No 92 Wine Bar by Pattern Studio preserves the historical essence of a rendered brick, late 1800s Victorian Georgian Building in Glebe.

M11 is a highly graphic remodelling of a former art gallery on a corner site in Newmarket. This unique, contemporary high-end hair salon draws inspiration from the minimalist art forms and mirrored box-like sculptures of Donald Judd and Robert Morris.
