Redfern, warehouses

This former Demco Machinery Co Ltd Factory is located along Cleveland Street, in the inner city suburb of Redfern. The 1889 building on the left was designed by R. Kunstman, in the Victorian architectural style. The 1938 extension on the right was designed by J Aubrey Kerr in the Inter-war functionalist architectural style. The buildings were recently redeveloped and now used for office and retail space and a carvery restaurant with whisky bar in the basement.

  1. ...Hey Jim, what a fine building, the treatment of the entrance on the left gives a Art Deco feel. Thanks for sharing. I hope to see you again.

    1. I always thought that was part of the building the building on the left but it's actually part of the building on the right. I guess they did a good job matching the two styles together with this feature.

  2. Nice lines! Whiskey bar in the basement might tempt me to go inside.

  4. It does have a very "thirties look". Like the rounded corner especially.
