Big congratulations to Integrated Construction Management Group (ICMG) and our client for winning a Master Builders Association (MBA) Excellence in Construction Award for the Tobias Partners-designed adaptive re-use of this old Station Master’s residence in Walsh Bay, Sydney.

Stripped back to bare bones during the wider redevelopment of the early 20th century buildings in the area, the rebuild was a careful integration of modern functions with the fabrics and textures of the original structure. Removal of irrelevancies was key, peeling back pieces of the building it would benefit without, and the result is a clear and unambiguous distinction between the old charm and the new. Kudos to the team on an absolutely stunning space.

Team – Matt Krusin, Martine Merrylees and Leonardo Calica.
