(Overview photos show existing conditions.)
A newly purchased Mid Century home by a young couple called for an exciting reimagining of the main living spaces with furniture & lighting. Springboarding off the idea of a conversation pit, the pieces in the room were collated for maximum enjoyment by the owners and their guests, ensuring that every seat is just as special as another. The collection of pieces are both minimalist in form and maximalist in texture and finish, in contrast to an architectural design style that Adolf Loos in a 1908 essay heralded as having succeeded by its absence of ornamentation.

More information coming soon.

Room With a View Apartment .

Renovation

Current


A renovation of a two bedroom apartment in Fitzroy North. Redesigning the kitchen, bathroom, and inserting a new ensuite into an otherwise underutilised anteroom. The name comes ironically, as the apartment project renovates 3 existing spaces- each without windows. The dark kitchen has opened up with a servery and floating shelves over the bench. Now views through to the north facing windows and trees beyond will be enjoyed, and framed by the timber shelves. This small kitchen retained all services in their existing locations as a cost saving measure. The ensuite (disconnected but adjacent to the bedroom), now occupies what was an empty landing space, taking advantage of a skylight to bring in a dark palette of inky mottled walls and Japanese glazed tiles. New windows transport light from here into the apartment beyond. The existing (and now main) bathroom with a low ceiling and no window felt flat, dark and outdated. Inserting interest through white tiles with shade variation and making a feature of the floating vanity will bring this room the life. The “view” in this room is based on Michel Foucault’s concept of the Heterotopia, where the Mirror acts as a window into a world that is both real and not real, to a place that allows one to see oneself in space.

Breakfast In The Sun Townhouse .

Renovation

Unrealised


A feasibility concept for a renovation to a townhouse with a previously dysfunctional kitchen located within a small open plan living / dining / kitchen. Changes included all new joinery, a new island bench rotated toward a new window opening facing the east, to allow for a full embracing of the concept ‘breakfast bar’, and to make even a casual meal a blissful moment of pause.

Services:
Concept design.


Unrealised.
