Leaving the heritage facade as it is, the rear of the shop is where the updates can be easily seen. Diagonal black screens add interest to the rear facade, while steps lead from the laneway up to the front door.

Back inside, we see there’s an atrium that adds an abundance of natural light to the stairs and provides a place for a pendant light installation.
