The restoration of the heritage cell block in Brooklyn jail, was no mean feat. When the work started, the space consisted of room after room of bare concrete, steel vaulted ceilings, leaky toilets, possums, and all manner of seemingly impossible issues.
The team at Denise O'Regan Design (Sydney stylists) got to work with no fuss. Concrete was sterilized, walls painted, possums relocated into their own little outdoor 'penthouses', and in what seemed only an instant we had ourselves a slightly French Provincial holiday apartment.
Everyone who stays in our little converted jail, comments on the sound sleep they have. The king bedroom above, has virtually no natural light, steel ceiling and double-brick walls. This encourages the most wonderfully long and peaceful sleep. In the hot summer, this room is cool, and in the cold of winter, it is so easily warmed.Whether it be the cosy lounge, the atrium reading nook, or the little well lit dining room, Cell Block B is a testament to the Sydney team of Denise O'Regan Design who rolled up their sleeves and got on with the job
