The Workstores

Project Infomation

The Workstores is a company that takes a unique approach to providing storage facilities. They approached HPC to develop a modern interpretation of the warehouses that offers users the flexibility of an integrated storage facility and office space.

The design of the facilities emphasises the provision for a high level of finish and amenity, each unit incorporating a double height space, large glazed openings and skylights to ensure the units are functional and pleasant to use.

The double height spaces ranging from 50 -150sqm GFA, allow for the introduction of mezzanine levels that include a kitchenette and toilet facilities, the bones of a functioning home base for the sole business trader or entrepreneur that requires a place to store their materials and organise a small office for administrative and operational purposes.

The external appearance of the units incorporates both colour and greenery to provide a sense of individuality, identifiability and to soften the impact of the predominantly concrete facility.

Additionally The Work Stores includes a caretaker unit onsite to maintain the everyday running of the facility. The two storey unit provides a ground floor office/ work shop and first floor self-contained one bedroom unit and balcony. The form of the building and the front fa├žade help to break up the mass of the building and offers a softer entry and street frontage for the development.
