In more architecture and design news, Bread in Common bakery in Fremantle, Western Australia, has been shortlisted in National Architecture Awards
Architect Dimmity Walker said the building process at Bread in Common – which is located among some of the state’s best-surviving gold rush-era architecture – was unusually hands-on.
“It involved a collaboration with ourselves, the builders and the owner, which is unusual in lots of projects, to actually be working in the space and on it during the process, rather than the arm’s length process,” she said, as reported by The Guardian.
“We took to expose what was left of it as much as we could. Then we constructed our own layer of contemporary detailing that allowed all of the original features to be well read both from the street and internally.”
The winners of the awards will be announced on November 6.
