The Yandina Butchery is a historically significant building built in the 1950s which forms an integral part of the Yandina Village centre.
The proposed revitalisation of the site aims to restore and adapt the existing butchery into a café or restaurant. Infilling the adjacent gaps in the streetscape, the design is architecturally subservient to and separated from the butchery building by a walkway, providing access to car parking and two residential apartments at the rear of the site.
Incorporating a modern, interpretive, yet sensitive style, the new building retains the historic rhythm and scale of the street. Similarly, the residential component at the rear is of a sympathetic and low-scale built form and does not detract from the character streetscape.
The project is intended as a sustainable catalyst to contribute to and reinvigorate Stevens Street, provide amenity to the community and enhance the specific village character of Yandina.
