Grenville House, located on Darlinghurst’s iconic William Street, was originally designed by Sydney based architects Wilson Neave & Berry circa1925. The Georgian inspired symmetrical design and decorative elements offer a sense of balance and elegance, which have provided overarching inspiration throughout the development process. The original brick façade is adorned with perfectly proportioned sash and timber framed bay windows, which compliment the generous high ceilings and offer the feeling of lucent spaciousness – a feature that often eludes modern urban residences. Integrated to the northern face of Grenville House overlooking William Street is the Grenville Coat of Arms, a timeless reminder of the rich history surrounding the building and local area. During the inter-war period, William Street was the bustling centre of Sydney’s automotive trade, the building housing the famous Larke Hoskins & Co. Today, the area hosts an array of boutique retail and gallery spaces whilst being conveniently located at one of Sydney’s most prominent intersections.
Grenville House will be thoughtfully transformed into twenty-two studio, one bedroom and two bedroom apartments; combining the timeless sophistication of its classic Georgian Revival design with modern finishes and contemporary luxuries.
Seamless blend between the historic and contemporary appeals to the senses
The internal brickwork face has been exposed, whilst timber floors compliment the rich history occupying the building. Each apartment has been architecturally designed to accentuate the features of its unique space – from bold high ceilings and large north facing windows to luminous sunrooms or open-air balconies.
Contemporary additions such as Caesarstone concrete style bench tops and European designed appliances add a modern, lavish touch whilst individually air-conditioning offers adjustable comfort.
Drawing inspiration from the Soho warehouse styles of New York, a seamless blend between the historic and contemporary appeals to the senses – allowing the opportunity to occupy the now whilst being reminded of a bigger picture, a longer past. Grenville House will proudly showcase its existing architecture whilst creating exquisite residences that have been inspired by the walls that surround them.
