The Yandina Butchery is a historically significant building built in the 1950s and as it stands, it is an integral part of the Yandina Village Centre. In restoring this gem we were lead under the guidance of a heritage architect, who proved to be an incredible resource in enhancing the historic character of the building.
The proposed revitalisation of the site aims to restore and adapt this legendary butchery into an authentic and vibrant café or restaurant space. In filling the adjacent gaps in the streetscape, the design is architecturally subservient to and separated from the butchery building by a walkway that provides access to the carpark and two residential apartments at the rear of the site.
We designed the space with a modern interpretation, whilst keeping a sensitivity to the the heritage of the space. The new building retains its historic rhythm and scale on the street. Similarly, the residential component at the rear is of a sympathetic and low-scale built form and does not detract from the character streetscape.
