There's so much to like about this space. The drama of a narrow, tall room. The dark grasscloth walls. The bookshelves around the TV. The long comfy couch stuffed with softly karate chopped ethnic textile cushions. The French hang. That rug. Those plants in the window.The sophisticated euro modern meets tribal meets industrial mid century with taxidermy overkill. Culture Clash, a NY bachelor pad by Workshop/APD.
A 19th century industrial building in Melbourne's North Fitzroy has been converted and refurbished by Andrew Simpson Architects. Now two side by side houses the spaces are contained with the heritage listed shell and play with the idea of houses within houses with private rooms that can be open plan or contained via sliding walls and windows and a series of skylights in the ceilings that channel light and fresh air into the internal spaces. A modern, flexible family home with connection to its historic past.
P.S. Doesn't every inner city warehouse need a red Mustang?
