We like to live differently, and we like to feel at home at the same time. And this house does that for you.
— Craigh, resident of Waterloo Street

5 townhouses were built inside and above an old red brick warehouse, and we have a look at two. We speak with Tim and Craigh, a couple who bought a townhouse at an auction, along with Fran, their neighbour and mum of the architect, Jesse from DKO Architecture. Whilst there were challenges with the design and construction, the people who call this "home" love what they have.
