17 Thurlow Street
Set in a prominent position on the eastern edge of the city fringe with large open spaces, beautiful timber floors, wonderful ceiling height and windows to all four sides, 17 Thurlow Street is a classic warehouse building – transformed by Cadmium and Architects Johannsen and Associates.
The sensitive rejuvenation of 17 Thurlow Street offers high quality modern commercial office services all within the fabric of the lovely warehouse structure. The softness of historic painted brickwork and the warmth of original timbers combine with the efficiency of 21st century communications to make this a new hub of creativity, with a flexible range of spaces from 50m2 to 1720m2
Built in 1930, 17 Thurlow Street is considered to be a rare and excellent example of Inter War Georgian architecture. It is a prominent landmark of the local area and is featured on the City of Sydney heritage register. For 50 years it housed the manufacturing facilities for Foster Clarks Custard and Jellies until in 1988 when it became home to artist Ken Done and his commercial operations.
The building still retains many of the industrial details that give it such a unique character. Care has been taken with this most recent development to preserve and enhance these features resulting in light and open spaces amongst strong textures and materials. Set amongst rows of heritage listed single story terraces with open space on all sides, number 17 is Thurlow Street’s most prominent feature.
