Paddington residential warehouse renovation

November 18, 2013

A warehouse in Paddington, Sydney, has been converted into a residence in a joint project between Baker Kavanagh Architects and Honestone.

A warehouse in one of Sydney’s most sought after suburbs, inner-city Paddington, has been converted into a residence. The residential warehouse renovation featured innovative uses of panDOMO in a range of bespoke modern and industrial greys – one of the key interior colour palettes predicted by panDOMO trending for 2013/14.



The warehouse renovation was a joint project between Baker Kavanagh Architects and concrete laying specialists Honestone, which used panDOMO Wall and Floor to create a balanced feeling of minimalism, industrial and home.



“We worked closely with the architect and homeowners to create the perfect spectrum of greys – modern, industrial, but not too cold or uninviting. They had to work sympathetically with the original features being retained in the renovation, such as the bare brick wall in the living room,” Honestone Director Rick Hendricks says.



He adds that panDOMO enabled the creation of flat, even walls and floors over uneven surfaces; and concrete slab-looking features such as indentations and join lines.



Commenting on the growing minimalist and industrial grey colour trend, Ardex Sales and Marketing Director Fabian Morgan notes: “We are seeing increasing demand for lighter variations of PANDOMO Wall Pure range from both the residential and commercial sectors. When used on walls, this grey palette assists to enhance a sense of space, while at the same time, still providing a firm sense of solidity.”
