building’s industrial heyday throughout the converted warehouse, which is being auctioned on Saturday 13 April by BresicWhitney with a guide price of $3.5m AUD.
Bedrooms open onto the courtyard and have been outfitted with bespoke cabinetry. The 430 sqm space also has its own self-contained studio for buyers seeking a live/work space.
Leichhardt is best known as the epicentre of Sydney’s Italian community, with restaurants, bars and cafes all within walking distance.
