A new configuration of light and open inspirational spaces for a building with a creative legacy.

Originally built in 1930, 17 Thurlow Street is a beautiful example of Sydney’s Inter-war Georgian architecture. For 50 years it housed the manufacturing facilities for Foster Clarks Custard and Jellies until in 1988 it became home to the studio, gallery and design headquarters of Ken Done.

The softness of historic brickwork and the warmth of original timbers contrast with clean lines and modern efficiency.

Cadmium’s first major project, the sensitive rejuvenation of this building retains its unique industrial details and the character of its warehouse structure.
