ABOUT THE BUILDING
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 house 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.
