An industrial loft 

Because I will never tire of industrial lofts and seeing the different approaches people take with these very open spaces, here is one by one of my all-time favourite interior designers, Hubert Zandberg. Filled with a wide variety of antiques with a bit of a safari theme (warning: there is taxidermy and animal skulls for those who find this offensive please pass over this post), it's eclectic and unexpected.

Stalking modern industrial

I'm stalking in the Sydney suburb of Balmain. Once the home of factories,warehouses, wharves and the workers employed there it has now undergone a renaissance becoming one of Sydney's most sort after suburbs. Today's home, by architects Carter Williamson, references the industrial past of the suburb but its contemporary design is all about space, style and luxury. 3 levels and a roof terrace with stunning city views, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms (the ensuite is stunning) and stackable parking for 2 cars. No price on the listing but you can be sure it's multi-millions. Link here while it lasts.

Stalking exposed red brick

A traditional red brick facade hides a contemporary reworking of this 2 bedroom townhouse with a distinct industrial meets New York loft vibe. Think oak floors, Carrara marble, exposed brick and steel framed French doors. I'll definitely take that kitchen and the bathroom has some great inspiration for a very common layout but that back deck needs a rethink. I'm stalking in the Melbourne suburb of Prahran. Link here while it lasts.

Stalking a warehouse apartment

I'm in my beloved Fitzroy in inner-city Melbourne and I'm stalking warehouse apartments. High ceilings, beams, large steel framed windows. What's not to love? I'm already fantasising about my midlife crisis and the need to escape to hipster heaven. Speaking of middle age hipsters don't miss the video. Link here while it lasts.

A photographer's newly built home in Copenhagen

Architecture, interior and design practice Studio David Thulstrup knows how to create beauty from something very raw and industrial, making this home a total urban dream. The renowned photographer Peter Krasilnikoff (who took these photos) commissioned us for his private residence in Copenhagen. Our inspiration evolved from worn-out warehouses and factories with their blackened steel and old bricks; a concept which was sparked by the desire to retain the three raw-brick walls of the old garage on site. The design is focused around a central mirror-clad atrium, which floods all three floors of the residence with natural light. The atrium is lush with specially selected grasses, plants and a feature tree which is visible from all floors - creating a central and bright oasis.
