Angela GalatiMasters Graduate
I commenced my Masters of Architecture in 2019, having graduated from my Bachelors of Architecture at UQ in 2017. Throughout the masters program, I undertook a variety of design studios including Dwelling and Density, Adaptive Capacities, and Architecture and Commerce. These studios were greatly enjoyable and intriguing, offering great opportunities to explore a range of architectural concepts and ideas.
The project below was completed as part of the Adaptive Capacities studio, exploring the adaptive reuse of two existing sheds in Northgate. Driven by a large scale urban study, the project explored the insertion of a series of nodes within the sheds, and how they interacted with the preserved existing elements, including the industrial structural elements, and the rail line that runs through from the Northgate Junction station. The nodes provide new function, aiming to transform the sheds into a productive, community precinct, featuring a micro-brewery, coffee roastery, library and community garden.
