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.
