Tramsheds Harold Park was a heritage restoration project, which involved salvaging and reinterpreting the iconic Rozelle Tramway Depot.
Located in Forest Lodge, NSW, the Rozelle Tramway Depot was built in 1904 and became an important interchange where people met and socialised on their way around the city. More than a century on, it has a different purpose; after a dramatic renovation, Tramsheds continues to play a pivotal role in community gatherings and remains a place to celebrate Sydney’s architectural history.
The depot was transformed by Mirvac into one of Sydney’s most dynamic districts for dining and learning. It is home to 7 community-based retailers, and 12 restaurants and cafes from some of Sydney’s most forward-thinking chefs.
Maxton Fox was awarded the commercial joinery tender to specifically design and manufacture technology integrated tables and chairs.
Maxton Fox’s R&D department developed a unique ‘swivel-away’ chair specifically for this project, which was thoroughly appreciated by the Mirvac team.
Completed in 2017, the project included custom solid timber furniture, timber planters and cantilevered stools that were hand-welded and finished with reclaimed blackbutt timber by Maxton Fox. Each piece was manufactured to have integrated power.
