About The Building

100 Latrobe Terrace

100 Latrobe Terrace started life as a tea-house and snack bar for the "trammies" at the tram depot across the street at what is now Paddington Central.
The large brick building is about 100 years old and housed living quarters for the purveyors of the snack bar out the back.
Some of the structural walls were removed when it was transformed into a furniture shop, and we've pulled as much of the internal cosmetics out to bring it back to as raw a form as we could get.

Why "King Tea"?

Well, way back when tea was the beverage of choice in Queensland, 'King Tea', was top of the pops. With the backing of the East India Trading Company, it was common to see King Tea boldly painted on building-fronts throughout the city of Brisbane, including ours. We liked the original signage and the history of the building, so we decided to put it back on the building again.
