Warehouse living in inner-city Sydney

I've always dreamed of warehouse living but this Surry Hills conversion by Josephine Hurley Architecture takes it to the next level. Those windows are to die for, the brick on fleek and the modern minimalism the perfect counterfoil to this historic industrial building.

Together Apart

My sister and I shared a bedroom for many years as children. There would have been far fewer fights if our parents had divided our room like this. Beds above, desks below and pull out dividing walls. Hang on. There better be another reading cubby on the other wall or it won't end well ;) Together Apart by Melbourne-based Architecture Architecture.

Stalking a dream

I was stalking in the Melbourne recently when I can upon two apartments for sale. The building, the gardens, so beautiful. What a dream ... and they are. You see I'm stalking computer generated renderings. Very good renderings I might add.

"Envisioned by architectural developer Orchard Piper, Huntingtower Road offers beautifully proportioned homes in the heart of Armadale. In collaboration with esteemed architects Jolson and landscape architects Myles Baldwin Design, this rare property comprises ten finely detailed homes immersed in greenery."

Sigh. Now if only they look as good after they are built and sold (don't choke on the price) and the new owners move in with their own pieces of furniture. For now though I can dream. For sale here and here while they last.

Stucco and brass

The architects own house. Luxury of space and materials. The silky smoothness of stucco, the cool touch of stone and marble, the outrageous beauty of a brass kitchen. It could be a dream but instead it's a dream house. Armadale Residence by Rob Mills Architecture & Interiors.
