PKA's Dawson Street remodelling completed

PKA's remodelling and conservation works to 51a, b & c Dawson Street has bee successully completed.

Including an extensive programme of repairs and renewals to secure the future of three run-down Georgian houses, PKA's project converted the two upper levels of the Duke Street corner into a top-quality duplex apartment, upgraded the existing ground floor retail / restaurant units, and provided state-of the-art serviced office suites on the floors above.

The contemporary design interventions and mix of uses that were achieved within the constraints of heritage protection legislation and fire safety regulations are an exemplar of how protected structures can be adapted to contemporary uses without sacrificing the essential aspects of their historic character or their architectural quality.
