The Burcham apartments
Restoration of a rooftop space

The Burcham was originally built in 1918 as the Wrigleys factory. Today the building is restored and refreshed as a high-end apartment complex. The multi-purpose rooftop space has been repurposed as a communal area, maximising the prime real estate.

Project challenges:
A low-height structural solution was required for the unconventional rooftop design, individual balconies and courtyard.

The solution:
The creative rooftop deck design was crafted of organic shapes made in hardwood and supported by QwickBuild for membrane protection. QwickBuild also enabled a flush level between the decking and tiles. The extra engineered support enabled the pergola to be integrated into the design.
