Launceston Substation



Launceston Substation


This former Hydro substation is a Launceston landmark, which had fallen into a state of disrepair. Located adjacent to the iconic Cataract Gorge, the substation was built in 1922 and closed in the 1960s. While not heritage listed, it holds cultural significance that required a scrupulous and sensitive approach. A high level of respect was given to the existing fabric as the architects, S.Group, embraced the existing architectural and industrial values, while being tasked with the challenge of developing the derelict substation into a modestly scaled, yet highly detailed home.
