Earp Bros

Industrial Retail | Earp Bros

Designed by Villa & Villa and constructed by the Intermain team, the new 1,000 square metre warehouse conversation for Earp Bros in Sydney makes the most of the building’s raw industrial fabric, while providing for the needs of a busy product showroom. Key to the design is the integration of architectural ‘insertions’ within the space. Raised platforms, bulkheads, archways and curved walls, draw clients through a series of dedicated ‘rooms’ for the display of ceramics and stone without losing the interior’s light and volume. The design program also involved the construction of a series of more private structures to house the group’s offices, meeting rooms and bathrooms. Materials throughout feature the natural tones of stone and ceramic that tie in with the building’s original steel trusses and exposed ceilings.
