shepherds boutique apartments
project: Shepherds Boutique Apartments
location: Launceston, Tasmania
awards: 2008 inaugural Launceston city council heritage award
description: A unique heritage listed building located in the Launceston CBD which originally functioned as a bakery with workers residences. The project consists of upgrading two existing units into high quality boutique style apartments, as well as the conversion of an existing bakery space into a studio apartment. Extensive research was undertaken to find the original architectural drawings and colour scheme. Previously painted in a prosaic muted Georgian colour scheme in off whites and pinks, it has now been repainted in line with the original colour scheme and once again features prominently within Launceston’s heritage fabric.
