Waterloo Warehouse is a unique commercial building purposely refurbished to showcase motorcycles. It includes sales and service, commercial offices and a cafeĢ within an existing warehouse building in Waterloo.

The original warehouse was the administrative building for Sell and Parker, renowned scrap metal dealers in Sydney. In fact, some of the beams within the warehouse bear the stamp of Dorman Long, the steel producer responsible for the construction of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

The design concept for the warehouse conserves the raw industrial aesthetic of exposed and scarred timber, steel beams, winch hoists and marked polished concrete floors in open workspaces, mezzanine offices and low undercroft spaces. These features are a stage-like backdrop complimenting the industrial heritage of the rare motorcycles on display in the large double height vaulted space.

New works are constructed of recycled timber and face brick while new glazing is detailed from fine steel frame sections. New office spaces are incorporated within an enlarged mezzanine, which overlooks the sky-lit atrium.
