Enware's brass tapware features in Hobart art deco restoration project.

Enware has recently been involved in an exciting project in Hobart's iconic Mercury Building (Macquarie St). The empty newsrooms and long silent printing halls and car parks have been transformed into a hub of art-deco industrial style restaurants, bars, art galleries and office space for the creative arts industry. It was paramount that that the industrial past of this iconic building still remained at the heart of the redevelopment.

Enware was approached by architect Ryan Strating to supply custom built raw brass tapware to Franklin Restaurant, Betsy Café and Pigeonwhole Bakers which were to be built in the existing Mercury carpark. Enware’s raw brass tapware was seen as the perfect fit to maintain the industrial heritage of the building!

“Enware tapware was selected for its high quality, robust, timeless design while adding plenty of character,” said architect Ryan Strating.

The project has lead to further projects using the same raw brass taps, inspired by the restoration.
