This boutique building is located in a quiet cul-de-sac street in the Flour Mill of Summer Hill.
The Wheatstore conceals 27 light and bright two and three bedroom apartments. The contrast of this unique triangular structure complements the historical aesthetic of the adjoining Durum Silos.
Floor-to-ceiling windows strategically placed to create rhythm and interest punctuate the dark charcoal façade.
How exciting it would be to make your new home within the iconic walls of the wheat silos. The four circular towers house 56 apartments, a mixture of two and three bedroom as well as one bedroom with study. The exterior’s curved walls are echoed within, adding an extra layer of interest to the contemporary interiors. At the peak of the 14 storey silos sit two penthouse apartments with roof terraces enjoying spectacular 360 degree views.
The lobby celebrates the silos nostalgia by highlighting the beauty and strength of the original structure.
The Granary pays homage to the original buildings on site by mimicking their scale and profile. The southern four storeys represent the workshop which was simply clad in corrugated iron sheeting, and the northern nine storeys reflect the adjoining timber silo. The two are now joined by a continuous textured skin that reveals the interior through layers of decorative perforated mesh and horizontal louvres. The Granary offers choices of one and two bedroom apartments
The Malthouse cleverly connects the old with the new and the inside with the out.
The exterior of the Flour Mill’s Malthouse celebrates the building’s industrial heritage – with angular rooflines imitating those of traditional Sydney cottages atop natural brick referencing the nearby Mungo Scott building – and its industrious past.
The intricately patterned brickwork, decorative metal screening and inviting colours engage residents and visitors alike.
A 20-metre high void illuminates the lobby with natural light. This bright welcome is carried through to each of the 98 apartments – a mix of one, two and three bedrooms – which offer clear views either over the light rail corridor towards the city or the nearby parklands.
