converted to from a warehouse to a three-level residence by australian MCK architects, the existing
two-story industrial space is is retained and adapted to the new home which includes a 30 foot high-void
running parallel to the length of the site. the inclusion of a floating cellar and a rooftop vegetable garden
complements the uses of natural materials – which is also seen in the facade entry with a contrasting rugged
concrete exterior that previews the traversing interior hallway leading to the main kitchen and living space.
