Pittella Showroom and Luxury Apartment


The client wanted to update their heritage-listed building on busy Glenferrie Rd, Hawthorn in Victoria. This 2015 project involved a combination of commercial and residential development: a high-end architectural hardware showroom for the ground floor, and luxury apartment above. With a reputation for top-end design, the client had very high expectations for the quality of workmanship to be delivered by Rodine Australia.


Rodine removed internal structural double-brick walls throughout the building as part of modernising and opening up the interior. This required extensive internal propping to maintain the building’s stability.


To minimise the interruption to business, the showroom was handed over to the client before work on the first floor apartment was completed. Rodine Australia delivered on time and on budget during the six-month project.


"We had a very positive experience with Rodine During the quoting process. Rodine staff took the time to really understand our needs. Communication throughout the project lead to a successful solution. Our interior designers commented on how precisely the works were carried out."
