Enware Australia customised raw brass tapware recently for a redeveloped
heritage industrial building in Hobart.
The project in Hobart’s iconic Mercury Building on Macquarie St involved
the transformation of the empty newsrooms and long silent printing halls and
car parks into a hub of art deco industrial style restaurants, bars, art
galleries and office space for the creative arts industry. The redevelopment
was focussed on retaining the industrial past of the iconic building.
Enware was approached by architect Ryan Strating to supply custom built
raw brass tapware for installation in Franklin Restaurant, Betsy Café and
Pigeonwhole Bakers, which were to be built in the existing Mercury car park.
Architect Ryan Strating saw Enware’s raw brass tapware as the perfect
fit to maintain the industrial heritage of the building. He said that Enware
tapware was selected for its high quality, robust and timeless design, and
ability to add plenty of character.
The impressive results of the Mercury Building project have led to the
raw brass taps being used in other projects.
