Jason Gibney created this beautifully crafted apartment in Bronte for his family. Minimalist. Streamlined. Honest in its materials. Clever in its use of space. Look closely and you will realise that he has extended into the roof space of his typical "six pack" apartment block. As for the kitchen hidden behind the wall ... brilliant! Jason is Managing Associate Director at Sydney architectural firm Tobias Partners. All I wish for (besides the ability to live so simply) is for larger photos! Via the Houses Awards.
A big thanks to François for tipping us off to the website of Herbst Architects, based in Auckland, New Zealand. Their designs are works of art, and I'm in awe of how they merge the indoors with the outdoors. And as I mentioned last week, I'm a big fan of wood walls...such a simple and graphic way to bring nature indoors. (Also loving the stone/mesh walls - Jo says they're called gabions - seen in the 3rd photo and then again after the jump).
