Mancave

What lies at the heart of every home? The living space, the kitchen, the bedroom? A free form carbon-fibre shell? Nicknamed the Mancave by architects  Allen Jack + Cottier the pod contains the bedroom and bathroom in this inner-city Surry Hills warehouse. Part folly, part experimentation in fabrication and form it certainly gives new meaning to cocooning.

Dock St Warehouse

Live, work, play in a warehouse conversion by Brisbane based architectural firm Surroundings. Human centric, holistic. Enveloping, encompassing, cocooning. Retreat and self expression. Building relating to people and people to the building. Meaning and moment. I'm struggling for words to describe the visceral tug this series of spaces is having on me. As brilliant as the sunshine must be when you leave its cool, dark interiors. Dock St Warehouse by Surroundings with interiors in collaboration with Jacks Corner Design. Photography by Camera Obscura.

Still stalking warehouses

OK this is technically a hall not a warehouse but are you really going to quibble with me? OMG. Take a look at this beauty. Seen it before haven't you? It's that Chuck Close print at the end of the hallway that's ringing bells. The Design Files about 2 and a half years ago. The amazeballs home of Georgie and Alex Cleary of Alpha60. Can a girl have two warehouses in Melbourne? Her grownup warehouse in Hawthorn East and her hipster hangout in Northcote? Wouldn't that be a dream! Link here while it lasts.

Stalking a warehouse

I always get excited when I stumble upon a warehouse conversion when I'm out real estate stalking. I get even more excited when the end result lives up to my hyped up expectations. Someone please lend me the money to buy this home in Melbourne's Hawthorne East. It's a grownup warehouse. Seriously stylish. I'd love to see it in real life because I'm sure the photos don't do it justice. Link here  while it lasts.

Warehouse stalking

I'm stalking an apartment in Fitzroy's iconic MacRobertson building. Can Melbourne living get any more hip? The listing photographs, though good, do not reveal the true beauty of this space ... the light. For that make sure you watch the video. Link here while it lasts.
