Stalking a cool dude, his partner, their child and their warehouse

Once upon a time there was a cool dude who had listed his warehouse apartment for sale. I stalked him as I am prone to do. Well I stalked his apartment here. Turns out cool dude has been very busy these past three years. He has bought a new place (horribly rundown but still with warehouse proportions), become part of a cool couple (not sure of the timing of this event but I won't let it get in the way of my story), there is even a cool couple's cool child and they all lived happily ever after in their very cool, restored, ginormous new inner city Sydney warehouse. At least, that is, until they find another rough diamond to renovate. Thanks for sharing your new home Steve!

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.
