Live work loft

If the last project by Ensemble Architecture and Elizabeth Roberts Design was all about living large in a narrow space this one is about living and working in an expansive loft. The large industrial building is home to a sculptor wife and chef husband. Half is an artist studio and the rest a light and bright living space with a chef's kitchen for TV productions and events. Love the office next to the kitchen. A series of sliding doors provides separation between more private areas and the cooking stage.

In the dark

Moody, masculine, modern. Sophisticated with a rough edge. Shiny dark floors and floor level mirrors confuse the boundaries and make this warehouse apartment look larger as do the full height doors. Slick with exposed brick by Architect Prineas.

The Water Factory

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?

Clapton Warehouse

A second warehouse today. A refurbishment of an existing space to open it up, adding drama through a folded steel staircase rising to a mezzanine level and large windows bathing it in natural light. The colour palette is restrained and references the building's industrial past. Clapton Warehouse by UK firm Sadie Snelson Architects.

Carlton Warehouse

A house within a ruin is the premise for this new home in Carlton in inner city Melbourne. Rising from a decrepit warehouse shell, through a garden space climbing higher until, at the top, it reveals its living areas with expansive views, new spirals out of the old. The repetition of a circle is a recurring motif of the architects' recent work. Carlton Warehouse by Kennedy Nolan.
