Transformer Fitzroy – Converting an Old Factory of Electric Transformers

Transformer Fitzroy - converting an old factory of electric transformers - by Melbourne-based Breathe Architecture 3

Melbourne-based Breathe Architecture recently transformed a former electrical transformers factory in a restaurant – Transformer Fitzroy.

Transformer Fitzroy is a vegetarian wholefood restaurant and bar specialising in refined and elegant seasonal dining. The architecture draws upon two defining elements – the garden + the shed – planter boxes create “plots” of intimate dining spaces; a “shed” houses the “tools” of the restaurant, and a material palette common to the garden is adopted throughout.
