Launceston 1920s Electricity Substation

Series 6 · Episode 5

Serial home renovators Mark and Karen are about to convert a derelict 1922 Electricity substation into a modern, cutting edge home – where ‘industrial meets sleek modernist’.  The building is something of a cultural icon in Launceston, it once provided electricity to the whole town and sits high on a hill overlooking the city. Today it’s an empty, crumbling shell but Mark and Karen plan to transform it into a modern family home while preserving its history and integrity.
