107 LATROBE TERRACE, PADDINGTON
Paddington Central Shopping Centre is a historic development within Paddington, being built upon the site of the original tram depot. The refurbishment of the centre involved removing existing buildings and introducing new building forms so that an exciting and modern appearance could be achieved. This involved introducing floating planes intermixed with lightweight horizontal members to provide additional textural relationships with the lightweight timber and metal construction predominant in Paddington.
This positive contribution has transformed Paddington Central into a landmark development that successfully achieves an outcome of commercial return with appropriate integration with the surrounding community.
