An apartment with a retro edge by The Archers

My favourite interiors are those that cannot be replicated, that are edgy and eclectic and have a retro vibe. The Archers made that happen with the gut renovation of this bland 80's condo and created something unique and fabulous. The client, an art advisor, asked for "great floors and great lighting". The only elements left standing after demolition were the clear anodized aluminum windows; we repeated the material by introducing a series of aluminum pocket doors and interior windows with white glass panels in varying degrees of transparency, bringing natural light into formerly dark interior spaces. The new floor plan enlarges the primary entertaining zones, and creates a clean backdrop for ever-changing art installations. The floors are wide planks of reclaimed oak that only align to the central spine of the apartment. Many green materials have been incorporated, including recycled matte porcelain wall paneling in the bathrooms. Furnishings include a custom olive wood dining table by The Archers and pieces by Lina Bo Bardi, Oscar Niemeyer, and Warren McArthur.

Check out a few more projects by The Archers here, here and here.
