Thesend Island


The Sawtooth is one of the old factory buildings on Thesen Islands that had been earmarked for adaptive re-use. All the existing walls, yellowwood trusses and roof structures have been retained and the building has been transformed into an upmarket shopping centre. 

The building is an example of how derelict industrial structures can be sensibly adapted and re-used to house a variety of functions in a way that still retains the memory and ambience of its original state. The building responds well to its surroundings and has become a focal point of Harbour Town.
