Facelift for venerable Noosaville complex

Ever felt like you needed a pick me up? And have you then gone and gotten a haircut and felt a little bit better?

That’s what the proponents of 10 Thomas Street, Noosaville are proposing.

RG Strategic have just submitted a Minor Change Application for the redevelopment of the roof and facade structure of the complex, which is now over 30 years old.

The proposed Minor Change to the existing approval seeks to remove part of the existing roof and replace it with a new contemporary designed roof. The proposal seeks to remove the outdated curved roof areas and replace them with a pitched roof to the ground floor and a fly-over roof that wraps around the central courtyard and into the road reserve. The roof to the upper level is not being replaced – only the curved portion over the entry, which is being replaced with a modern symmetrical architectural element.

While no changes are proposed to the uses or gross floor area, the new design creates a contemporary roof form that retains some of the old charm of the development. Sketchi Architects have designed a structure that brings the complex into the 21st century.

The current roof structure is dated and overdue for a remodel.


Plans for the new roof structure and facade

Plans for the new roof structure and facade show a focus on complementary signage and a lighter roof structure allowing for more light and circulation.

The new structures leave existing premises in place but provide a more contemporary experience for visitors.

Working with Russell on our new project, Larder & Baked no doubt allowed our venture to have its approvals in on time and with minimal hassle. Russell is a wealth of knowledge, super easy to work with and most importantly supportive of all businesses. Big and small. we're already working with RG Strategic on a new licence for our business and look forward to having his skilled expertise on all of our future ventures.

I had a meeting with RG Strategic seeking advice and direction regarding development for a property we were looking into. The depth of knowledge and experience meant that the information they provided and the brainstorming we did together left me as confident as possible about the decisions I made. I feel comfortable knowing I have RG Strategic to work through and get Town Planning advice and work through strategy on my developments. Thank you very much team.
